Bottled 11 days ago.

Aroma: tangerine peel, mango, slightly catty. Sweet crusty malt aroma in the background. What is there is awesome but not huge. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Appearance: Gold to light amber. White rocky head that lingers for several minutes.

Taste: Balanced malt flavor, pretty neutral bitterness. Earthy hop profile with just a hint of citrus. No diacetyl, no DMS.

Mouthfeel: Super creamy, medium high carbonation.

Overall: Great beer, the best IPA out there, that isn't a double ipa. Still has the character that IPAs had 10 years ago and the reasonable 6.25% ABV. Not a bitter mess. Aroma is a bit more prominent when I've had it on tap.
