Notes: This hazy IPA features Mosaic, Cashmere, and El Dorado — notes of passion fruit, mango, and fresh squeezed orange juice abound, with an undercurrent of grapefruit pith. Medium-bodied with a super smooth mouthfeel.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left a thin collar around the edge and lots of specks of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honeydew melon are present in the nose along with notes of mango.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of passion fruit. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied, smooth and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the smooth mouthfeel of this IPA to be pleasant and enjoyable.

Light golden orange, 1" fluffy head, good lacing, lots of visible carb. Fresh mango, passionfruit, bread dough, light resin and diesel on the nose. Taste doesn't have that big fruit character but instead is moderately bitter and dry with light notes of resin, menthol, weed, and dried mango. Mouthfeel slick and on the full side, light carbonation, dry. Would have preferred the bitterness dialed up just a bit, but otherwise solid.

A- Pours from the 16oz can into a becher glass with a slightly hazy, very pale yellow body. A crown forms quickly on the beer to an inch high with a thick and creamy texture. Great head retention. Lacing begins spotty and not all that much forms.

S- Interesting aroma as it doesn't really bombard you with fruity hops but has a balance of dank, catty, berry, floral, herbal and fruity hops. Gooseberry, strawberry, lime, soft citrus, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit, apricot and pineapple. Tiny hint of grains and sweetness. Overall aroma has a medium-light strength for the style.

T- Pretty similar to the aroma for the most part with a varied hop profile that doesn't just rely on the juice. Pineapple, lime, grapefruit, berries, grapes, orange, tangerine and floral notes. A light grainy flavor in the backdrop and on the drier side.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. The beer is bitter and fairly dry with a slightly foamy-frothy texture.

I like the varied hop profile and how it isn't really that sweet but I find it lacks a signature flavor to really work around.
