Pours a brilliantly vibrant golden hue with deep orange edges. A finger of bright white head resides on the the top of the glass. Super sticky looking with great lacing. Smells of pure hop heaven. Oily hops invade the nostrils. Huge tropical hop nose with lots of grape fruit, orange, peel, citrus, and a touch of mango. Bright apricots come through as the beer airs a bit along with ripe pineapple. The head fades a bit and it's time to drink!

Creamy and delicious smooth with a mild body. Pungent and tangy grapefruit on the middle of the palette. Starts with a sticky sweetness and follows up with a fruity intensity. Extreme hop bitterness dances along the back of the tongue and fades away leaving a tropical paradise of flavor on the tongue. Minute amounts of alcohol makes its presence known and adds to the balance of this beautiful brew.

Purely a hop bomb. The pale malt adds nothing but a stable body intended to hold together the well blended flavor of delicious hops. Incredibly complex and dangerously drinkable.

Truly a winner and a contender for my favorite beer of all time.
