This IPA is so fucking gold itís awesome. Seriously, so light at 7.2%. smaller white head. Aroma of onions, tropical fruit, and plenty of pine. Just a touch of dank. Almost zero malt profile going on here, which I really like. The onion is a little too much for me, but it isnít as noticeable the more drink. Bitter finish, great carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlogged rating from bottle: Pours a deep clean golden hue with a lasting fluffy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of mango, grapefruit, pine, resiny, onion, and catty esters along with some pale biscuity and slight caramel malts. The taste is hop forward but only a bit, sharp aggressive bitterness and fruity overtones layered over a bed of grains. Some dankness occurs as it warms as does some hop spice notes. The mouth feel is biting at first but smooth overall, a tad metallic. I like this enough to have no issue finishing off the sixer minus the one bottle I sent to Hopscotch.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is virtually bursting with juicy citrus and tropical fruits. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with busy carbonation. The bittersweet flavor is spicy Ė clove Ė with a medley of citrus rinds and lightly-roasted grains. Crisp, perfectly-balance, semi-dry finish. Bottle generously provided by BBB63!

One of the better beers by Schafly. I really wanted to hate it, since most of their beer is so ehh, but this was pretty damn good. Worth picking up.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is grape-y and grassy. Reminds me of Toppling Goliath IPAs-both in expression of hops and the clean, wheaty malt profile.

Very light in color for an ipa. Smells very floral and citrusy. There are many ipa's I would drink before this one, but it was very drinkable with a nice bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with mango, peach and pear esters with cracker and biscuit malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours lighter than I had imagined it would a yellowish gold hue. Aroma is the only area that lacks as it wafts light hop (I assume Nelson Sauvin which is light in the other beers I have sampled that feature it). However the flavor is big and very, very balanced with focused hop profile that is slightly tropical and citrusy while being lightly grassy at the same time. The mouthfeel is just a tad light for my tastes but I wonít dock it points for that. Overall this is a great beer very drinkable, in fact on the the most easy drinking of this style I have every had.

Hazy mustard pour with fair white head. Wow! what a nose! Sweet and fruity mango nose and flavor. Big pineapple and mango kick. Really awesome. The bitterness was a bit over the top on the finish, and ruined the balance that it had. But this is a damn good ipa! Iíd put it on the level of hopslam or nugget nectar.
