This beer destroys other beers in the same category... I'd take this over PtE.

my kinda ipa. not too big, not too light, and loads of fruity hop goodness. golden hued ale with a small, but persistent head. enticing aromas of peach, mango, and perhaps blueberry upfront, plus more tropical fruits and just enough of a malt backbone to round out the flavor and bring the brew to 7.2%. the fruit notes linger but the beer finishes dry. bitterness is moderate and refreshing. i would certainly drink again. and again.

22 oz bomber poured into a Stone glass.Bright yellow in color with a piney smell.The taste is pine ,grapefruit maybe orange.Very Hoppy.I liked it but would not say its one of the better IPA`s I have had.ABV is right at 7.0.I would say this is a middle of the road beer.Not great but good.Give it a try.

Transparent lemon-yellow brew with tons of lively action. Solid snow white head formation with very good retention and tons of nice lacing.

Incredibly dank aroma, overwhelmingly so. A touch of citrus hiding behind. For someone with my preferences, it's over the top and off-putting. For fans of dank brews, this aroma is probably seductively inviting.

Flavor fits neatly into thirds. Up front is a nice bitterness, carrying notes of pine, grass, and light citrus pulp and peel. The second half brings the dank herbal sweetness intimated by the nose, building to a peak just into the final third. The back end returns a level of bitterness (again with citrus peel), while the hops slowly yield ground to a sweet pale malty flavor.

Lively and smooth; wonderful feel.

This is definitely going to be a polarizing Mosaic-hopped brew. For me, it's right on the edge of the extremely dank brews which I can barely tolerate. It's clearly a well-crafted beer, however, and I think most IPA fans will really dig it.
