Tan haze; greasy pineapple rind + lemon oil; whack of Weetina, then melon, lime, pineapple, tangelo, + big grass; salty with some aspirin.

Citra, Galaxy, Chinook

8 weeks in the can. Got both that powdery Cali hop citrus + some Galaxy fruit. Solid IBUs, too, per the title. Over dry hopped, though, a bit compote-y, and some socks, too - basically, too many hops in a tight space.

Pours a deep golden amber coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of light caramel malt and citrus/tropical hops, with notes of grapefruit, tangerine and pineapple, a certain floral note and just the merest hint of pine. Taste follows the nose, with a good balance of caramel malt and citrus/tropical hops. Notes of zesty orange rind, grapefruit, tangerine and pineapple, light resin and just a hint of pine. Also has a certain floral note to it that seems somewhat out of place. Finishes with a medium bitterness and a little more resin/pine coming through in the aftertaste. Slightly thin mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. This has a good balance of slightly sweet caramel malt and zesty orange/tangerine going for it, but not enough pine/resin and bitterness for a proper WCIPA in my opinion. A little light bodied as well, but not too bad. Has that floral, slightly synthetic tasting orange tic tac note to it that I'm starting to associate with Galaxy hops and am really not a fan of, to be honest.
