3.75/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a fluffy orange/tannish head with a swirling lace/head retaind all the way to the bottom. Slighlty cloudy amber to copperin color, never settled, but drank it during a NCAA football game so it went down in about 10 minutes (for 12 oz). fast for me.

Smells of big piney hops with some floral notes and a wiff or two of malty body.

Bitterness is nice. more malt is needed. Hints of lemon and orange in the hops.

Good cheweyness, but somewhat overwhelmed by hops.

Adequate effort but nutin special, would never turn one down

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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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.
