A - Pours a quite clear golden copper - pretty color for an IPA. The head froths up a couple inches, but doesn't retain all that well. There is a relatively thin covering of foam on top of the beer for most of the drink. Nice lacing on the sides. A little bit of visible carbonation meanders slowly towards the surface.

S - Tropical fruit and sweet malts. Maybe just a hint of pine. It's a nice aroma, with excellent strength.

T - Starts to go downhill a little here. The flavors present in the nose are a bit too pervasive while drinking. I get something of an overpowering sweetness, with a nice bitterness, but one that is far overshadowed by the sweetness. Pine is present, but only barely, and only if I go looking for it.

M - Medium bodied, and a little slick. Refreshing finish, but too heavy to be refreshing. Meh.

O - Mixed bag here. Ultimately it's too syrupy for my palate. I've also had mixed experiences with this 12 pack, the last of which I have chosen for this review. A couple felt wonderful, but as I got used to it the sweetness just became too prevalent.
