I consider this my go-to IPA, along with Bells Two Hearted..and consider myself very lucky.

It’s about as good and balanced as you could want in an IPA. Drinkable to a fault, the bite is balanced well on the palette and floral tones lifted by mango and citrus.

TG recently hit the shelves here in st louis, as in like yesterday, so I made sure to go ahead and knock this one off my list. tallboy into an ipa glass, this thing is a fairly hazy orange/yellow, with a big fluffy head that has left some quite sticky sheets of lacing behind. nose is immediately citrus zest and mango juice, the slightest hint of pine and bitterness. super flavorful, it has more of a mango and orange juice blend thing going on with citrus on top, mostly grapefruit and a bready backdrop. leaves some bitterness on the tongue that sticks around for a while. dry and crisp, pretty damn drinkable and a treat to be able to get this now

A 16 ounce can poured into a tulip glass.
Look: Pours a real hazy muddy yellow. Kind of reminds me of the look of pulpy pineapple juice. A little bit of white sediment becomes apparent when its settled a bit. A not-too-careful pour gives about an inch of foamy head, that quickly falls back to about 1 cm, which hangs about for a while.
Smell: The smell is very juicy and tropical. There is the whole citra citrus thing going on, orange, lemon, zest, and then there is a sweeter more tropically fruit. It does smell kind of like orange and mango juice.
Taste: Taste is much like the smell. Juicy orange, touch of tropical fruit. A little bit of malty sweetness in there A nice restrained bitterness towards the end.
Feel: nice body, really coats the tongue but is never not refreshing or drinkable. The flavour itself doesn't last for too long, but the bitterness has a decent length.
Overall: A very good beer. Obviously meant to showcase the citra hop, and I get the feeling I know the hop better for having drunk the beer. I really enjoyed it.

An easy pour from a 16-oz. can creates a two finger sized off white head with long retention a large streaks of lacing.
Very hazy translucent golden straw color appears light straw in front of light.
Dank hops and citrus (orange & lime) with pineapple and yeast for the smell.
Taste begins sort of bitter from hops and semi-dry. The middle is sweeter, less bitter and fruity as abundant carbonation and yeast and pale malt blend together. The finish bitters yet remains on the sweet side. Spicy hops linger a while.
Medium bodied, above average CO2, smooth and never to bitter.
NEIPA like, alcohol is well hidden. Hoppy, fruity and malty.

16oz can from Post No Bills in Sandy City, Monterey, CA. Pours a hazy orange gold with nice lingering white head and hood lacing, smell is candied apricot, peach nectar, and a hint of tangerine citrus, taste is muted orange soda, sweet tangerine flesh, ends with dried apricots, soft medium body with fluffy carbonation. A subtly fruity pale ale.

Pours a hazy orange with soft, thcíck foam.

Smell is juicy and tropical with notes of mango, oranges, pineapple and a bit of sweetness.

Taste is intensely juicy with loads of tropical fruits, predominantly mango, oranges and pineapple along with some fruity sweetness. Bitterness is mild to moderate and perfectly integrated to the fruit. Spectacular.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy, and well carbonated.

Overall, a superb APA/IPA hybrid, with great balance between intensity and drinkability.
