Deep gold with a happy cap of funny foam. Sticky veins cling my happier glass.

Candied pineapple, mint, marshmallow and pine. Reminds me of The Calling by Boulevard, which I love - but the aroma is grander than Roma.

Carbonation is light but tight. My hair is jumping and my tongue is swinging

A real contender for the top spot

The cans are great! Hop aroma and the malty mouthfeel are pleasant on this IIPA. The bitterness is there, but not overpowering. One of my favorite of all thime, that is if I can find it. I've had the bomber, which is a bit higher ABV, but I honestly think the can outperforms the glass.

Really enjoyable and crushable. Very smooth and balanced flavor throughout, but not quite as much floral happens on the nose that I normally look for with IPAs. Still a fantastic beer.

I was really looking forward to trying this one and it didn't disappoint. Really nice hop profile with low bitterness. Really glad to have picked up a four pack of this while in town.
