A: Pours a clear honey yellow/orange in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of apricot + orange highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit/orange, citrus/grapefruit rind, tropical/mango, and light amounts of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts with a light to moderate amount of sweetness. That is followed by moderate to heavy flavors of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit rind, and tropical/mango hops which impart a moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Drinks much easier than the fairly high ABV and is quite the hop bomb - though it has really nice flavors and aromas.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a short white head.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose—mangoes seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of tropical fruits such as mango along with notes of citrus and a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very hop-forward and doesn't have much in the way of balance from the malts, but is really nice if you like IPAs with tropical fruits.
