Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 13, 2019. West coast style India Pale Ale brewed with Mosaic, Centennial and Simcoe. Very good.

Pours a semi clear light orange with thick, fluffy head.

Smell is fruity with notes of grapefruit, pine, peach and tea.

Taste is fruity and quite florql with notes of citrus, pine, peach, tea and rose water. Moderate bitterness, and a clean, drying finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy, with good carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA, balanced but with some bite.

16oz can, "PKG 10/8/19 THE BONES R THEIR DOLLARS". Brilliant, bright; and hazy tangerine colored ale with a foamy off-white head. Super juicy aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, and berry. Bold hop flavors that are similar to aroma: piney mango, tangy tangerine & lemon zest, and berry. Medium body, very resinous, semi-dry finish with plenty of citric & pine bitterness on the finish. A very delicious hazy IPA.

Pours a murky golden color. 1 1/2 finger white head. Head retention is good. Some lacing on the glass.
The nose is has a nice hop aroma to it. Citrus, mango, pineapple, and other aromas.
Taste - The hop citrus is mellow up front, but kicks in more on the backside.
Hops linger in my throat a bit.
A decent IPA from Hop Butcher.

This beer was a nice combination of Mosaic, Centennial & Simcoe hops. It was a little lighter than most of Hop Butchers offerings. Berries were definitely in play here along with some pine. Some nice bitterness in there too.

Canned 10/8/19; drank 10/12/19 @ the Yarchives.

Semi-opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice bright white head; strong, frothy tree-rung lace.

Pineapple, cane sugar, mild pine & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel. Pineapple, table sugar, pine & dry grass flavors.

The nose beats the flavor, but this was mildly enjoyable.
