4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Drakes. It pours a clear light golden color with a white head. The aroma is very intense with grass, dank, citrus and a little mango/pineapple. The flavor is the same. Nice hop complexity with notes of dank, grass, spice and some more fruitiness to balance. It finishes solidly bitter and dry. The body is perfect with very little malt to speak of. Maybe a hint of grain. Otherwise, this is a perfectly executed hop bomb. One of the best from Drakes in a while.

Pours a light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and light dank hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some nice grapefruit and tropical fruit notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a tasty IPA.
