Very Good

Notes: Our drier, decidedly “tropical” IPA that’s light on bitterness, but heavy on hop aroma, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops. One whiff and you get super intense notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine.

4.39/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Canned 2/4/19
L: Hazy yellow in color. A finger of head with mild lacing.
S: Grass upfront, with healthy amounts of lemon, tangerine and pine.
T: Follows the nose. Grass flavor prominent throughout. Fruit flavors of lemon, pineapple, grapefruit and tangerine all present. Finish is rather hoppy with lingering grass/pine complexity. Really enjoyable.
F: Light in body and in weight. Really nice feel and smooth to drink. Moderate carbonation for the style.
O: At 6.8 abv, what is not to like. Packed with flavor and allows you to be productive. This is great, and I would drink again. I am super glad to have tried. Cheers!

Can poured into an Alvarado Street Brewery glass

A: Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer that hangs around and leaves some dense lacing.

S: Vibrant tropical fruit, zesty citrus, floral, biscuity malt, and caramel honey sweetness.

T: Zesty citrus, lemon and a touch of tangerine, big tropical fruit, guava, papaya, soft passion fruit, and lychee, floral notes, a hint of bubble gum, biscuity bready malt, and caramel honey sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat soft on the palate.

O: It's been a little while since I've had the standard version, but this feels a little softer. Good stuff!
