Draft at Weekend Pub. Pours amber with a short white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet with citrus fruit, tropical fruit, caramel and floral notes. Taste is sweet malt, toasted grains, citrus fruit and tropical fruit. Body is medium with a soft creamy carbonation. Finishes with more tropical fruit, citrus, caramel and sweet malt. Tasty!

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a fluffy off white head. Odd earthy floral hop nose. Orange peel flavors with some burnt english muffins and marmalade. Long grassy hop finish.

Golden pour into the glass, with a nice frothy head that retains well, leaving thick lace. The nose is of piney bitters. Flavors are of citrus, lemon and orange, with a nice pine hopped back to finish. The body is medium providing an extremely easy quaff. The mouthfeel is soft, making for a very nice IPA sessionista.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a good and hoppy beer. Somewhat thick with a good punch of flavor that stuck to the palate. Not too alcoholic like some beers in this style. Easy to drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Citrusy, piney, resinous, and floral hop aromas. Gold, with low retaining, white head. Predominantly bitter, but well-balanced and lifted by malty tones that come through at the end. Medium-full bodied, with average carbonation, and a long, bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ar: Lots of mango and orange, very juicy and round - a touch of toasted malt.
Ap: Crystal-clear gold - medium off-white head with moderate retention and a thin sticky coat of foam remains.
T: Bright citrus and mango with a firm bitterness - some sweetness and grainy malt - bitterness takes on some black tea astringency, though only a little - lingering lemon, mango, and pineapple.
P: Medium-light body with high carbonation - finish is very dry.
O: A bright, fresh, and light colored IPA - really showcases hop flavor and aroma, and the mango is a nice component - delicious and supremely drinkable!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aggressive bitterness and some pleasant pine notes, but not enough citrus presence for my liking. Still, a solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aromas of American IPA -- some citrus, bready malts, and a little pine. Solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Slightly hazy orange-tan body, steady creamy white head. A really solid IPA which remains sessionable, I’m really impressed. Grassy, straw dry hop character, some melon in there too, not one-dimensional. I’d be really happy to serve or drink this as a house IPA.
