This one lives up to the hype with big notes of citrus and sugary grapefruit and wheat notes in both nose and flavor. The texture is a little gritty but ultimately no concern. Not an everyday IPA for me but different and worth a try.

12oz can - 'mango creamsicle' sure sounds like a pretty enjoyable dessert!

This beer pours a mostly clear, pale golden yellow colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, rocky, and mildly fizzy off-white head, which leaves some splotchy flock of seagulls pattern lace around the glass as it very lazily recedes.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, underripe mango and stone fruit notes, some stoney flintiness, and leafy, weedy, and somewhat dank piney green hop bitters. The taste is bready and biscuity pale malt, some muddled exotic fruitiness, further domestic citrus rind, a damp minerality, and more earthy, herbal, and resinous piney hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a swell time at this particular juncture. It finishes trending dry, the hops showing the most lingering esprit de corps.

Overall - this comes across as a very flavourful version of the style, complex and compelling. What I don't get, per se, is the specific metrics promised on the label, but that's ok, everybody's mileage does indeed vary. Easy to put back, and certainly worth checking out, IMHO.

Three month old can, givingbit the benefit of the doubt. Slightly hazy gold, limited amount of lacing and carb. Sweet smell of peach and grapefruit, bit of hoppiness. Taste is mildly fruity with the above flavors, slightly tart, hint of bitterness. Crisp, clean, okay balance, low abv makes it easy drinker. Not the best of the series, not the worst.

Served in a pint from the bottle.

Appearance: Deep gold color coming off transparent with medium to heavy bubbles.

Smell: Light malts with a piney note. Sticks to your nose.

Taste: Bitter complex consisting of grapefruit skin and juices. It's a touch sweet but not for everybody.

Mouth: Sticky brew with medium carbonation which maintains till the end of the glass.

Overall: Nice brew and great pick up. Will grab again if I can catch the variety pack it came in. Salud!

From the bottle, it pours a clear golden amber with a modest head, slowly diminishing to a patchy layer, but it does leave a good bit of lace. Very pleasant, hoppy scent. Very pleasant, enjoyable hoppy taste. Yum!

Pours a pale clear Amber with a white head that leaves copious amounts of lace.

Mango, peach, grapefruit, floral bouquet, and malt biscuit.

Taste is hoppy fruit up front - peach, mango, grapefruit - backed by a dry floral hoppiness. Towards the back end is a chewy malt biscuit backbone.

I enjoyed this from the can chilled in a glass
the color is golden with white head, lace clings with good retention clarity is clear
The smell is a mix of fruity, tropical and somewhat herbal with mostly citrus hop scents.
The feel is very good with a moderately bitter texture with low malt and moderate carbonation with lightly sweet and spicy quality.
The taste is very good, fresh herbal hop flavor with a gentle grapefruit type hop and subtle spice-like character mild resinous element with a light tropical taste and low malt in the taste with dry finish with practically no alcohol in the flavor
This is a great IPA, I would drink this frequently as it has a good amount of hop aroma and flavor yet is a good strength with little alcohol to obstruct the hops

The beer pours a nice white head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a nice clear golden yellow with an orange hue to it. It looks decent.

The smell is pretty good with a good grapefruit note surrounded by a peach cream and orange note.

The taste is also pretty good with the same note but with a bit more bitterness from the grapefruit.

The feel is good. It has a good medium body with a good and light carbonated tingle and a slightly dry finish.

Overall, a pretty good IPA worth getting and a good take that isn't a milkshake-NE-cloudy IPA.

Kind of a boring beer.

Had it from tap. Cloudy yellow color with a good head and lacing. Sort of a lemon smell. Piney taste, some lemon. Some bitterness. Meh.
