Very fruity nose and taste. For under 5%ABV, this has a balanced feel between the hops and the rest of the beer. Poured out of a crowler fresh from the brewery, a very nice looking beer.

If you like Nelson Sauvin hops (TG Zeelander, etc), then you'll definitely dig this bad boy. Really easy to drink.

Very grassy IPA. Consistent flavor. Easy to drink. A good session IPA. I dig it.

32 oz. crowler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dull hazy orange body. Medium white head. Nice lacing and surface wisping.

Smell - Has that New Zealand hop combination of herbal tones and tropical fruit. A little grainy.

Taste - The hop flavor splits into two parts. Delicate tropical fruit flavor right up front. Toasty malt right behind it before the herbal flavors kick in. Very mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light and drinkable. Well carbonated.

Overall - Unique pale ale. I wouldn't call it a hop bomb, as it is advertised, but it has a very nice hop profile.
