Very prominent tropical fruit notes. The hops are present in the smell and at first taste. At 7% it is extremely easy to drink four of these without getting overwhelmed. I would say that this beer borders an APA and an IPA. Great tasting beer. Although fairly new to the hops game, I place this one in my top 5 beers to drink.
