Slightly hazy, aroma is not all that bright, maybe on the dank side. The taste is mellow, a little hop spicy, but just ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (sugar cookie, caramel, bread), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin), with notes of peach and dried mango.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Quite nice, if a little out of style...very malty and beefy for an IPA. Lots of tropical fruit notes. Some resin too, but it’s mostly behind the nice fruity aromas so doesn’t really detract much. Good stuff.

Sampled at GABF 2014. Glad to find this brewery after making a note to myself to make sure to try their stuff. Overboard IPA pours a typical golden body with white head. Nose is soft citrus fruits, light bitterness suggested, faint spice and fruit. Mouthfeel is nice soft citrus fruits, maybe a hint of mango & melon and pine as well. Really solid offering.
