4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ home from SF (thx Erik!!)
Pours clear gold-copper, smooth white foam.
Nose is fresh, with stone fruits and pine.
Taste starts fresh and crisp with citrus, to descend in depths of flavour: Granny smith apple, citrus, sugary white grapes and bags of hop. All in perfect equilibrium and with a modest 7%ABV.
It doesn’t get much better than this.

Fat på Monks. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar mango och nätmelon. Wohoo vilken beska! Mycket besk med stor sötma och fruktighet. Välbalanserad. Ruggigt bra ipa!

Bottle to tulip. No detailed notes on this one - good, bright, citrus-y IPA with a bitter finish.

This is an unbelievable beer. The look is a bright golden orange color with a good head. The aroma from this glass is complex and unique with some citrus, mango, lemon, pine, and on and on. Then the taste is unlike anything else in the IPA world; it changes as you drink it with a hoppy and fruity taste. One of the top three IPAs I’ve ever had.

Aromatics are lovely and very "light" in hops lots of citrus and bright fruits. Just a lovely smelling beer. Those aromatics are replicated in a super balanced taste lots of grapefruit and mild bitterness.

Nice citrusy ipa that is really crisp and refreshing. Aroma is citrus faint pine with only a hint of grapefruit. Taste is hoppy with lots of citrus and light resin with only a faint undertone of malt flavor. This finish is crisp and good. Wanted to be blown away by this one, but hey it’s still pretty outstanding!

you really don’t get much better than this with IPAs. Fresh, sweet, hoppy. It’s my goto IPA out west.

Tasted from a 12oz can. It poured a clear amber hue that was quite effervescent, with a frothy head that left streaky lacing. A pleasing hoped orange nose with kicking hops on the taste buds. Thanks to the dude who recommended this to me while pondering my beer purchase.

Not your average IPA with loads of mango, apricots and peaches on the nose. Taste is not as sweet as aroma, instead subduing the fruits and the pines creating a mild yet distinctly bitter beverage. Different.

22oz bottle, although I’ve had it from growler as well. Beautiful amber hue, and great carbonation, very fresh at time of sampling. So much citrus intermingling with the resin aroma, little bit of a tropical note. Very well balanced, hop profile goes right through the palate start to finish.
