Great tasting IPA. Smooth and relaxing. I recommend this beer for most IPA drinkers. If you like a nice tasting, not too bitter beer give it a try. Nice color, nice smell, good taste but it's a little murky.

Got this from my friend @csp0380.
A - Pours a clear golden orange with 1 finger of head.
S - Aroma is mango, grapefruit and piney.
T - Mango is the flavor on the front end. The bitterness at the finish is a lot of grapefruit zest.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - A good, solid IPA.

If you love Fresh Squeezed IPA from Deschutes Brewery then you will love this one too. A bit lighter in color (I prefer lighter colored IPAs - reminds me of the Pliny malts) and a little creamier than Fresh Squeezed. A really easy drinking IPA. A must try if you love Mosaic hops. I got this in a can - poured great - not missing the bottle at all.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is danky citrus.
The taste is clean with a quick bitter followed by a honey sweet and some spice. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.

On tap at Brewhouse Gallery. Served in a pint glass. Hazy pale orange. Nice white head. Lightly tropical. Some lemon. Popcorn malt. Tastes less of hops, but still has a melon flavor. Cracker and doughy sweet malt. Grapefruit bitterness. Medium body. Solid IPA that maybe isn’t bursting with hop flavor.

Canned in 21st March 2016. The smell is quite poor. You can smell a hint of mosaic in there but it's weak. I've had session IPAs smelling better. The taste is like a session : watered down. More malty/wheaty than hoppy, not bitter at all. It's quite sticky though. For a similar style, what Modern Times does with Fortunate Islands is miles ahead. I don't understand the 4.18 note this beer is getting at the moment. It feels like I had a lot less hops than the other reviewers. I can't explain this other than it being a bad batch...
