4.54/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Fluffy white head with a solid body on top of a cloudy, tawny-gold ale. Aroma filled with overripe pineapple, juicy yet pungent. Cracker-like dry malt aroma underneath.

Flavor brings a big dose of tropical fruit up front, leaning heavily towards pineapple. A rough, resinous edge to the hop bittering keeps the tropical flavors in check. Subtle malt sweetness underneath like a pie crust that's been filled with fruit.

Finishes with a firm bitterness and rather dry, wiping away any hint of residual sweetness. The dryness keeps it dangerously drinkable as you keep going back for another sip after the last. A roller coaster of tropical hop flavor barely held back by some piney resin finish.

SS 6
A- hazy straw color with fluffy white head. White lacing all over the glass.
S- mango, banana, passion fruit, melon
T- follows the nose with light tropical fruits like mangos, banana, honeydew melon, melon pear, and pineapple.
M- light body with moderate carbonation. Sticky hops. Oils coat the palate pleasantly.
O- another killer beer from HF. I love the mosaic hops. The more fruity and tropical the IPA the better. Easy to drink with tons of flavor and no harsh bitterness.
