16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Faint haze on this pale golden hued brew, lacing puts on a great showing of rings down the glass after each sip. Smells of ripe tropical fruit, mildly dank, and faint melon rind. Lots of zest and resin on the palate, mild tropical fruit and citrus rind in the middle, finishes with more fruit resin. Quite warming for a 6.7% ABV brew, crisp and pretty dry with some crackery maltiness. A well made IPA, love the clarity and aggressive hop character.

Pours into an imperial pint glass a dull medium golden with a half finger white head that settles pretty quickly into a soapy-like mass.Tangerine and orange hop aromas jump out with some sweet biscuit malts also showing thru,light grassiness is detected as well.Tropical fruits on the palate with a grapefruit rind sharpness as well,quite a hefty mildly sweet biscuit malt base is there thru the finish.It's good but it's flavor profile is becoming the mainstream right now in the ipa craft world...in my opinion.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden honey orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + pale golden yellow colored highlights The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of slightly mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, citrus/grapefruit rind, citrus/orange zest, tropical/melon, and dank resinous hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + bready + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + bready + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, citrus/grapefruit rind, citrus/orange zest, tropical/melon, and dank resinous hops that impart a light to moderate amount of aggressive bitterness which lingers slightly in the finish leaving dank resinous hop flavors behind.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a light to moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Enjoyable with an aggressive bitterness for an NEIPA and a fairly common hop profile. Easy to drink with reasonably well hidden alcohol.

Appearance - pours semi transparent golden color with nice white fluffy head that last a good bit. Sticky spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Light tropical fruit mango, orange and a touch of grapefruit. There also seems to be a very light malt sweetness as well.

Taste - Seems to be mostly a balance between grapefruit orange peel and bitter hops. The orange and grapefruit are up front and the hops are more toward the end. Well balanced nice taste.

Feel - Medium bodied prickly carbonation, dry bitter finish.

Overall - A well done IPA the fruit plays a part in the aroma but the hops stand out in the taste.
