Honey yellow in color with an amber hue and heavy chill haze. Poured with a thick, dense, white foam that reduced to a steady cap that draped sticky lacings down the glass. Huge, floral aroma, with citrus grapefruit and ripe pineapple in the background and a piney hop twang at the back end. Hop aromas are backed up by a sweet, caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied with tangy, rich carbonation through the middle. Fresh tropical citrus and floral flavors up front followed by a wave of pine hop bitterness through the middle to the end. Finished dryly with a lingering, resinous, pine hop aftertaste. A nice showcase of hop aromas and flavors.

Can from Proof Bottle Shop. I had this beer directly from the can while a t the pool earlier today. Aroma was sweeter than Jai Alai in the way of more mango and pineapple. Aroma was also a touch of pine and earthy grassiness. Taste was sweet tropical fruits, only slightly bitter hops, and lightly roasted malt. Well carbonated and good body to this beer. I should have bought the full 6 pack.

32 oz. growler filled at Vista bev., South Salem, NY

Pours near clear, slightly ligher then almond amber. Nice fine head, leaves a delicate collar, tiny bubble film and super fine sheets of lacing. Nice lookin'...

Muted nose with some grainy hops

Decent butt really nothing special kinda AIPA.

More grainy/resiny hops in the forefront. Hoppy with nearly enough malt to reflect some balance. Not overy impressed. The look of this one was the highlight, and thats not a good sign.

Clear apricot colored with a thick and dimpled rocky off-white head that lingers long. Inviting aroma of bright tangerine and pine. Taste fairly matches the nose, very fresh citrus flavor, tangerine and pine, some ruby grapefruit and orange rind. Some subtle malt flavors ride beneath, but the hops are front and center on this one. Firm bitterness. Full and round mouthfeel. Very tasty beer.
