Pours a beautiful and bright sunshine yellow orange with a very gentle and nice haze and a fluffy two finger plump head of foam.

Bright tropical and citrus fruit notes of orange, mango, pineapple, and other citrus notes.

Juicy citrus fruit right up front gives way to tropical fruit character and finishes with a juicy, fruity, and slightly grassy dank finish.

Light-medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, juicy, soft, smooth.

Overall, quite an exceptional brew all around!

Not quite the burst of wet hops that I remember from Born Yesterday but from that first sip on its darn close. There's a touch of a grainy finish on this. Nice bitterness. Lots of citrus bursting on the palate.

Pours a slightly hazy straw color.

Whiffs of nice citrus fruits.....pineapple, papaya, grapefruit, light pine and just juiciness.

Tastes of more citrus and a nice bitter hops. Big bitter on the swallow and lingering salivating finish. Very refreshing.

Overall another winner. Pale Ale? Drinks like an IPA but I have no complaints. Solid.

Fairly clear golden unfiltered ale. Decent head production and retention.

Juicy on the nose, primarily citrus, but with touches of grass, resin, and tropical fruit.

Flavor follows, heavily favoring juicy hop notes. On the back half, there's a modest dank note, but that's not the focus of the beer (at least not with over a month of age on it). Pale grains provide a nice canvas for the hops. A touch oily on the finish.

A very nice beer, and one whose hop character likely evolves over weeks. Between four and six weeks old, this is still a beauty of an IPA.

Drank this many times in 2016, pulled it off my Born Yesterday review because I didn't know they had separate entries. Drank a lot of this one in my trusty Lagunitas Bell jar glasses. It is a cloudy beer with a gold color that reminds me of some sort of dirty juice. Super active carbonation, foam, and lacing. The nose is a very strong hop scent with a juicy background. Best words to describe the taste are zingy hops. There is a slight bitterness and juicy background behind it. A very full mouth feel with a slightly strong alcohol presence. A total wow beer.

On-tap at THG.

A: Pours a clear light golden with a thick cap of dense foam. A greasy, dense, and thick film lasted the whole beer through, leaving huge thick rings of laced down the glass.
S: Fresh citrus hops. Clean and crisp overall. Fragrant but not complex. Smells great.
T: Super fresh hops over a crisp drying pale backbone. Slight biscuit in the finish with green herbal bitterness. Citrus throughout but hints of juicy melon and a kiss of sweet fruit nectar. No real bitterness.
M: Crisp and clean mouthfeel, light and easy to drink without any sweetness or overly slick greasy from hop oils.
O: My first "cryo fresh" hop beer (that I know of). Exceptionally hoppy and very, very smooth and easy to drink while staying light.
