4.16/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From a pint can in a tulip glass.

Opaque dark wheat colored brew with a clean and dense white cap that retains well and leaves good lacing.

Mix of hops brings a mix of aromas. Citrus and stone fruits, tropical, too. Baked wheat and oat malt-i-ness.

Orange and grapefruit, mango and apricot. Pale malts bring a slight sweetness.

Juicy, bitter, medium bodied. Oats boost the feel. The touch of sweet in the flavors gives way to a dry finish.

Nicely drinkable and not overly juiced.

4.35/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: It pours totally opaque with a 2-inch head made up of bubbles of unequal size. Nonetheless, the head retention is above average.

Nose: Satsuma, ripe citrus, and very juicy indeed.

Taste: Very nicely balanced upfront but the bitterness outlasts the sweet flavors and lingers.

Mouthfeel: Thick and tongue coating with low carbonation levels. Very pleasant.

This is overall a great beer, both complex and easy to drink at the same time.

Many thanks for this beer to brentk56.

4.28/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a milky murky medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate apricot + pale golden yellow + pale yellow + pale orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy creamy foamy pale beige head that slowly reduces to a medium sized finger thick cap in the center surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango + citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + stone fruit/apricot hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + wheat + oat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness.

T: Upfront here are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + wheat + oat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango + citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + stone fruit/apricot hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving moderate lingering citrus hop flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a light to moderate amount of creamy soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly creamy soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Enjoyable with citrus and tropical hop flavors + aromas. I could easily have another of these.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 5, 2018. Brewed with Centennial, Citra and Mosaic hops, pale malt and flaked wheat. Juicy and smooth.

Can - 7/21 release

Murky orange with a bubbly head that sticks well. Hoppy Citra-heavy nose...creamy mango and a colorful array of citrus fruit. Smooth mango, orange juice, apricot, and lime flavors. Slick, fluffy feel with a quick finish. Really, really nice - super drinkable stuff.
