4.24/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 12oz can into a Spiegelau glass.

A- The beer is a nice golden color with an orange tint. It may be the clearest, most tranquil beer I have ever seen. Nice thick frothy head, which leaves some slight lacing.

S- Tropical fruit, mango, grassy, slight herbal.

T- Smooth sweet maltiness that transitions into that tropical mango fruit, followed by the grassy bitterness, then a nice herbal/flowery finish. Somewhat crisp.

M- Thin body with medium carbonation.

O- I had this on tap at the brewery, but thought it was just ok. After reading more hype about it, I decided to buy a six pack of cans. I am glad I gave it a second try. The can I had was great. The thin body and crispness added with the clean hops make it a very refreshing IPA. I will definitely be picking up more of this.

One of the better midwest IPAs that I have had that is not brewed in Minnesota. Wish I could have paired it with a bowl of Skyline chili.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz can poured into a can glass, canned 12/29/15

A- pours a clear deep golden color with a two-finger creamy and foamy white head that has good retention, sticking around long after the pour

S- up front has a bit of a vegetal & herbaceous aroma; leafy greens & cooking herbs. Beyond that, aromas of grass, floral hop, citrus & subtle toasted malt

T- juicy, slightly tangy citrus fruit up front with an emphasis on grapefruit peel, followed by vegetal notes that follow the nose, piney, floral and grassy hops kick in near the finish, with dry linger of more grass and toasted malt

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthful and a dry crisp finish

O- easy drinking ipa with a nice mix of hop flavors

This is a really solid ipa. Delicious floral and tropical hop flavors sustained and held nicely together by the malt backbone. Decent aroma upon opening of can as well.

12 oz. can, dated July 2015, into a snifter.

A: Clear but limited clarity in the gold-amber body. Moderate size but short lived head leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

Aroma - very fruity, with plenty of citrus, mainly orange. Suggests more tartness than sweetness. Good complexity.

Feel: Medium body and near medium carbonation. Crisp and dry.

Flavor: Some sweet malt; enough to leave this IPA with relatively low bitterness for style. The hoppy characteristics still dominate, with tropical fruit, herbal and evergreen notes.

Overall: Low bitterness but plenty of hops for an IPA.
