A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an orange/golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of oranges, mango. Taste is oranges, malts, light mango, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but I expect more from this brewer.

Another fruit infused ipa. Another Simcoe (and other from Troegs). A little different.

It pours a very pretty dirty yellow with nice fine fizz. The aroma is slightly sweet and fruity, fresh and hoppy. The taste is bitter and slightly tart. A bitter taste and aftertaste extend the experience consistently.

Recommended.

6 pack of bottles was on the shelf for the now-reasonable seeming price of 10.99, and it had been a while since I had an IPa so I figured what the heck.

Pours dark amber, medium hazy with very little head.

Smells fruity and smooth with a fine kick of simcoe on the back end. Modest and easy but there's still plenty going on here.

Tastes like it smells: smooth mango juice up front, a citrusy middle, and then a slight bitter tang at the end, with fruit and some mild alpha acids lingering on the finish. I hear people saying they detest IPAs because of their extreme bitterness and I just wonder why no one tries to turn them on to something like this (although why bother--they'd most likely hate it out of principle).

This is a good beer. But not a great beer. And, like most other good beers in the year two thousand and eighteen, I hesitate to purchase it because it costs so fucking much.

This was a Troeg's offering I had not seen before. It starts a bit nondescript, with a muddled malt and fruit melange, with late breaking hps that clash more than they accentuate. Texture is also a bit watery. Not my favorite from the Troeg's stable.
