Poured from a 12oz. can at 45 degrees F. into a tulip style ipa glass.
A - golden blossom honey with a slight haze . 1 finger of clingy soapy foam that sticks around. alcohol legs are present around the glass.

S - Tropical fruits are strong, mango, pineapple & mandarin oranges. sweet, sweet malty / honey notes.

T - bitter tropical smash to the pallet. mid mouth sweetness from the malts almost like a frosted donut with tropical fruit salad on top. this is absolutely delicious.

M- full bodied. coats the mouth in flavor and leaves a delicious resiny aftertaste.

O - This Beer is fucking awesome. I can drink this IPA everyday. And IMHO is just slighty better than sculpin. I would buy this and many other of the fantastic offerings by Ballast Point Brewing whenever possible. happy to have a great ipa like this for my 300th beer.

Cheers!
