Notes / Commercial Description:
t’s the season for fresh hops and as the 4th edition of our IPA project, our brewers knew they needed to find a mix that would deliver on an assaulting-ly juicy, dank aroma, and taste. We added hops everywhere but the boil in this hazy, yellow brew. Breathe it all in as floral, fruity, pineapple from the Hallertau Blanc, earthy, blueberry, blossoms from the Mosaic, and citrus, gooseberry, lychee from the Citra transport you to warmer longer days of summer past.

This review is from notes.

Pours a hazy radiating gold with a thick, rocky head that lasts a good inch the entire glass. Huge amounts of foam drape the glass on the way down. Giant citrusy, tropical, grassy and dank aroma - definitely a hop bomb. Confirmation slaps me upside the palette on the first sip. Orange, passionfruit, grapefruit, mango grapefruit, blueberry flavors all abound in the onslaught. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sublime, creamy carbonation. Delicate leafy, citrusy hops and a moderate but never ending bitterness in the finish.

A benchmark IPA to add to the stable of benchmark IPAs by this kick ass brewery. Seek this out.

Tall can.... February something stamped on the bottom, so not the most fresh sample.

Great looking overly hazed poor, leaving nice looking fine ringed a nd scattered lacing.

Complex sniff, with sweet tropical fruits shining through.

Simply delicious, ripe tropical fruit abounding and astounding....slightly sweet...highly enjoyable and worthy....go get some

The second IPA I've had from this brewery. Light golden color. Citrus aroma. Orange flavor with a heavy grapefruit finish. A nice tart refreshing finish. Would go well with some Tin Bits.

Can dated 2/15:
A nice, yellow hazy offering with some orange-peach mixed in. The head is a nice white, sticky foam that adheres to the surface and glass as I type up this review.

Nose isn't swaying me either way - as it isn't too strong initially. There is an ever so light fruit tartness, a grape leave vegetal/peppery note. A bit of grapefruit and tangerine starts to sneak through with warmth - clarifying that random "tartness" from before. Little melon as well.

The taste isn't bursting with flavors, but what it offers is a more detailed picture of what I got in the nose, and is quite tasty. A little malty-leaning opening is countered by a nice prickly carbonation. This gives the citrus and wine grape flavors time to establish themselves. Medium light in heft, the grape leave "green peppery" note provides the bitter balance when the carbonation fades. This pop of sweet-countering carbonation with a dry bitter back end is quite enjoyable.

From sip one, I basically enjoyed this beer. It didn't transport me to greatness, but it said, "I'm here for you to enjoy, take me for what I am." I am happy with what it is, and will be happy to sit with it another few times (and maybe a few more if I grab another 4-pack).

From a 3-week-old 16 oz can, pours a bright yellow-orange with 2 fingers of white foam. Hazy but not quite opaque. Smell has citrus, tropical fruits, berries and piney dank. Taste follows with tremendous complexity of hop flavors. Decently bitter. Feel is light but not watery. Exceptionally good beer.

Cloudy dark straw color with a yeast veil and no activity. Creamy and rocky light beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with moderate legs but good swirl reaction. Flavors of pineapples, orange, caramel, sweet grains, wheat, floral and herbal hops. Slick and soft creamy medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium strength finish, a bit tropical with shy hops. Not much of and IPA, more like a tropical pale ale. Freshness is alright but feels a bit dull and under intensified. Overall good quality craft, but for an IPA it's above average.
