Not a fan of the Mosaic hop, and it's flavor comes forward in this beer. Other than that, it's a very well made West Coast IPA. Good solid head, Not too bitter.

Poured into a traditional beer mug a nice frothy head is created ... Nice golden color and citrusy nose ... Easy drinking, sufficiently hoppy and quite delicious ... My approval is granted!

Poured from 12-ounce can into a tulip glass. Canning date 11/20/20. Clear, golden colored body, with a good two fingers of snow-white head. Great retention, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma and flavor profiles are loaded with juicy tropical fruit notes, with undertones of light caramel. Medium bodied, with a pleasing mouthfeel and a ton of citrus-rind bitterness (68 IBU) that lingers all the way through the finish and beyond. This sample was part of a givethembeer.com gift basket, a curated and surprisingly fresh collection of craft beers. Certainly can't complain about this well-crafted gem!

A cloudy pale straw with not much of a scent, but poured from an old can. Robusty flavored, spicy, earthy with a bit of fruityness. Still nice and hoppy as well. I would love to try it fresh!

Many thanks to Ocalafox for this can.

A - Pours a hazy medium gold color with thick creamy white lacing and light, but steady carbonation.

S - Faint Citrus, pineapple, and tangerine on the nose.

T - Citrus, pineapple, and light tangerine along with some peppery spice. Finishes on the hoppier fruity side.

M - Big medium body that finishes dry on the back of the tongue, eventually coating the mouth and leaving a somewhat cotton-like grit texture from the hops.

O - This is a really solid IPA that I've never heard of before. Thanks, Van!

Poured a golden orange body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is a refreshing citric, pineapple and tropical fruit smell that is light on the nose. A dryer, smooth, light, citric and slightly floral/earthy beer with a modicum of tropical fruit sweetness to add some balance on this dryer beer. Still sessionable and easy to drink and worth trying.
