This version of our signature American pale ale is dry hopped with the pungent Galaxy variety.

Upfront and resinous hop-derived flavors of grapefruit pith, peach, and mango are balanced with a subtle, bready malt character and mild, subdued bitterness.

Very good beer. The nose wasn't quite there. Would have liked a bit more body and a bit more flavor. Im just being picky. This is obviously a world class brew. Just splitting hairs here.

16oz can poured into speiglau glass. Canned on 05-MAY-17 09:01

Deep mango purée in color with a great tuft of foam atop. The scent of apricots, tangerines/clementines, and other bright citrus fruits burst out of the glass. The taste has a great pungent hop pang, bringing citrus fruits, peaches, pineapple, and melon rinds. Fine finish with a lingering bitter character. Exceptional brew.

Color: Classic Hazy Orange NE IPA
Smell: Very pleasant tropical aroma.
Taste: Little bitterness. I get more tropical flavors pineapple and mango flavors, not as much citrus.
Feel: Dry finish immediately stands out in this category and the strength of the carb accentuates the dryness at the end.
Overall: World Class IPA. The tropical nose is brilliant and matches flavors of the beer.
