pours a semi murky gold with a decent bubbly off white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Some orange citrus, also some mango or other tropical fruit. Taste is complex. Some orange and other fruits. Some moderate hop bitter kicks in, but there’s some faint sweetness there too. Long full finish with pleasant nasal linger. Solid.

Thanks kmweaver for sharing this bomber: Tremendous resin and orange notes in hop aroma exponentially increased in hop flavor. I suspect a touch of crystal malt supplements the lean base malt profile. There is a curious drying note in finish that I find leans toward solvent warmth, yet my knowing informal tasting partner kmweaver calls ’slightly vinous’. This may be balancing, or possibly a mark off (most prominent as beer warms). Amazing hop schedule-- is it simcoe/amarillo?

Pours dark yellow with medium head, leaving a nice lacing on glass. Aroma: white tropical fruit, mango, peach, some pine tree. Nice intense and complex aroma. Taste: citrus fruit mixed with very pleasant bitterness, exposing the hoppy crisp thanks to a relatively low body. Nice, balanced palate. ABV well hidden. Complex but at the same time very drinkable. That’s what an IPA should be.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a dark golden copper color with tinges of orange. It produces a nice three finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly into a nice layer covering the beer and running around the edge of the glass. Big aroma on this. An immediate dankness rose up from the glass. I got hints of pine, with citrus, mild grapefruit with a hint of lemon. I also got big tropical fruits, definitely some mango. Maybe a hint of peach and a dash of apricot. There is also some nice malty sweetness coming through that masks the alcohol nicely. Starts off very soft on the palate. Not a ton of carbonation to speak of. A lot more lemon on the taste. Picking up a bit more peach and apricot on the palate as well. Middle of the mouth the bitterness comes back into play, some of that piney grapefruit. Slightly sweet towards the back and it finishes very clean. Not really any trace of the alcohol. The body on this is medium light to medium. It’s a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA.

From a can. Pours a light amber-orange and makes a nice white head. Smells of toffee and light caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
