On tap at the brewery, Vancouver.
Glows yellow; fresh squeezed lemonade nose; tangerine, pineapple, apricot, slight mango, bits of dank; scratchy but round.

4.25 4.25 4 4 4.25

Starts Amarillo + Citra, ends Simcoe + Mosaic. All light + bright - tropical, but nothing luscious - then catty + weedy as it goes, but without any resin to end. Sugar Ray more than Tyson.

For what it promises, never really gets there.

Pale yellow body that's much closer to clear than I expected. Definitely some floaties in suspension, but the liquid itself is murky-clear. Nice puffy egg-white head. Eventually settles out, but decent lacing.

Nose is immediately bursting with bright sweet tropical fruits... pineapple in particular. There's some pine bitterness behind it.

A touch sweet for me, but not overwhelmingly so. Blended tropical fruits with a nice clean piney bitterness to balance. Pineapple and mango and almost like a banana smoothie (but not like banana esters... more just like a tropical smoothie that uses banana to thicken and make it creamy). Like I said, it finishes with that good piney bitterness to remind that yes indeed, this is an IPA, but it doesn't jump into bonkersville to try and compensate. I am repeatedly struck by just how... well made this feels. Like everything just clicks just right and fits in to where it gets in.

One of the softest smoothest bodied IPAs I've had. Just creamy smoothe easy to drink with appropriate carbonation and just enough of a linger bitter finish.

This is not the profile of IPA I usually enjoy. It feels like it's just this side of the NE style, which I really don't get into. But this is just so incredibly well made and is just really really a joy to drink. Incredibly pleasantly surprised, I'm a big big fan of this one and will subsequently seek out any Boombox brews I come across in the future.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Can: Poured a pale cloudy yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops notes with nice floral undertones. Taste is a nice mix of piney and citrusy floral undertones notes with hints of residual sugar, some residual yeast notes with light dry bitterness. Body is full with good carbonation. Enjoyable but lacking some balance.
