A: Clear light golden yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Decent retention, eventually falling to a thick chunky surface coating. Moderate lacing.
S: Fairly strong aroma. Mostly dry bitter citrus like grapefruit and orange pith, but with notes of pine and earth as well.
T: Taste is dry and bitter. Biscuity malt. Grapefruit, citrus pith, pine, earth, and pine resin. A hint of orange. Earthy on the back end.
M: Medium bodied. Fairly bitter, if not somewhat abrasive. Appropriate carbonation.
O: Not a bad beer, though I have yet to figure out what makes this a "Caribbean Style IPA." Tastes rather typical of the Ahatnum hop. That said, there is a reason why no one creams their jeans over an Ahatnum beer the same way they do about a Citra or Mosaic beer. It simply isn't as juicy, tropical or inviting as those hops, but it is what it is.

12 oz. can poured into a snifter. December 20th, 2013. This is old.
Appearance - Orange body. Huge white head. Great lacing and retention.
Smell - Piney hop. Musty. Toasty malt. Getting weird.
Taste - A little tropical. Sweet and citrusy. Pine and grassy hop bitterness and some toasty malts.
Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium bodied and well carbonated.
Overall - Probably way too old. But I didnt like the hop profile.

Clear golden hue with bright white craggy head. Lots of citrus fruits on the nose, lemon zest and tangerine. Very oragney. On the lighter side of being medium bodied with brisk carbonation. Sweet citrus fruits through with sweet bready undertones. Bitterness is pretty high. A littler hebal and earthy on the back end. Lots of citric rind bitterness. Sweet breads combined with hearty herbal bitterness and bitter sweet citric marmalade. Pretty good.

Poured from the can into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Canned Dec 20th 2013.
A Bronze and very bright orange body but a little bit cloudy strangely, with lots of fast rising thin carbonation. Head is four fingers, a little off white and thick shampoo retention and clumping.
Nose is interesting for a hop angle. Interesting smoke earth, a possible hint of citrus fruit. A little buried and subtle though. Some time the aromas are a little more noticeable with a nice orange tangerine sweetness.
A real wonderful nice juicy and full palate. Great mouthfeel that coats, nice thickness without a lot of syrup sugar sweetness and brings the flavors out nicely. Cool mint and refeshing hop aromatics on the mid palate, the tangerine and bitterness matches with a good slick malt sweetness. Complimenting earth like hop and pine aromatics on the swallow linger nicely after finishing, with some great minty mouthwash freshness to boot.
So incredibly easy drinking, and I love this hinting creamy full perfect mouthfeel.
