Pours a hazy, amber orange color with a fluffy, couple finger thick white head. Smell is floral notes, some citrus, and a hint of pine. Some small notes of mango, herbal hints, a little malt backbone, and some grass. Body is a little heavy, moderate carbonation, dry finish. It's nice, feels a little uneven but not terribly so. Solid enough.

12 ounce bottle with a bottling date of Sept. 2017.

Appearance: Pours with a hazy amber body with a semi-durable white head. Ample sticky lacing gets left on the glass.

Aroma: Fruity and floralt notes.

Flavor: Low bitterness for style. The hops create a nice mix of floral, herbal, grassy and fruity notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, soft finish.

Pretty good beer, overall. The pour is a hazy golden color with a smell that is a delicious balance of pine and some citrus. The taste is incredibly similar to the smell, but with a resinous punch.

Grassy, mildly fruity, twinge of citrus, bubbly, crisp, nothing especially remarkable but another decently good beer from Brothers.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a thick, cloudy consistency. There was a massive, foamy / creamy, extremely long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A decent aroma of hops, light fruit, malt, and a pine element.

T: Tasted of a surprising amount of light fruit (mango, in particular), some light malt notes, a bit pine mixed in, a fair amount of grassy hops (not overly so. a bready quality. A bit grassier than it should be, this is a solid flavor. Quite lively and surprisingly powerful, in spite of its flaws.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a mostly dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An interesting, if somewhat uneven IPA. Worth trying and drinkable.
