3.65/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Small white head. A little bit of surface wisping.

Smell - Equal parts herbal and grapefruit. Reminds me of Nelson. Resiny, too. Some caramel and toasty malt.

Taste - More grapefruit. Less herbal. Toasted malt backbone. Slightly astringent in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Drinks like an IPA. Heavier than I thought it would be. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Good pale ale, but not anything all that remarkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Bottled about a week ago.

A - Hazy light apricot color with a 2 finger white head. Nice retention and good amounts of lacing.

S - Sweet mango and other tropical notes up front. Light sweet malts and breadiness also linger.

T - The flavor is less sweet that the nose. I pick up more bitterness from the hops, mango, tangerine, and grapefruit that provides the bite. There is a light sweet malt presence.

M - Clean, smooth and lighter body with awesome carbonation. The hops linger a bit.

O - On par with the other TG brews I have had. Very full tropical flavor with the bitterness to quench thirst. I've had fun tasting all of the XHOP varieties.
