Pours gold with an orange hue and a huge whit head that sticks around and to the sides. A fantastic aroma with some funkiness, tropical fruits like pineapple and guava, a touch of orange, and a little spiciness from the rye. Flavor is dry with some breadiness, a little funkiness, tropical fruits, some rye, and a piney finish. Would have liked a touch less pineapple and a touch more rye, personally.A thinner, crisp mouthfeel. Overall, my intro to Jester King is a definite winner. Good stuff.

Usually I won't go for a large bottle of IPA. But this was Jester King and it had a cool label....

Glad I bought it. This a really nice beer. Pours light golden, almost straw color. A bit hazy. Nice big rocky white head, great lacing.

Aroma is hop forward, citrus and tropical. Hints of breadiness linger, but are overpowered.

Flavors come from the world of citrus and tropical hops, with a bit of earthiness sprinkled in. White pepper here and there. Not much rye from a rye IPA, but enough to notice if you think about it. The biscuit is subtle with subtle spice. Tropical hops flavor with the citrus hops bite. Really easy drinking. Great beer
