4.16/5 rDev +2.2%
Comparing to red which I liked more. This one pours golden with nice lacing that leaves spotty clouds. Smell of grapefruit, floral and a bit of earthy notes. Taste follows suit reminding me of Nelson with a mellow bitter orange, grapefruit and a biscuit mellow malt profile. Feel has a perfect rolling carb and semi thickness

3.65/5 rDev -10.3%
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.

4.35/5 rDev +6.9%
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.
