Pours a hazy orange with a medium head,

The smell of pine, citrus and mango smacks you in the face.

Tastes nearly like the aroma, mouth is fairly thick and but works well for this brew.

Finish is bitter with some of the tropical hints, and booze.

This beer is awesome. Very bitter but the tropical flavors balance very well with it. One of the best IPAs I've ever had! It is a must try, but not for the faint of heart or people skeptical about hoppy beers. This is the king of TIPAs!

Just popped the top on this one bottled in May...it is now August so 3 months old.

First thing to note is the aroma while pouring....sweet Tropical fruit and ..berry notes.
Pours a beautiful amber color with a nice thick white head that relatively quickly turns to a fine lace on the edge of the glass.

Aroma in the glass consists of more big tropical fruit and berry. a touch of piney resin but not much. Hard to believe this is all hop imparted.


on the pallet.... flavor is sweet, blueberries are my first thought, then pineapple and mango. resinous pine finish. the high alcohol is very present in this bottle. As it warms a sharp booziness appears on the tongue with a bit of heat in the belly as well. The 11+% of this beer is defiantly present in this one. 121 IBU is more than my normal "comfort range' but the bitterness is not seems to play well with the sweet berry and mango flavors.

Mouthfeel is thick and bit syrup like, I think i would like a touch more carbonation to help lighten this beer.

Overall a fairly good beer with an amazing aroma but just a bit boozy for my pallet.

Bottled on date of 07/16/14

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and pure gold in color with a white, finger width head. Sub-par retention results in a near barren surface and a small ring of suds around the edge. Lacing is small and spotty, with fair stick.

Smell - Tropical aroma, with huge juicy notes of mango, grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Subtle pine resin undertone.

Taste - Tropical hop is the main show here. Big mango and grapefruit. Light pineapple zing. A bit more pine than the aroma led on, with moderate resin flavor hitting mid-taste and into the finish. Some mild orange pith and nutty stonefruit pit in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Full in body with low carbonation. Thick with a touch of syrupy character, but smooth for such a big beer. Dry finish.

Overall - Pretty damn good. Big, but doesn't overwhelm, at least not in the tangible sense. At 11.1% it can creep up on you fast if you aren't prepared. So yeah, anyway, definitely worth a try.
