16oz draft poured at Local Option into a shaker pint. Enjoyed on 8.21.16, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a pale golden color, lightly hazy with a foamy white head, about a finger and a half high with good retention and lace. The aroma is nice, light mango fruit, very citrusy with tropical fruit forward hops and some biscuity pale grain lingers. Pretty simple session IPA, refreshing and inviting. The flavors echo the nose, lightly fruity hops, tropical with some mango puree, citrus peel and pale grain, soft and bready. The mouthfeel is nice, lighter body, gentle but lively, active carbonation and a dry finish.

Verdict: A nice Session IPA from Pipeworks, not really a ton of mango going on, but it's bright, tropical and refreshing. I might take a few other Session IPAs over this one, especially at the price point, but this was a solid offering.

Pours a fairly clear light amber, with high and dense foam.

Smell obviously has lots of mango, a bit of pineapple and some pine. Alsa a whiff of black tea, which was nice.

Taste is tropical and full of mango. A hint of pineapple, slightly tart, before finishing with a nice bitterness and that whiff of tea again.

Mouthfeel is thin and prickly. Not a lot of body at all.

Overall, a very tasty session IPA, tropical and refreshing. But the little tea notes were really nice, and gave it a pretty unique touch.

Sample canned on 7/31/17, making it nearly four months old. Poured cold from pint can into a glass goblet. Hazy, slightly pale yellow in color, with a tentative pour yielding a one-finger white head that left some decent lacing as it settled. Big aromas and flavors of tropical fruit juice, with pine and citrus zest in the background. There is also a definite vegetal note reminiscent of celery. Despite the good malt structure and honey sweetness, the mouthfeel is medium light and the finish is quite dry. The vegetal notes begin to fade as the beer warms up and the tropical fruit notes become more prominent. Pretty good beer overall, but for my tastes this would be much better as a food beer rather than as a stand-alone sipper.

Appearance is a nice straw yellow with a good amount of carbonation bubbling up the glass.
Aroma is dominated by mango up front along with citrus, and an herbal dankness.
The tastes are fruit forward with a big mango kick along with nice citrus notes.
The mouthfeel is nice and light with a good lingering bitterness that is helped by the carbonation.
Overall this is a nice lighter IPA from PW that is quite drinkable.
