Look is very opaque yellow-orange. Moderate amount of very fine head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell has lots of sweet, acidic pineapple. There's also a good amount of lemongrass, along with a slight amount of pine, mostly needles.

Plenty of pineapple hangs around for the taste, but there's lots to compete with it. Moderate amount of bitter white grapefruit. Starfruit, too. It's also very mossy. The taste has much more malt than I'd have guessed from the nose, and that kinda drags the taste down because it doesn't play so well with the bitterness.

Weight is heavy for the type. The carbonation is well integrated. Vegetative aftertaste, which is so-so, and the alcohol could be better hidden, although it is a niner.

L: Poured from a growler to a snifter glass. Had a yellow-orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of creamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Fantastic lacing.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of dank hops, citrus fruit, pine, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a minor amount of malt (mostly in the finish; barely noticeable), a good amount of citrus fruit (grapefruit), a fair shot of dank hops (not too much, though), a bit of pine, and some tropical fruit (mango). A lively, sweet, and likable flavor. The dank hops are pretty pungent at first, but it settles down as you go. Quite tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth and creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Another well made IPA from Aslin. Drinkable.
