Pours an opaque yellow on the cusp of orange, with a foamy white head that has exceptional lacing, despite it's surface recession.

Mango, citrus zest, and lime lead the progression into a mild candy like sugar and finally some hints of pine.

The flavor seems a tad muted, but still has a tropical fruit presence. Very rind or pithy like, with an earthy finish consisting of said pine.

Surprisingly, this is not as creamy as I was expecting. It's still smooth and rich, but seems to have a bold amount of carbonation that tingles and ultimately leads to a dry finish. A hefty bitterness does come through, and even cuts the abv slightly.

This may not be my favorite from GN, but it's still a damn good brew. Cheers!

Crowler from the source, pours a hazy (not crazy flour milkshake turbid) straw color. Vibrant tropical aroma with juicy pineapple mango flavor and a nice medium body. Smooth backend, nice balance, probably my favorite IPA from GN to date...
