I was skeptical at first when someone told me to try it. Now, I'm glad they did. It is way better than I thought it would be. The taste was what surprised me the most. It wasn't too hoppy and the aftertaste was pleasant. I will definitely recommend this IPA to anyone.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass leaving specs behind.

S- Bright citrus notes of tangerine, orange and grapefruit. Tangy and vibrant.

T- Flavor is a bit more malt forward than the aroma with some sweet cereal grain coming through. The hop bitterness sinks into the palate and lingers a bit. Alcohol is decently hidden as grassy notes start to appear.

M- Quite sharp and oily from the hops. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- A good IPA that's got some punch to it but also doesn't skimp on the tropical fruit notes.
