Gorgeously effervecent on the pour, bubbles that make it sparkle! Absolutely Beautiful beer. About 1cm white head. Good balance of citrus and tropical fruits. very aromatic, with aroma on the tropical side. Tasty! It’s been my recent go to ipa.

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention

S: Citrus, breadyness, mango once warm

T: Follows the nose, dryness, & tangerine, mango as well up front. Orange, grapefruit & mango as this warms, plus dryness along with pineyness. Finishes grapefruitty, dry with mango & dryness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, nice balance

A good IPA, will buy this again, if given the oppurtunity

This is a great IPA! Poured into a pint glass, 1 finger off white head with nice lacing. It is a honey color amber. Smells of peach, and hops. Tastes amazing, hops up front then smooth fruity with a bitter finish. This has become one of my favored IPAs, a little smoother whole feel. Hard to explain. Sweeter than Odell’s or Sierra Nevadas Torpedo which are 2 of my favorites.

Canned 1/11/18 (five weeks ago), the IPA is a deep honey color in the glass, with golden highlights. One finger of thick froth leaves bands of chunky lacing behind.

Smells a bit fruity, a little sweet. Nothing jumping out at me there.

Before I even really taste anything I notice the thick, creamy, sticky mouthfeel. Smooth carbonation really plays up how resinous this seems. Caramel malt adds to the sweetness and perceived stickiness. Orange peel, pine resin and caramel dominate. Lasting palette impressions are both bitter and sweet.

On the heavier side of the IPA spectrum, more of a sipper than a pounder.
