12oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of peach, orange, caramel and toffee. Sweet citrus taste with peach and a mild bitterness.

Tatsed in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz bottle on September 1, 2018. Brewed with two hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest and two from the Southern Hemisphere. Notes of mango creamsicle, peach ring and ruby grapefruit.

L - Nothing shocking on appearance, a solid tweener pale ale/IPA style, that is see through.
S - Smells solid, grapefruit, pith, and pine. Proper.
T - This (and on feel) is where the 010 series shines; better tasting than the last 3-4 gens of Luponic. Maybe more to my taste, but solidly earthy-pine in its profile. Love it.
F - Properly carbonated, but not overly so. Never dies flat, stays lively even after 20-30 minutes. Lovely.
O - A great version of the Luponic, maybe my favorite of their series so far. SOLID.

Not much stood out here. Typical tropical IPA.

Finally, another great one in this series! This one stands out due to the peachy, citrus smell followed by a light and refreshing mouthfeel that is medium in the mouth and dry on the back end.

You get lots of typical citrus but true to the series it still has a grassy, light citrus zest and then in this one that hint of peach.

Excellent! If you like a lighter IPA that is “sessionable” but still packs a bit of a punch, this is your beer.

Dark clear gold in color. Head is white with moderate retention. Lacing is good seems to be pretty sticky.

The nose is bitter citrus with a strong grassy/moss note. If I dig I can pick up sweet white flesh peach but not some much the mango. Its a nice fruity IPA and I dig the grass quality.

That bitterness hits you good but its also damn fruity with just the right amount of sweetness. Peach, a little pineapple and bitter orange zest. Its all good.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and feels slick/wet. Its damn juicy and has easy carbonation.

06/19/18 so not as fresh as desired.
Fruity hops with a lot of peach, grapefruit, and lemongrass
Flavor is a little subdued but fruity with a bit of steely bitterness.
Highly drinkable - drinks like an APA.
Good effort but below average for the series.

The clear golden yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1” bright white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of nice sheets, patches and legs of lacing on the sides of the glass as it eventually becomes a thin cap of foam and then slowly becomes a thin irregular island of foam on the liquid. Sipping creates a couple of arches and lots of small patches and legs of lacing.

The aromas are mostly about the hops with lots of grapefruit zest, but with some mango and some peach showing. Way in the background there’s just a light bit of malt.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the grapefruit zest up front and the mango and peach noticeable but in a supporting role. A some malt sweetness softens the bitterness and the whole set of flavors is in a nice, complex balance.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly prickly from the persistent carbonation. The fairly long finish begins as the fruit flavors and sweetness begin to fade to that long dry bitter ending that invites another switch.

Overall this is a well made, very enjoyable and drinkable beer. The fruit flavors from the hops blend together in nice balance in which each makes a noticeable contribution.
