Poured from bottle to tulip glass. Copper color liquid with a finger of off white bubbly head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind, honey, biscuit. Flavors of papaya, mango, grapefruit, orange zest, biscuit, caramel, honey. Excellent balance for giant flavors.

A foggy, dark amber beer puts up two inches of creamy orange sherbert head that is long lived. Thick rings of lace are left behind as the head slowly recedes to a thick blanket. No internal carbonation is visible in the Spiegle IIPA glass.

The aroma is simple with strong herbal hops. Warmth brings out grassy aromas.

Bitterness is up front but subdued when measured against the style. Grass flavors are strong and in equal parts with pine resin.This IPA lacks juicy, fruit qualities. Warmth brings out caramel and grain. The finish is lingering with moderately strong bitterness.

A smooth silky medium body is lifted by fluffy carbonation. Alcohol is controlled as is slight chewiness.

Chillwave is an enjoyable moderate IIPA which would stand up to casual conversation after work. While there is nothing special about this beer it is quietly satisfying.

Pineapple and tropical fruits are prominent, with a light background of sweet malt aroma and alcohol. The flavor packs a solid bitter hit. The brew has a solid medium body and comes off as being moderately dry, which is surprising considering the alcohol content. Solid brew, but left me wanting a little more.
