L: Pours a clear golden orange color with a large creamy tan head with nice rings of lacing all around the glass.

S: Some papaya, mango, orange, grapefruit and lemon, quite fruity mixed with a bit of caramel from the malt.

T: Lots of tropical fruit, papaya, mango, orange, mixed with some caramel and a light butterscotch and a medium bitterness. While it is fruity the fruit does seem slightly muted.

F: Creamy smooth with a bit of prickly carbonation.

O: While not a world class IPA, this is still a solid IPA.

12 oz. Bottle
Bottled: Dec 2016

Pours a pretty nice slightly cloudy dark golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malt notes, pretty nice citrus notes. The taste is hoppy, slightly malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA.

Nice appearance, honey, amber look to it
Lite hops aroma, stale malts (if that's possible)
bitter is the first thing that hits with this one, little sweetness with the hops but super bitter to me
think a one and done on this for the time being.
