COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 4.7% hop bomb is loaded with New Zealand hops bringing out passionfruit, pineapple and other exotic fruit aromas balanced with a mild sweetness and lingering hop finish without any bitter astringency. Straw colored and light in body, satisfies those craving hops but not a ton of alcohol as well as lighter beer drinkers looking to try something new.

Sample during RBWG Tampa, 2015. Hazy yellow pour with a medium white head. Nose is somewhat funky. Dirty tropical sea grass. Tropical fruit salad. Salted gym bag. Engaging. Flavor is similar. Nice dry, aromatic bitterness. Funky grass. Bright and easy to drink. Great low ABV hoppy number.

32 oz. crowler, consumed on 11-14-15. Pours a hazy, pale brass with a large amount of long-lasting, uneven, off-white to cream-colored head. The color is a bit boring, but the head and lacing make up for it. Produces good lacing. Nice, classically West Coast American, piney, herbal, dank aroma. Also yeasty. Good, dank, herbal, mineral, slightly-bitter, hops-dominated flavor. Sawdust. Some lemony citrus. A touch of apricot. Bread dough. Dry, bitter finish. Very nice hops effect but little going on underneath. Medium body. Quite lively in the palate. The liveliness is good but the palate effects otherwise are ordinary. Simple and not amazing but an above average and overall impressive IPA.

jlruthven (599) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Good god. On tap at the source. Golden light orange, slight haze, head has nice structure. Big on tropical fruit, some melon, pineapple. Dry texture, but the flavors linger in a big way. Smooth carb. Wonderful.

PhillyCraft (4763) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2015
On tap at source, piurs hazy vibrant golden yellow with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma of pineapple, juicy mango, honey, and other tropical stuff. Flavor is beautiful and dank hopping, lots of kiwi and other citrus fruits. Perfectly balanced. Awesome batch of Nelson hop juice.

On tap a couple of different places. No detailed notes - just noticed I’ve never entered it. Good session IPA - less bitter than Fixie, but similarly balanced.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Crowler filled 2 days ago. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that fizzles quickly. Aroma is sweet honey and light floral grassy hops. Flavor follows with some bland sweet malts and honey, hardly any bitterness from the hops, extremely watery. Super light bodied, lowish carbonation. Overall this was a real disappointment. Crank is truly world class. A lot of these other IPAs they’ve come up with at Cycle are just subpar as can be.
