Notes: The nose is bright and tropical leading to aromas of starfruit and fresh citrus. The palate is full and presents as a hop smoothie with notes of honeydew, cantaloupe, and mango brought fourth by the Citra and Enigma hops. The beer finishes clean with a very subtle bittering to balance all of the fruit character.

my first beer from these guys, so good it immediately sold me my second beer from these guys. the hops on this hazy beauty are stunning in both aroma and flavor, and while the citra contribution should be obvious to anyone who has had an ipa in the last five years, the enigma contribution is a little less familiar, and really is cool in here. strong melon notes, little green french melons and slightly under ripe honeydew, killer with the lemongrass and soft lemon zest of the citra, a perfect match really, and a beer this drinks a lot easier than most of its peers, with no bitterness at all and a really pillowy texture. dry on the malt side, fluffy feeling with some wheat likely, but no sweetness or heaviness from the grain at all, hazy as this one looks from the can. a little bit of sediment in the mix, but the bright yellow color and the lace white head show nice refinement visually. there is great smoothness to this, and the fruitiness of the hops is there as strong in the flavor as in the aroma, tons of melon, peach, papaya, guava, and citrus. id love to have this beer without the citra, just to see the enigma on its own, but the combination is really special too, citra always works so well in this type of context. great recipe, nice execution, delicious introduction to this brewery!

Can't speak too much on the pour, since I used a plastic starwars cup. Dont judge me.
solid off-white head, Bright Citrus aroma, very smooth drinker. Tons of fruit juice , and not much of that hoppy bite .
Scarily easy drinker.
