750ml bottle pours a murky honey gold with some lasting, sticky white head. Nose is well done, grassy, straw, some soap, orange peel and pith, a little catty, floral. Flavor has some malt, a little orange, some orange pith, grass, herbs, catty here too, some paper as well. Finishes medium bodied, a little creamy and bitter. john_bl (12) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Sampled on tap and in bottle. Hazy golden. Complex aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and a bit of pine (aroma was obviously less complex with bottle). Medium head. Good mouthfeel. Taste is well-balanced between acidity and malty sweetness. Very nice. Gluepot (631) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
A full white head on a grapefruit juice body. A punchy nose leads with grapefruit and sweet malt. Very fresh hop elements. Grapefruit, lemon, and tropical fruit work well on a mild sweet malt body. A hint of pepper. Clean body, high medium carbonation. Fresh and refreshing. bytemesis (8226) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 18, 2017

Bottle. Bottled Mar 17, 2017, 4 weeks ago. Cloudy golden body, medium white head with average retention and plenty of lacing. Juicy aroma of orange candies, peaches, papaya, acacia honey, mango and yeast. Taste of grapefruit zest, oranges, yeast, peach jam, mango and hard candies. Very, very nice. dnstone (3386) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Golden with a sight haze and soft pillowy white head. Delicate orange-citrus hop aroma and taste. Soft texture, quite nice.

Shared at Craft. Hazy straw pour with off-white head. Nose was piney hops, tropical fruit, florals. Complex flavor, with spare hops, citrus, florals, and some white peppery notes. Great IPA. lebiochimiste (24) - - MAR 17, 2017
Had to fight with the cork in order to access this elixir. Pours hazy yellow with a decent head. The aroma reminds me of guava fruit with a hint of grapefruit. Delicious taste: full body and slightly dry. Hoppiness in the mouth : more resinous (pine, cedar). Glad the bottle contains 750 mL! MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Mango and guava juiciness leaps from this New England-style IPA’s silky mouthfeel, leading to friendly grassy resins and a last-second citrusy kick.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sliver of foam covers the shiny yellow haze.
-Piney bitterness is restrained; this is mostly about aroma and flavor.
-The soft bubbling increases drinkability.
-Tropical hop fruitiness is compelling throughout.
