Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on July 6, 2019. Hopped with El Dorado. Fruit forward with very little bitterness. If mama ain't happy, nobodies happy.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present, but I know this beer is relatively fresh as it just appeared at my local beer store last week. Another new IPA creation from Only Child Brewing, listed on the bottle as an India Pale Ale, so not sure why BeerAdvocate lists it as a Belgian IPA. Either way, I've been impressed with Only Child so far, so my expectations are good.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a lightly cloudy, juicy orange colored body with about a finger of soapy white head. Leaves behind some good scattered lacing. Looks very juicy and delicious. 4

S - The aroma is very fresh, tropical, fruity, & floral. Again, very fresh and appealing. Tons of big juicy orange, mango, pineapple, florals, and some bready earthy yeast presence. Lightly soapy. Very appealing aroma. 4

T - The taste follows the nose - juicy orange, mango, pinapple, lemongrass, pine. Very juicy, herbal, floral, and tropical. The freshness and the quality of the ingredients definitely shows. 4

M - The feel is smooth & juicy. Medium-light bodied with excellent carbonation. Super smooth and easy-drinking for the moderate 7.00% abv.

Overall, another excellent beer in an ever-growing line-up of excellent beers from Only Child Brewing; these guys continue to impress me. This beer rivals some of the big bad fresh DIPA's I have had from Pipeworks in terms of flavor and freshness. Keep up the good work, guys.
