Ok, so it pours a nearly crystal clear burnished gold color. Nice thick sudsy white head collapses steadily leaving just a thin layer of foam on top of the beer and lots of sticky lacing.

Aroma has notes of peach, mango, cantaloupe, with a fresh green hop aroma. Really bright and fresh - its one of those beers you kind of get list just smelling it.

Taste essentially follows the nose with some light fruity notes up front giving way to a grassy hop flavor toward the back end. Mild bitterness is present with a light neutral malt backbone allowing the hops to shine through.

Feel is light, crisp and easy drinking. Bright carbonation.

This is a lovely wet hop IPA.

16oz can (7/22/20) poured into 14oz teku. Poured a clean, clear medium gold color with 2/3 inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

Nice hop (HBC_586 & Cashmere) aroma at the front, with some gentle malt in the background.

Pretty similar on the tongue, hop forward for sure, but still decently balanced.

The body was a touch on the fuller side of medium, but still smooth with a clean finish.

Drinkability was very good, draining a couple cans back to back was no problem.

Overall, a very nice brew, get some if you can.
