16oz can poured into my Night Shift tulip.
Pours a hazy golden with a sudsy bone-white inch-high head. Head recedes slowly to a lingering cap of foam. Plentiful, sticky lacing.
In the nose, a heady blend of tropical fruits, grapefruit flesh, orange zest, and dank pine. Lots of pineapple comes through. Very appealing.
Taste more or less follows the nose...opens with grapefruit and tangerine, before exploding into a medley of mango, papaya, passionfruit, and pineapple, with the latter again being very dominant. Finishes juicy, with a slight dry, grassy bitterness lingering into the finish. Subtle pale malts provide backbone but allow the hop flavors to shine.
On the tongue, medium-bodied but with a crisp, zippy carbonation that keeps the beer feeling appropriately juicy yet still clean and refreshing. No hint of alcohol whatsoever.
On the whole, a damn fine IPA that I'm delighted to be seeing with greater frequency as of late. It can't quite hang with the titans of Vermont in my opinion, but it comes ever so close.
