Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, copper coloring, with a steady flow of carbonation throughout, and a filmy, clingy, white head. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit forward, with pineapple, grapefruit, and melon, with a sugary sweet caramel backbone, and subtle resinous undertones. The flavors are like a tropical fruit salad forward, with pineapple, apricot, mango, and melon, followed by a tart grapefruit character, and a solid undertone of cedar and pine pitch, pepper spice, a tangy caramel note, some hops resin, and roasted notes. Smooth and mid-bodied, with the carbonation lightening things up a bit. The aftertaste is a bit more of the bitter and resinous hops character shining through, with some of the fruit sweetness handing around still. Slick, dry, bitter lingering finish. Solid IPA.
