Deep peach mango coloring, classic good looking, rocky head. Citra, mango, sweet malts, bright aroma. Taste is just like the aroma with flavors a little subdued. Not overpowering but not mild at all. Getting a little peppercorn along with the citra mango notes. Ends with a mild hop bitterness. Smooth body and right carb. Quite sessionable for 7%, great summer beer.

Classic golden hue, lively carbonation, head is a little washy & thin. Aroma is all earthy hops - hop pellets, hop cone, musty hop dust - without any other notes to add depth or shading. Taste is starts out with more of that musty chalk, the use of the hops is fairly astringent & dry, grassy / herbal, bitter rind flavors (grapefruit, melon). Pretty one-note, and disappointing given its reputation.

12oz bottle received via a box from WesMantooth. Dated September 11, 2017.

Poured into a Fat Head nonic pint glass from the same box. Chill-hazed copper amber color, with a good-sized, off-white head. Lots of lace.

Very hoppy nose. I get grapefruit, mangoes, herbs and human sweat.

Hoppy in the taste as well. Sweet hoppiness in the lead, but with bitter, herbal and piney notes as well. More substantial malty backbone present than was foretold in the aroma, but it remains the hops' show.

Medium bodied, with a mouthfeel both creamy and resiny.

I get the hype. This leaps to pole position for Midwest IIPAs I have known. I would happily hit this again if available locally. Thanks, Corey!
