Had this beer on-tap at Thai me Up Restaurant in Jackson Hole, WY.

Appearance- It poured a light copper color into a 16oz glass and retained a minimal head.

Smell- Intense hoppy floral aroma

Taste- Amazing hops, hops, hops, with a zesty crisp finish

Mouthfeel- Subtle carbonation with a smooth buttery texture

Drinkability- Though the minimal head and subtle carb. may lead you to think this beer is sub par; it's not! Never have I experienced such a magnificent IPA. The hops and citrus notes leave your palette wanting more. Delicious!

Poured into a tulip a very nice clean/clear dark orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy HUGE two-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some very nice thick/creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt note, very nice citrus note, nice piney note. The taste is very nice hoppy, slightly malty, with a very nice touch of citrus, pretty nice pineyness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, a little chewyness as well, with a very nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, another awesome brew from Melvin. Highly Recommended!

L-This is one beautiful IPA and an exemplar version of it. Deep, yet clear, this beer has a prismatic ruby hue with an soapy white head.

S-Strong melon and, grapefruit. Extremely lively aroma.

T-Sweet, grapefruit, bubblegum.

F-Super chewy for an IPA. Effervescent carbonation.

O-I am an unashamed admirer of the IPA; this one truly wowed me.

Awesome beer. Tons of tropical fruit notes as it warmed.Definitely west coast in style, but very new aged. It did finish a little dry and fizzy, but still very enjoyable.

Served at 40-42 degrees. Poured into Melvin snifter.

Golden orange in color with slight haze. One inch slightly off-white head that fades over about five minutes to nice ring and thin foam layer. Good amount of lacing with some thick clumps.

Aroma is mostly piney and resinous with some grapefruit and mango notes.

Taste is juicy with slightly sweet malt backbone with some dank, resinous, and piney flavors.

Light to medium body. Creamy. Light to moderate carbonation with slight bitter finish.

An easy drinking great IPA.
