COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.

Nice aroma and good flavor but a little too earthy for me. After drinking a couple of wet ipas this just isn't quite as good.

Bottle to pint glass. Appearance: cloudy burnt orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma: bitter grapefruit oils, lemon peel, pale malt. Taste: dominated by sour/bitter citrus. Palate: good carbonation, but a bit oily. Really well done.

Pours a chill hazed golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of resinous citrus hops over faint caramel malt. Taste is more balanced, clean and easy drinking IPA. Solid beer, soft carbonation.

commonmac (1000) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle shared by wildcard and poured into a pint glass. Nice golden and orange color that has an unfiltered, cloudy quality. Off white head. Aroma has citrus notes primarily orange and tangerine. Taste follows the nose with a well balanced effort of bitter and sweetness leaning mostly citrus. Oily mouthfeel. Feels like a familiar IPA. Very accessible. Not quite a fantasy but good reality.

Good IPA with a malt back bone and light hop. Toasty light hop. But builds with bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks, ineedbeer. The beer is a medium orangey amber color. Itís quite cloudy. I canít quite see through the middle of the glass. The head is small to medium in size and white. The layer of foam sticks around for a good amount of time and leaves some lacing. The aroma has a lot of light caramel malt flavor with a citrus forward hoppiness. Mild tropical flavor. Mostly orange with some grapefruit. A little bit of a peachy flavor to it. Just kinda mild and uninteresting. The taste keeps to that mildly hoppy theme with a fairly strong biscuity malt sweetness with some caramel. Moderate to mild bitterness. Some astringency. Mildly sweet. Thereís just not a lot going on. The hops are a bit blandly bitter, though the beer isnít very bitter overall. Medium body with a touch of booze.
