Bottle poured into an IPA glass. Bottled on 4/16, consumed on 4/24

A - Clear golden straw color with fairly active carbonation. Big 2 finger head. Very pretty beer.

S - I'm getting a lot of sweet dankness. Maybe hints of orange and tropical fruits. I'm thinking there is some malty sweetness mixed in there.

T - I can't really say what I'm getting here. It's a little muddled in the hop profile. Kind of dank. A little bit citric. NO malt. I dig it.

M - Prickly carbonation with a very mild bitterness. It lingers for a bit on the tongue. Light bodied and easy to drink.

O - Rock solid. Not amazing. But rock solid.

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.
