look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour: a nice light brown brew with a white thin beer head.

smell: is a light sweet smell like fruit and a light pine.

taste: i get a lot of fruit some mango and peach is very light but still there along with the hops and the malts all blended into each other.

Overall: Its drink also being 7.0% abv its a little more simple then most. Id recommend this for someone trying to step up their ipa taste this is the 2nd step.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours an awesome light orange with a subtle rust-like hint. the carbonation is great and the head formation is white in color with tight tiny bubbles. head dissipates rather quickly but hugs the rim of glass.

S: big grapefruit and peaches, with secondary apricot and mango. awesome balance of these tropical fruits with the massive piney hops

T: once again, a very nice balance of the tropical fruits (grapefruit, mango, peaches a slight apricot) with a big hoppy pine backbone. i also pick on a just a slight hint of lemon.

M: medium bodied and carbonation is spot on, leaves an ever so slight hop bitterness on the palate which is highly appealing.

O: this is just an excellent brew. the hops and the tropical fruits are so well balanced with one another. this brew is definitely worthy of the high ratings that it has received.
