12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange body. Nice white head. Some lacing inside the glass and some islands of foam.

Smell - Tropical fruit hops, but a lot of herbal and grassy notes. Something sweet to it that isn't malt, though. Like coconut or something.

Taste - Tropical fruit and grapefruit. Sweet caramel malts. Herbal character comes out more in the grassy bitterness. A little musty.

Mouthfeel - Bitterness lingers on the palate. The grassy bitter finish is intense. Medium body.

Overall - The hop tastes really good up front. Maybe too bitter, but it's a well made IPA.

Grabbed a can from Tipples. Super fresh. Pours like the other High Seas variants, just a slightly hazy golden orange color with a one finger white head. Juicy mango and citrus aroma, pineapple, grass, some sweet malts in the background. Big juicy mango and orange peel flavor, sweet citrus but more tropical fruits, light malt backing here, and again with a somewhat unpleasant finish as I have had with all of this series. Medium bodied, juicy, with medium to high carbonation. This is such a great series to me, I just wish CCB would do something about the weird finish on the base beer. Worth a try and hoping they do some more with this hop. The Citra is still far and away the best of these.

From the can. Born on 1/30/2014. Purchased at the brewery on 2/6/14.

I'm very impressed with the HOTHS series of IPA's. Pours a clean golden hue into a pint glass with only a modest bit of lacing and foam. Beautiful aroma of mango, citrus and bread malt. Very mild hops flavor without much bittering. Lots of citrus and tropical essence on the tongue with just enough malt middle to balance it out. Soft, creamy mouthfeel is reminiscent of a very fine cream ale with low carbonation by IPA standards. Completely clean aftertaste with no lingering flavors would lend well to food and repeated glasses. Overall, very drinkable and a welcome beer on a warm Carribean day.
