Had the nitro version and it was super! Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Plenty of malt to stand up to the fresh hops. The nitro enhanced the body. Hope I get to try it again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brilliant golden with a slight chill haze under a thin foamy sticky white cap. Lovely hop aroma featuring loads of sticky tropical tones like mango and melon/pine/floral resins. Crisp and dry flavor with a bitter grassy/piney/leafy flavor that loses all of the tropical nuance of the aroma and just becomes a standard american IPA with predictable piney bitterness and a dry pale malt body.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Tropical fruit aroma with mango, pineapple and some pine resiny notes. Pours golden colored with a decent white head with good retention and no lacing. Starts with juicy tropical fruit flavors with mango and pineapple notes. Finishes dry but smooth especially for an IPA with a touch of pine resiny bitterness. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is moderate pine, resin, citrus, light cereal, herbal notes, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly floral sweet, with toasted malts, with toasted bread, biscuit notes, hops add pine, resin, citrus tones, finishing with a lingering moderate bitterness, balance to the hops.......mouth feel, medium body, slight alcohol, moderate carbonation. The malts are on the light side in complexity for an American IPA, but the hops make up with a broad spectrum of aromas and flavors. A touch more of caramel/crystal, and perhaps Vienna malt might make an improvement. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

On tap at Boise pub. Pours out a orangeish golden topped with a fluffy head. Nose is fruit citrus pine and a nice malty sweetness. Taste is more of the fruit mix and a piny bitterness on the end. A solid ipa always.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass, resin).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
A very simple, straightforward example. Citrusy-grassy hops are about all that’s happening in the nose. Decent quaffing flavor balance, but fairly watery mouthfeel. Overall just a bit above average.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Quinn’s in a bumped pint glass. Golden orange with emphasis on orange. White frothy full finger head. Aroma is standard IPA with hops, pine, and citrus reigning supreme. Taste is highly hop forward with bitterness and pine cone coming through in full force. Oily mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste almost like a vine of hops. Refreshing and bright in flavor but relatively straightforward. Nice enough effort from an unfamiliar brewery.
