On tap at SLL tasting. Pours super hazy golden yellow with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like big pineapple, passionfruit, musty guava, some mango, orange and grapefruit citrus, mild biscuity cracker malt, with dank earthy grass and pine. Tastes like fresh passionfruit, pineapple, guava, underripe mango, orange and grapefruit citrus rind, some grainy biscuit malt, with fresh pine and dank earthy grass. Feels thick, medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry. Another great brew from MB.

Fresh ass bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. Citrus hop aromas. Taste follows suit. Taste follows suit with a prickly carbonation. Interesting. Good balance with plenty of malt backbeats. The body and mouthfeel are good. It’s not overly bitter but that unique carbonation sets it apart.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche. 5 oz pour. Very light golden color with a slight haze. Decent lacing. Aroma has great lemon charcteristics and an earthy almost, grassy note. Taste is super clean and nearly perfectly balanced. Great citrus and tropical fruit qualities. Bright and refreshing. Extremely easy to drink. This is how an IPA should taste. Hard to even put words down to describe. Just try this one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lighter than the pale, a hazy golden yellow. Fantastic citrus, floral tropical aroma and flavor. Perfectly moderately bitter. One of the better iPas I’ve had in a while. Tap at Churchkey, DC. If they weren’t charging a buck an ounce, I’ve have gotten more.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours light straw yellow with a one finger white head with good lacing. Aroma is of freshly squeezed citrus, juicy tropical fruits, melon, grass, white grapes, garlic, some dankness, and some light cracker malts. Taste is very similar to the aroma with a lot of tropical fruits, green notes, and fresh citrus flavors. Has a medium body with a creamy, soft mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long finish. Overall, a fantastic, world class IPA that reminds me a lot of Alpine’s Nelson minus the rye.
