Very smooth and drinkable. If you don't want to be overpowered by any one thing or the other (bitterness or fruitiness, etc.), this is the one. Perfect for hot weather, like in Austin, Texas at 5:10 pm on a Labor Day weekend, 2019 at 98 degrees and 32% humidity.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow glass hold a quarter finger of bright white foam. The head is a little smaller than expected for an IPA, but it's a solid cover.

Aroma: Tropical fruit indeed, pineapple, grapefruit, lime, some fresh cut grass, lots of hop driven smells.

Taste: Fruity hop notes are well supported and don't go crazy bitter. A slight white bread yeast and cracker base are clean and a bit grainy. The hops go a bit tea like as it warms with a mild earthy note.

Mouthfeel: Medium light, almost light body is throwing me off. Medium carbonation comes across as fizzy given the light body. Oily texture in the finish.

Overall: I've never had a beer suffer so much in mouthfeel, it's odd. At first I thought the taste was underwhelming, but that's actually fine, it just feels light and unsubstantial. I want some heft in my IPAs. What malt is here is well used, perhaps over-attenuated? A rare issue and has to make the bottom line look nice. With the flavor being a big gorilla the total package comes across as a winner.

Picked up a sixer at my HEB in Round Rock. Golden amber pour and a decent head with some lacing that sticks around. Scent is fresh tropical fruit and pine, a bit light but there.

Taste follows. Refreshing, light tropical flavor and a hint of pine. Malty backbone on the finish and very drinkable.

Nice job on this one 3 Nations. Drinks easy for a 6.9.

Pours a mostly clear darker amber color with off-white head. Light fruits, mango, pineapple, citrus, and a little pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more light fruit, not overly bitter, more fruity than anything.

L-Pours a see through golden in color beer with a lacy head and a bubble filled body.
S-Light mango, sweet hop, and some grassy hop. Tropical aromas come through as well. A bit of booze at the end.
T-Light, bitter, almost tart, fruity, mango is there. Nothing crazy, highly drinkable. I respect how easy it is to drink.
F-Light bodied.
O-Highly drinkable. Nothing crazy, though. It has a light mango flavor and some bitter and grassy hop. Easy drinking IPA for a summer day by the pool.
