ive been seeing this one around for awhile now and it was time to finally get into it. it is what i claims to be, extremely juicy, and its quite a nice beer, dry hopped to high heaven but still light to drink as they go, and really without any of the overly dry hopped greenness or bite so many of them have, lighter and more refined than average for sure, but also somehow still very intensely hoppy. id love to know what the varietals are, but i get a coconut and berry layer behind more familiar notes of juicy cantaloupe, green pear, white grape, peach, and lemongrass, its summery to me, almost exclusively so, like it would seem out of place in colder weather, especially with such a light malt profile and body, its got some haze but its clean to drink on and brightly carbonated so it goes down real easy. some oiliness in the feel, a little weedy danky funk about it, tons of fruitiness from the hops, and a pretty quick finish overall. this is one of their more popular beers from a reason, and while i have pretty much dug all the hoppy ones, this is a step above. excellent and modern ipa here, maybe even among the best hoppy beers made in the boise area!

Grunt fill from Winco. Medium golden, light haze, small white foamy head. Malty, bready aroma, light fruit notes. Taste also is malt forward, crackers and biscuits. Some grapefruit, very light. More APA than IPA. Dry finish.

I had this beer on-tap in a nonic at the brewery.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze and a finger of frothy white foam. I like a little more haze in the style.

Smell: sweet with a tropical fruit element; think mango and papaya. Not bad, if a tad cloying.

Taste: like the aroma, it's quite sweet, but as the style is supposed to taste like tropical fruit juice, I think it quite works.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a moderate carbonation and decent creaminess for the style.

Overall: not a bad NE IPA, but it could use more haze and maybe a dash less sweetness.

32 oz growler- Pours slightly hazy with a medium white head with decent retention and layered lace. Aroma is spicy hops, piney, tropical fruitiness. The taste is resinous hops, pine and tropical fruity notes. Medium level bitterness, easy drinking, enjoying it.

On tap at the brewpub in Boise.
Betty slightly hazy pale amber body with a bubbly head and some sticky lacing.
The aroma is moderately strong with, as the name suggests, fruity aspects.
The flavor follows.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

This beer is surprisingly good. It really is So Juicy on the pallet. Lots of peach notes and some orange. Not bitter at all. Really like this beer and would drink again. This is a very nice IPA.

On tap @ Bittercreek Alehouse Boise ID.

A: Fairly hazy light yellow/gold with nice head lacing.

S: Nice fruitiness, peach maybe? Lots of suggestions of stone fruit with an underlying dankness...faint herbaceous hoppyness and astringent character.

T: Lighter/moderate bitterness lets the hop flavor shine, and yeah, it is a bit 'Juicy'...peach and apricot and pineapple, light bready malts underneath, light sweetness.

MF: Light dryness on the finish, body has a creamier velvety feel with fair carbonation, but still a light body and what you would hope for in a sessionable IPA.

O: This is a good beer, one of the best I've had from Woodland, and would recommend to hop-lovers looking for light, fruity IPA's without the enamel-stripping bitterness.
