4.09/5 rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving type: 16-ounce can. The “DRINK BY” date printed on the bottom of the can is “10/29/13.”
Appearance: Poured into a nonic pint glass. The color is golden, pale amber. Two fingers of dense, off-white foam settled very slowly and unevenly, leaving lacing along the side of the glass.
Smell: Though not overpowering, it offers all the usual suspects. A cattiness dominates at first and underneath it are light scents of grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangerine, and lemon. There is even a little caramel hanging out, too. As it warms, the cattiness dissipates and the citrus comes to prominence. A little pineapple and mango are introduced as well.
Taste: Very tropical with a lot of mango, pineapple, and tangerine. Grapefruit and orange are also very prominent, and a hint of zest gives it a nice kick. It also has a solid malt foundation; caramel and lightly toasted malts counter the bitterness to keep it from being a hop bomb. And though the bitterness is turned up a notch as the beer warms, it remains very smooth and palatable for 110 IBU.
Drinkability: Tasty and very drinkable. This is a very respectable beer.

Poured from a 16oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass.
This beer pours an attractive orange-yellow with a little haziness. The huge head slowly dissipates to a nice lingering lacing all down the glass.
The smell is not extremely strong but initially hits with some tropical fruit, a hint of yeasty bread and maybe, a touch of caramel.
The taste is very bold. Piney hops blast you tongue along with some tingle from the carbonation. Then you pick yup some of the tropical fruits -- citrus, pineapple, maybe some mango. I get a bit of the sweet malt as well. Nice stuff going on here. The finish is all piney bitter.
The mouthfeel is slightly sticky with an appropriate amount of carbonation.
Overall, this certainly satisfies my hop-craving with a nice mix of flavors and a really decent balance. A really good brew.

A - poured into a pint glass. Poured a beautiful cloudy orange straw olor. Head was a monster 2 finger head. Little sediment very hazy the lacing on the IPA is amazing all the way down its leaving a heavy lace
S - a lot of pine and citrus mostly a lemony grapefruit, biscuity malt aroma and a crisp Bread Smell mmmm
T - Right off the bat pine pine and more pine and grapefruit towards the end I get the malt flavor.
M - a medium dry finish with little bitterness
O - I love this IPA it's a perfect harmony of sweet fruit flavors and bitterness. The malt blends really nicely and the bitterness is just perfect. Goes down easy and this might sound weird but my burps taste like grapefruit it's awesome lol
