Huge thanks to ENovak for sending me this beer. Drank out of a Teku.

Look: light straw golden color with medium minus haze and a half a finger of rocky head.

Aroma: Big mango when I cracked the can but in the glass the greener flavors really come out. very herbal with lots of green onion in there as well. Maybe a little spruce. Also, some citrus pith.

Taste: Much juicer than the nose would suggest. Definitely some mangos and grapefruit but finishes with green onion on the back end. Can hardly detect any bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Nice medium to medium minus creaminess but it doesn't feel anything like a 7.2% beer. Super crushable.

Overall(Style Points): At 7.2% I would say this beer pushes the boundaries of single IPA . Nice and well balanced, definitely celebrates the greener qualities of IPA but without the resinous aftertaste that plagues so many west coast IPAs. 90.75 Points.

Acquired from CapCollector16, so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, piney hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering piney hops bitterness comes in. the malt character is on the lighter side for the style but provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice IPA to drink for a long time.

Big thanks to rob for always looking out and sharing the fresh ticks. I have been very impressed with so much of what hoof hearted has released and this also was a super juicy and very easy to drink ipa. one of the more juicy I have had.
