Made with Mosaic, Summit, Simcoe, Cascade, and Amarillo hops, it is bright golden in color and has intense tropical, dank, and grapefruit notes. By keeping the malt profile as light as possible, the interplay of hop flavors can really shine.

I tried this beer off the tapper at Montana Ale Works in Bozeman, Montana as part of a three sample flight. It poured a clear golden with white head that left some lace. The scent had citrus fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bright malt base and semi sweet citrus fruit presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

16oz can. No canning date information found.
Clear, pale gold colored body. One finger of white head retreats to an interrupted cap and ring.
Aroma of citrus, especially grapefruit with pith.
Taste is an intense integration of high hop and malt base. Flavors of peach, pear, apple. Also the sweet malt base.
Medium weight body feel. Some caramel body. Good carbonation.
Caramel and citrus hop create an attractive beer, with caramel acting as a base.
Excellent hop and malt expression, very expressive caramel carbs.

Grapefruit bitterness really stands out as
Well as dank notes, pine

On draft, in shaker pint glass

Clear, medium yellow golden in color, bone white head, good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange zest, a bit dank too. Taste is similar, solid bitterness. Drier finish. Thin to medium bodied.

This is definitely IT. The ultimate west coast IPA that has it all. This will remain #1 until further notice. Pine and fruit hoppy bitterness that's clean and clear. You can't beat it.

Pours a fairly clear dark yellow with an inch or so of foamy white head that receded relatively quickly to a nice ring. Aroma has loads of citrus & tropical fruits. Taste is resinous, with the tropical notes lurking in the background, but definitely not hitting me between the eyes. Mostly dry, clean finish. Very drinkable beer.

Had on tap. Clear yellow pour with a fat finger of white foam. The key to the success of this one is how much fruit and hop bitters are extracted in a lush way, incredible. Smells of a cornucopia of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, with grapefruit, melon, passion fruit, orange, lime, and mango standing out in particular with dank and herbal hops. Taste opens up in a lushly juicy way up front, clementine and papaya add themselves to the standing out fruits and zests, hops are fresh bursting with dank and bitter botanicals. Feel is juicy before finishing with moderate bitterness, lush, fresh, yet clean and decently crisp. Surprised me how much this captured my palate

16oz can dated 5/24/21 poured into a Teku on 6/21/21.

Pours 1" of frothy, off-white creamy head. Translucent golden orange.

Aromas of pine, tropical fruit, and grass.

Flavors match the aromas with some bittering in the end.

Medium-bodied, effervescent, and slightly astringent mouthfeel.

A solid, good-to-great West Coast IPA of the tropical fruit and pine variety. Similar to Fremont Lush or Ft. George Vortex, but a bit more light and refreshing.

Pours straw gold with a finger of head. Dissipated to a white ring leaving soapy lacing. Lots of streaming carbonation. Smell is tropical fruit, cedar, bitter and dank hops. Taste follows suit. Very bitter with a nice follow up of tropical fruit. Feel is sharp and crisp.
