3.82/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Look: Opaque pale orange.
Smell: Melon, mostly, very light citrus, slight pine...maybe a little dirt?
Taste: Definite honeydew and cantaloupe, some hop burn, a bit of grapefruit, and yeah...a little dirt. 'Earthy', I guess would be the nice way to say it.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and heavy like a watermelon without the watermelon flavor. Light carbonation.
Overall: Perhaps I like Cashmere hops in a mix, I'm not sure that they're an 'only' hop. It's pretty good - not sorry I got it but I wouldn't get it again.

L: Had this beer on-tap at Growlers to Go - Short Pump, poured into a pint glass. Had a yellow / orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, pine, melon, malt, tropical fruit, and grass.

T: Tasted of a tinge of pine (just to make things interesting), a good shot of hops (not overdone, though), a little melon, some citrus fruit (tangerine, in particular), light malt notes (mostly in the finish), and a bit of tropical fruit (mango, especially). A focused and well-balanced flavor. Pretty tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth, dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A rock solid DIPA. Worth a try.

L: Pours a murky orange color with a finger and a half of head with some nice lacing left along the glass.
S: Citrus fruits; mango, pineapple, grapefruit with some grassy pine on the finish.
T: Similar to the nose, nice and juicy tropical fruits flavors with a nice lingering hop bitterness.
F: Medium light carbonation with a soft, creamy mouthfeel.
O: Nice easy drinking 8.5% IPA. One of, it not my first, beer brewed with cashmere. This is a hop I'll be looking for in the future.

Can dated 11/20/18. Not bad, looks like OJ. Smell was muted citrus, the taste was subtle fruit with lots of pine. Feel was soft and velvety. Overall it was a good drinking beer
