16 oz can dated 2/25/2019

Hops: Citra, Galaxy

This is my favorite hop combo from one of my favorite IPA producers. Meets expectations, which means it's fucking great. Super fruity mango, sticky dank nugs, soft as hell. Christ.

Presentation: 16 oz. can with the caving dare bottom can shaped pint glass.

Appearance: The fluffy, two finger head stays around for a very long time and leaves behind a lot of patchy lacing. It's a murky, dull straw color.

Smell: A burst of tropical fruit aromas hit the nose right away. There's notes of orange peel, papaya, mango and and grapefruit.

Taste: Fruity and juicy with a lot of mango, pineapple, cantaloupe, papaya and orange. There's a soft, oily, hop resin bitterness towards the edges of the palate in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: It's thick, pillowy and moderately creamy with medium carbonation and a touch of crispness. There's no chalkiness whatsoever.  

Overall: An extremely hoppy and fruity beer that's very well made. It's easier to drink than the 8% ABV would suggest.

Hazy, deep gold/pale amber color; some clarity under thin white head; solid ring; soapy lacing. Skunky oniony nose; catty as liquid warms. Lemon, grapefruit, mango, papaya, kiwi; peach and green melon middle; not sweet but no bitterness. Medium full body; moderate minus carbonation; just the slightest hop burn on tip of tongue. Overall, tastes good and has a very (for me) approachable body; the aroma is not for me, but otherwise I could easily drink another 16oz can...

Confused it with my OJ this morning, just kept drinking this one instead. Smells terrific with just a hint of mild sweetness lingering on top of tangerine and green onion. Taste is much the same but the depth of the flavor is incredible. Tangerine goes until it meets up with just a hint of bread or something before it morphs over to oniony with a massive resiny bite. Serious bite and dry bitter finish. Very nice beer
