12oz can. The pour looks like a glass of grapefruit juice. Almost no head. Moderate amount of lacing. The aroma is a blend of dank hops and juicy tropical fruits. Pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. The taste is dank hops with some of the tropical fruits. Floral at times. The finish is more of the tropical fruits. Mango, papaya, grapefruit and pineapple. Creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Overall, this is a really good IPA that packs a punch.

Straw colored with a small white head.

Aroma: can smell as pouring. Tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, papaya. Dankness as the can suggests "ultra dank India pale ale". Some citrus notes as well.

Taste: pine, papaya, pineapple, citrus, tangerine.

Feel: soft and inviting carbonation is the only way I can describe it, pillowy mouthfeel, slight tingly finish.

Overall: an under the radar gem.

The brewery is 8 minutes from my house which may make it taste even better.

on tap a local bar, pours a hazy, borderline murky yellow. smell is dank green hops, taste is the same but leaning towards some citrus. feel was very good. stoked to learn that my new office is 6 minutes from the brewery, definitely going to have to hit some can releases up soon.

12 oz. can

Pours hazy gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like papaya, red berries, orange citrus, grapefruit, guava, peach, sweet bready malts, with resinous spicy earthy herbal grass and dank woodsy pine. Tastes like papaya, red berries, orange citrus, grapefruit, guava, peach, sweet bready malts, with resinous spicy earthy herbal grass and dank woodsy pine. Feels light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice and unique tasting IPA.
