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.
