This beer pours a deep golden color like orange blossom honey or a sunbeam. It has a faint haze and a lasting off-white head. The aroma is very citra-esque with lots of tropical fruit notes- passionfruit, guava, pineapple – orange, some lemongrass, but also a bit catty. Beyond the hops there is also some grainy malt with a toasty character and a hint of light caramel. The flavor is similarly full of hops, very tropical with some floral & citrus (grapefruit, orange) as well. The hops also lend lots of bitterness, but not to an offensive level, which leads to dry finish with a bit of malty sweetness. I’ve had this beer a number of times and it’s a bit unmistakable, yet different each time. This time was still great, but surprised in the drop-off in hop potency for only 3 weeks since canning which let a bit more malt sweetness come thru than usual. Just another reminder drink your IPAs as fresh as possible.
