3.58/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Cloudy color of rust and copper. Smaller head of tan/orange foam bubbled off quickly, leaving a nice level of lacing inside the glass. Medium low carbonation upon initial pour.

S: Very nice. Aroma of juicy hops and sweet citrus fruit are prevalent, with a notable malty backbone.

T: This is more along the lines of a wickedly hopped APA. Strong notes of hops blend with a drying grain character that builds into a mildly sweet citrusy flavor. Malty flavors play a small role, but are present toward the finish.

M: Slightly flat, but smooth and enjoyable. A touch more carbonation would've gone a long, long way with this one.

D: Not bad. I could see this being in the fridge from time to time. Worth trying if you're a hophead, looking to tone things down a bit before you pop you're next DIPA.

This brew pour a golden orange with a frothy off white head the breaks down in to slight tracing when agitated. Piney hops and caramel on the nose. Hoppy bite followed by a smooth round finish slight carbonation. Nothing special, kk run of the mill ipa, I like the brewery though.

This beer tastes and smells of pineapples, I would love to sip this at Hawaiian themed party or on the beach. However for daily life I do not enjoy it very much.

It is also not as hoppy as I expected (though admittedly I have high hops expectations for IPA's).

Caveat -- I did drink this after eating something very spicy so I reserve the right to edit these statements.
