COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Don’t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Bronze pour with a 3-4 finger, fluffy, oily khaki head that has excellent retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is loaded with pine, cat box and passion fruit, lots of citrus and tropical notes in there, but those are the three hop notes I really pick up on, the hops pretty much drown everything else out, a little toast and caramel and some sweet fruity notes, smells very juicy and delicious. Flavor is again, loaded with pine cat box and passion fruit, some sweet orange, berry, chewy caramel, nice toast and biscuit notes in the middle, and rolling in toward the finish come tons of fruity esters and (largely tropical) fruity and citrus hop notes. Medium body, chewy, juicy feel throughout with a light to moderate strength, blanketing carbonation. Very good, it reminds me of some of my better heavily dry hopped+keg hopped homebrews. Seriously good beer. One of the best, new to me IPAs in a while.

Very interesting IPA. Aroma is very strong tropical fruits, taste is really nicely balanced with some fruity notes at the end

Pours a clear copper color. Head is nice and has staying power. Aroma of hops and citrus. Aroma is clean and crisp. Hop flavor seems a bit muddled. The beer also seems a bit maltier than I would like, but those are minor complaints because this beer is pretty good. Probably not a beer you could drink back to back without getting cotton mouth.

BOTTLE.(BO01.13.16). Copper to amber in colour with thin white head, solid lacing.. Sweet fresh fruit hops on the nose, over the top juiciness.. Soft malt throughout with vibrant hoppy character start to finish, ABV though not to high is hidden very well.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Draft at lustre rooftop pool bar in Phoenix. Deep brown color with a decent head. Smells of hops but has a great hop malt balance

Bottle. Slightly cloudy copper color with medium, cream-colored head. Aroma is strong gapefruit and lemon and a hint of spruce. Medium body and carb. Great citrus flavors up front, nicely balanced by some sweetness, followed by a little resinous aftertaste. This is a great IPA.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

355ml bottle bought at Liberty Wine Merchants. Pours a hazy golden with a weak white head. Aroma is fresh, tropical fruits, caramel. Taste is hoppy bitter, flowery, with caramel notes. Extremely high piney bitterness aftertaste. Very good beer.

Pours a very clean copper with some head. Looks gorgeous. Nose has some toasted caramel, lots of floral fragrances, and orange zest. Taste follows the nose but, for the style, it’s not as aggressively hopped as I’d expect. I get orange, pine, and some bready malt balanced nicely. It feels very smooth with light carbonation. It’s very drinkable.

ippopotamo36 (1484) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 6, 2016
On tap somewhere in San Francisco, USA. Dark hazy orange color, medium off-white foam with solid lacing and retention. Nose: sweet orange juice, grapefruit too with a little sourish accent. Mouth: a bit Amber caramel, sweet hint of fruit, nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bit disappointed after being recommended. Not as hoppy and more malty in character. Despite the label. Still not bad.
