Appearance- Dark orange/amber color. Pours a one finger head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a good amount of lacing.

Aroma- Juicy hop aromas with sweet citrus, peach, and mango. Some malt sweetness, but the hops dominate.

Taste- Follows the nose closey with juicy hops up front that yield mild bitterness. The malt is balanced between caramel sweetness and bready malts adding dryness in the finish.

Feel- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a sweet/clean finish.

Overall- This would be a go-to if it were in my distro. Great balance between juicy hops and sweet/dry malts. A top tier ipa for sure that definitely competes with the best ipas.

Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours a cloudy amber color with a one finger eggshell color head. Solid retention and good lacing. The bubbles form a nice cascade effect rising to the head, as well.

S: Aside from the usual citric/piny hops, there's some sourdough breadiness alongside it, similar to what I got from Ranger IPA, but this has better execution.

T: Again, reminds me of a better-executed Ranger IPA. Starts off with a very nice maltiness to it with just the right hint of sourdough notes, plus some citric hops; and it finishes with a restrained piny bitterness. I like my IPAs to either have excellent balance, or rape my palate to kingdom come. This is very much the former...in fact, it's one of the most nicely balanced IPAs I've had.

M: A little thick body-wise, with solid carbonation. The finish is only slightly astringent.

O: When I first came on this site, I didn't like hoppy beers. Thankfully, I've seen the light, and it's thanks to beers like this. Highly recommended.
