Pint pour at Peg’s of an odd color yellow, somewhat bright. Nose is good citrus with plenty of grapefruit. Sharp. Flavor is somewhat off, good hop presence but a little funky? Maybe it’s just me. I can’t quite place it. Nice smooth body.

My Bottom Line:
This slender New World Pale Ale develops plenty of tropical fruit and bitter resins in a frothy and easygoing body.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam produces some lacing while dipping into the cloudy pale blond.
-The tropical fruit spans from lemon to guava.
-Hops also produce sandy undertones.
-The very soft carbonation feels natural, which increases drinkability.
-Malts are mostly supportive here, even if they do build a few straw notes.
Freshly canned at the brewery taproom.

On tap at the brew house -- a very light straw yellow color. Aroma is straw, grass, citrus, lemon peel. Flavor is more bitterness than aroma or hop flavor. Decent, I preferred their Fixie more.

Big can courtesy of Paul. Pours a light hazy golden body with nice white lacing. Aroma is super funky, grassy and wheaty. Mouthfeel is super soft and delicate - definitely sessionable; with notes of pineapple, funky hops, funky dank character, slightly sweaty profile, wheat and grass. Really nice session ipa with huge funk character dominating.

Sample at Peg’s Cantina. Slightly hazy amber-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and biscuit malt. Light-bodied with flavors of melons, citrusy hops and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a topical fruit and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Hazy light yellowish-orange with a frothy white head. Grapefruit, kiwi, passionfruit, and pineapple. Delicate sweetness, wine-like elements. Dry, light-bodied, lively carb, and fairly clean. Mild bitter finish.

[5/1/14] Draught at Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Clear golden. Amazing aroma full of tropical fruits – melon, carambola, prickly pear, a hint of mango. Dry flavor full of fruity hops with a grainy note and great refreshing bitterness. Medium-bodied, quite rounded. A wonderful session IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Hazy straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Good retention and interesting lacework. Not much going on in the nose, but the body and flavor are way nice. Light to medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers citrus rinds and flesh for a bright, bitter-tangy bite with a short, crisp, dry finish.

Draught at Mikkeller Viktoria.
Pours hazy golden with a wet head.
Hoppy, dry bitterness dominated by Nelson hops. Not my cup of tea.
