Wow. Where do I start? I’m not into ipa’s at all and I saw this on social media. Being as how I liked juice Willis I knew I had to try it. Nice mild hop to start, nice fruit flavor and finishes very smooth. This beer has changed my outlook on ipa’s for sure. Grab some if you see it in your bottle shop or total wine!

A: Pours a clear pale to medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass with faint medium golden yellow + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, tropical/melon, and dank resinous hops with a light aroma of strawberry hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of caramel + biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of honey-like sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a just shy of moderate flavor of caramel + biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of honey-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, tropical/melon, and dank resinous hops with a light flavor of strawberry hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a short amount of time leaving behind a tropical fruit hop flavor lingering.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and really nice combinations of hop flavors + aromas. Enjoyable and I would certainly have this one again.
