Amazing. Super hazy pour. Citrus from tops to tails. Bomb. I had the double dry hop version weeks ago, this is sweeter and more drinkable.

Pure hop juice, if you like hop aroma and abundant hop flavor than this is your beer. Get some.

Cheers

This checks all the boxes you want in an ipa. Has that nice NE cloudy appearance. Smells a little more subtle than expected but all the notes are there. Pineapple, mango, pine, a little earthiness. Taste explodes with pineapple, peach, pine, and some wheat cracker malt. Feels smooth and creamy. Great ipa that's surprisingly balanced for a tropical hop bomb.

Hazy, hazy, hazy. Looks like a creamsicle. Tried this for the first time yesterday. Nose is heavy mangoes and peaches and oranges. Taste is heavier on the peach and citrus - and is outstanding. Been waiting to try this for a while. Well worth the wait.
