Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of catty resinous citrus hops, hint of grapefruit and vanilla, peach and mango. Taste follows, hop forward but very light on the bitterness, clean and easy. Good carbonation, awesome stuff.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a trade. Nose is strong citrus and pine hop aroma. pour is a light, hazy yellow with a medium white head. Taste is more malt forward than the aroma would suggest, but the hop bitterness comes through as a very grassy, lingering bitterness, almost pithy and drying. Seems to be absent of most pleasant hop flavor. dry, but not thin, lively CO2. Just disappointed in the hop flavor.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours cloudy golden-orange with a medium white head. The nose is massive juicy tropical fruits... mango, passion fruit, juicy tangerine, dried apricot, candied fruits, five alive fruit juice. The taste is bitter-sweet, juicy orange, mango, tangerine, passion fruit, straw, pepper, toasty grass, earth and light alcohol warmth with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Juicy and delicious!

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Consumed 37 days after the date on the bottle. Hazy yellow with an inch of frothy cream-colored head. Moderate rate of decay. Pineapple and passion fruit hit my nose as soon as I poured from a foot away. Pineapple, guava, passion fruit, bit of sweet corn, some floral and orange. Body is medium-light, oily, quite dry. Creamy, moderate carbonation, no burn. Flavor is sweet orange, herbs and grass, light clean bitterness that does not linger, hay. Not quite as intense as the aroma. A great IPA with an outstanding aroma that is quite dry and somewhat light. Maybe needs a bit more in the flavor to make it the best among IPA’s.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is lightly hazed peachy yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a nice grain bill, bread crust and light dough. Hops are strong behind with a nice citrus / tropical note aroma. Taste follows suit, doughy malt with some toasted grains and a tropical hop punch behind. Extremely low bitterness making it very drinkable. Body is light and airy, a bit prickly in the finish with softer carbonation.

Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable
