A - Bright orange glow, nice 2 finger head, great chunky lacing down the glass. Head doesn't stay long, virtually gone before the first sip.

S - Big bright hop character jumps out of the glass with an assertive and definite tropics land citrus nose. Subtle sweetness in the nose promise something nice.

T - Thankfully follows the nose with tropical and slightly citrusy notes. There's snow underlying sweetness, never cloying but adds to the overall experience and compliments the tropical notes. Bitterness builds just a bit then fades, never really growing and making it into the finish. Very clean finish with no lingering bitterness but some citrusy notes following through on the back end. Really good tasting beer.

M - A bit thinner than I'd like, very low end of medium mouthfeel. Smooth, not very punchy with carbonation. Very clean on the finish. Nothing special mouthfeel wise but nothing distracting either.

O - Recommended to me by my beer guy and I'm glad I tried it. This could have benefited from a fuller mouthfeel and some more bitterness to bring it together but overall a strong IPA. I would revisit this again.
