Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

Perfect! I found this gem at my local distributor. It was a new brew for my area, so I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. It's everything I want in an IPA. Decent ABV, great citrus taste, no weird aftertaste. The logo and design is even cool. I will buy this brew again and I highly recommend to any IPA fan.

L- pours orange with white lacing. Not transparent but not too hazy either.
S- aroma is faint citrus fruit.
T- upfront there are notes of grapefruit, orange, faint mango. That gives way to malt and hoppy bitterness. The finish is way too dry for my taste.
F- decent mouthfeel, not too watery.
O- this is good but not great. It is also an example where freshness makes a big difference. I’ve had this beer only a few days old on draft and it is pleasant. The citrus and fruit comes through and helps balance the taste. But out of a can a few months old the fruit flavors are muted and the less pleasant aspects of the beer dominate to the point where it isn’t worth drinking unless there are no other good options.

tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish

Poured a seethru orange body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is citric with some grapefruit and minimal hop bitterness. Light and crisp, a somewhat bitter juicy hop presence of citric and grapefruit is noticeable and the beer has a crisp, dry finish. Balanced IPA that combines sweetness and mild hoppiness for a light and enjoyable beer.

Out of a 12oz can, dated 8/10/18. Slight hoppy nose at beginning. Great lacing, cloudy dark orange color. Taste is a little acrid and bitter, but not disagreeably so. Balanced well enough to be drinkable.

12oz can. 8/24/18 can date. Appearance: Dark golden and mostly clear. Quite a bit of coagulated protein floating. Fluffy white headcwith nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy, slightly spicy hop aroma. A touch of roasted bread as well.
Taste: Caramel and toasted bread crust maltiness dominate upfront. Slight grapefruit hop character that builds to a strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: strong lingering bitterness and bread crust maltiness
Overall: Decent take on the more traditional american IPA, with a bigger malt backbone to balance the aggressive bitterness. Has the caramel and bread crust maltiness typical of the original AIPA style. Hop aroma is relatively restrained, leaning towards a traditional citrus/grapefruit as opposed to common tropical fruit aromas found these days. Has a heavier body as well

God help me I had this on tap at Applebee’s. Solid APA. Pours medium dark. Tasty. Finishes medium, neither bitter nor floral.
