16oz can poured into snifter

A- pours a murky bright yellow color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- tropical hop aroma with notes of mango and pineapple, a bit of pine. Slightly malty

T- bright tropical fruity hops up front; pineapple and mango leading the way, along with passionfruit, melon, grass & a hint of fresh mint. Mid-palate is slightly malty, then finishes with a hit of juicy citrus, lingers of more tropical fruit

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp semi-dry finish

O- considering this is less than 6% abs, this is absolutely loaded with tropical hops, while remaining remarkably drinkable

16 oz. can. Hazy murky bright orange. Smells of mango and passionfruit hops. Tastes of more mango and tropical fruit with pale malt sweetness. Some orange. Dries out with a hint of pithy bitterness. Medium heavy. Good, but very big.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 07/10/17

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a very nice cloudy yellowish color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (oranges, tangerine, grapefruit). some diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with some nice citrus complex (oranges, tangerine, grapefruit), some diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Addictive! Glad to have gotten a chance to try it.

If this were a circa 9% DIPA, I'd probably only be in the 4.25 ABV range. However, as a single IPA at modest ABV, this one is truely remarkable. It is punching well above its weight class

Can dated 7/10/17 poured into a stemmed tulip. Look is murky yellow with a tint of orange small white head leaving small spotted lacing behind. Smell is straight mango and orange with some oats and biscuit malt! The taste follows the nose in the same order. The feel is medium, slick, with a nice hop bite in the back. Overall I dig it and am surprised by the mixed reviews!
