The spirit is been a delicious go to IPAA of mine for some time now. Like the name is just the right balance of flavors and it's not too overpowering.

Draft. Aroma of orange and... ash? Maybe just a bit of Simcoe onion mixing with the Centennial. Flavors of orange, peanuts and finally toast on the finish. Slightly sticky on the palate. Old-school West Coast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong overripe tropical fruit a bit of light pine. Moderately strong pine and tropical fruit. Moderate bitterness. There is a touch of toffee, but the beer is a showcase for the hops. Balanced finish with a slight lingering bitterness. Too drinkable for a 7% beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a small foamy head that fades to a messy ring and leaves decent lacing. Fresh hop aroma of mango, flowers, dank weed, peaches, and light pineapple. Tastes very green. Fresh cut flowers, mango, peach and dank hop oil. Almost no sweetness but a nice smooth bitterness throughout. Medium body. Smooth, soft carbonation. Very good IPA. Not my favorite aroma and flavors for an IPA but this tastes ultra fresh and smooth. I can see why this is a favorite for some.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a bottle shared by someone at ACBF, thanks... Loose, snow white head, hazy golden blonde robe. Citrussy aroma, grapefruit peel, bitter honey, unripe peach, hemp, orange, grass, cheese. Soft fruity onset, apricot, pineapple, smooth body, a bit thin perhaps, long citrussy and piney hop bitter finish. More than decent.
