Holy smokes we have some smooth sauce from El Segundo. Last time we tried their Mayberry IPA and it was refreshingly tart, bitter, fruity and crisp. This one follows that trend seamlessly, with sumptuous Mosaic and Simcoe hop presence.

L: Pours a hazy golden honey color into a goblet; just transparent enough to see the little bubble streams throughout. Two fingers of soapy white head rose up from the pour, leaving decorative lacing.

S: Juicy ripe mangoes, pineapple, and passion fruit burst from the glass; a faint undertone of caramel and honey frames it, and a bit of lemon and grapefruit rind nip the nose on the finish.

T: Again, super juicy. That caramel malt is much more noticeable on the tongue, including some molasses notes; other than that, it follows the nose quite exactly. Finish has that impression of over-steeped Earl Grey that I always get from dank DIPAs.

F: Resinous and thick at first, but bitter and clingy with a sharp, acidic finish.

O: This is easily one of the best DIPAs I've ever had.

22oz bottle served in a pint glass. Bottled on 032318.

Pours a clear light golden with a big head and lots of carbonation. Smell is refreshing, lemon/pine. Something in it smells like candy...can't identify it.

Taste is green, sharp. Resinous.

Mouthfeel is very dry. Overall, it's not bad.
