Poured from beer into a pint glass, a copper body with a white head that's a finger thick.
This beer smells and tastes so fresh, was canned just 10 days prior to drinking this. The only word screaming out in description is tropical. The citrus is so fresh and juicy, like a good pineapple or a peach. The taste lingers with no bad after taste, making it so drinkable. I'd recommend this beer for any season and any occasion.

Poured from a can into a spiegelau ipa glass. Enjoyed with some super spicy indian food and they complimented each other perfectly. This beer is incredibly balanced, just bursting with tropical fruits, peaches, apricots, and tangerines. So easy drinking. The taste lingers but never bitter or biting. I love this beer and could drink it all day. It's juicy but balanced and feels lighter than the abv would suggest.
