4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 7/17/16 from a 32oz can purchased at the brewery. Pours nearly clear pale orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick, super sticky lace. The nose is a really cool mixture of citrus peel, tropical fruit, dank grassy resin, and just a hint of bread malt. The flavor is a bit more citrus peel, still tons of tropical mango, with the grassy resin providing some bitterness, and just enough malt to balance. The body is medium with a somewhat oily, round texture, average carbonation, and a long lightly bitter citrus peel and mango finish.

>> Big surprise today from AZW. Chewy and denser copper style DIPA - usually a surefire recipe to a 3.3 rating from me max. However, this one is able to pull it off with a chewy but not sticky malt backbone, some balancing toffee to a big hop smackdown. Juicy mouthfeel, fresh. Never nutty or too heavy feeling.
