This beer was a very fruity IPA, I usually really enjoy IPA's and this one was fairly good. The initial aroma was very fruity and the taste followed that profile as well. I thought it was a pretty good blend of fruit flavors and the natural hops flavoring of a typical IPA.

Pours a rusty orange with a frothy white head that sticks around. Smell is hoppy, subtle malt, and a tart citrus. Taste is subtler then I expected. The hops stay throughout with the malt upfront. A slight bitter at the end, the hops get stronger in the aftertaste. Could pass as a strong pale ale. Good beer, could have stronger hop. Smooth mouthfeel, a redeeming quality.

A - Pours very murky amber with a relentless massive off-white head that never seems to stop forming. Left a moderate amount of lacing.

S - Grapefruit and mango up front, followed by some lemon zest and orange peel.

T - Pineapple and sweet grapefruit up front followed by a decent amount of mango and malt. A tad bit watery in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

O - Overall, This was a good IPA and very, very sessionable.
