Notes / Commercial Description:

32oz. growler into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is dank tropical hops. Hints of pineapple. citrus and starfruit. Sweet and juicy. Beer opens papaya and pineapple. Follows with a juicy sweetness balanced by a mellow grassy and piney bitterness. More tropical fruit in the end and finish. Feel is light with moderate to low carbonation. Goes down super smooth with a clean but accented end and a bone dry finish. Amazingly drinkable.

One of Sloop's best? The taste and feel are certainly second to none.

On tap at Superior Merchandise Company in Troy, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazy dark orange, with a small fizzy head, and good amount of lacing.

Smells like weed, herbal hops, mango and tangerine.

Sloop really knows how to nail a great IPA and this is no exception. It's got an exceptionally smooth taste thanks to the oats. It's pretty citrusy and tropical up front, tangerine and grapefruit and maybe some mango, with an intense but very pleasant bitterness on the finish. I enjoy the mix between a huge fruity hop blast with the balancing bitterness.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp and fruity mouthfeel. It's really drinkable.

This was pretty delightful.
