Good IPA looks, good thick honey color with a generous, soapy head. Surprisingly little aroma; some faint hoppy oily aromas of tangerines and citrus. Bitter, but not a buzzsaw. Mellow, lingering bitterness. Creamy feel, with smooth carbonation.

Draft, taster

A – Light to medium amber, very light khaki foam.

S – Caramel malt and mango, light guava, some other tropical fruit.

T – Again, caramel and bread dough. Hops are fruity but a lot more bitterness contributed here.

M – Moderate carbonation, mild sweetness, but bends hard toward hop bitterness. Pretty dry, bitter finish.

O – Would like a little more presence of hop flavor to balance everything. Not bad, but kind of blends in with the crowd.
