look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
LOOK: Pours a clear amber with a beige to tan head that shows solid retention as well as solid glass lace.
AROMA: Tropical fruit, mango and apricot, citrus along with pine nuts. Bread malts, add a welcome balance.
TASTE: Tasting the topicals, mango, apricot. Somewhat drying but not at all bitter.
This was a very satisfying IPA. Hops are apparent but not overpowering and balance well with the malt presence.

Poured from a can. Golden in color with a white head. Smells of pine and citrus. Flavor follows the smell, with the pine and citrus blending together really well.

Best before April 9th 2021 on the lip of the can.

Pours a clear gold with a fluffy head of foam that is long lasting.

Big notes of grapefruit citrus in the nose. Dank, bits of grass, very slight sweetness when I take deep whiffs.

Taste is grassy, has grapefruit citrus, mild dankness, some malty sweetness as it warms up but it is in no way balanced, imho.

Nice mouthfeel.

Not a more than 1 IPA to drink at a time in my book. Ymmv.

From can to tulip forms a soft light tan 1F foam head with a little bit of lace. Color is about 70% transparent light amber.

On the nose just a bit of light malt and a whisper of citrus.

Tasting reveals a medium slick feel of lightly sweet malt along with light bitterness. The caramel malt and light citrus hops mix with the tang from the bubbles and leave a mildly astringent finish.

Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat thick although the carbonation helps. Finish is not dry and has malty body along with mild astringency.

I expected more hop notes to add to the flavor of this beer. Hops do come through but are flavor subdued and more about the light bitterness to counter the malt. Above average IPA.

An amber looking IPA with a medium head. Flavor is nutty, citrusy and mild to medium hoppiness. Very tasty. Reminds me of a good amber with added hoppiness and citrus aromas.

4.02/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a one finger head; good persistence and lacing action

Smell: A balance of malt and hop tones, with the malt leaning in a toffee/sugar cookie direction and the hops bringing citrus and pine

Taste: Malt forward, with the sugar cookie impression prevailing over the toffee; through the middle, the citrus arrives first, bringing juicy tangerine tones with the piney bitterness reserved until after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A maltier IPA than I typically like but there is a lot of complexity here that I recognize; a different approach to the style

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice slightly hazy dark golden amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citruc complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach), piney, with a nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden fairly well, with a dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Quite a different take on the style.

Herbal hops on the nose. Slight sweetness on the taste. Feels slightly watered down considering the 7.6% ABV. Good to try, not incredibly memorable. Canned from Tipseys in Littleton CO.
