i guess its nice to see these guys come out with a new beer, seems like they have been stagnant for a decade, but this seems a little desperate to me, reaching for something that may have already passed by. the fruited session ipa craze is dying down thankfully, and while its cool that this one skips the blood orange that everyone else used in theirs, i think its a pretty conservative use of these fruits, and seems boring to my palate, although i will grant that the fruit complexion strikes a lovely harmony with the fruitiness of the hops selected, whichever varietals they are, and i think the flavors here are quite good, just way too mild in both fruit and hops, and this barely staving off irrelevancy with this new release. i love yuzu with hops, but i want more of its zesty acidic freshness here to bring out the hops, and its lacking in the bitterness i need in the finish too, this seems even a little honey malty as a result of the absence of hop or citrus bitterness at the end. it tastes fresh to me, well balanced but not as robust as it could be, but highly drinkable with great carbonation and liveliness, its summery for sure, but maybe just subtle enough to be a year rounder. glad they are making new beers, thats the real takeaway from this one, its been way too long for them...

Interesting beer that enhances tropical hop aroma with real fruit, although fruit I have never previously heard of.

Pours golden yellow with medium heat and lacing.

Obviously across of tropical fruit with a firewall and pine resin background.

Definately tastes fruity but not unnaturally so like some of the sculpin line. Malt is present but definately serves in The background.

A good beer especially for the pale ale drinker who wants to try the tropical IPA trend.

On draught at Wyoming Aleworks. Pours a clear gold, an inch of foam. Light citrus, grapefruit nose, cracker malt. Tastes of the citrus grapefruit, cracker malt, slightly dank, easy drinking. Medium body with medium carbonation.

12oz can - man, I have seen the word 'ugli' in crossword puzzles for forever and a day, but this is the first instance of it in a brew for me, I do believe.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, rocky, and chunky off-white head, which leaves some random cartographic pattern lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of prominent tropical fruit (pineapple core, guava, and kiwi peel), dank pine resin, some Pez candy-esque chalkiness, further indistinct citrusy esters, and a generic bready and grainy caramel malt sweetness. The taste is gritty and crackery pale malt, a lesser banal caramel thing, now kind of muddled exotic citrus fruity notes, watery pine forest floor detritus, and more plain leafy, weedy, and must floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite understated in its bored-seeming frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a wee aerosol creaminess arising as things warm up a tad. It finishes off-dry, the still hard to discern fruitiness lingering along with the remains of the malt day.

Overall, this is indeed a rather fruit-forward American IPA, yet with a wan sense of the origins, as such. Maybe it's because I really haven't ever had a Caribbean ugli, or a Japanese Yuzu, that I'm so flummoxed and well, eventually uninterested in this offering.

A thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, juicy. Taste is the same, juicy citrus, a bit like a NEIPA, mild bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Canned 06/06/17. Stored at 42 degrees. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma - citrus.
Head – large (Maximum 5.6 cm, aggressive pour), white, low density froth, average retention time, diminishing to an irregular seven to fourteen mm frothy ring and a partial layer made up of multiple thin islands.
Lacing – poor. Some small islands clinging from the head reduction, some columns remaining as the beer level drops.
Body – yellow, hazy.
Flavor – very light citrus, much weaker than the nose would suggest, with a touch of malt. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – medium, watery, soft carbonation.

A very easy drinking refreshing beer. A good candidate for a lawn mower beer, depending on the price.

Appearance 3.25, Aroma 4.5, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5.

On tap. Pours a hazy straw color with a one finger head that lingers and leaves 4 inches of lacing. Nose of tropical fruit and citrus. Taste is sweet tropical fruit and citrus from the yuzu and ugli fruit with a slightly piney hop finish. Medium carbonation and medium body.
It's a juicy session IPA that uses yuzu in lieu of grapefruit. It's citrus driven with a little punch of American hops at the end. Clean and enjoyable, the yuzu and ugli fruit come through.
