Had on tap at Thai Me Up. Review from notes.

A: Pours a darker copper color with a small off-white head on top, decent retention and lacing.

S: Wow, extremely fruity. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, and papaya.

T: Very similar to the aroma, just a blast of tropical fruits, chiefly grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine.

M: Medium bodied with smooth mouthfeel. Very easy drinking.

O: A really nice beer, tons of citrus fruit which is something I am always looking for.

Fresh growler, opened in Portland Oregon.

A - Pours straw colored with amber edges, a thin but frothy white foam on top. Crystal.

S - Bruleed grapefruit, kumquat, resinous pine, & sweet biscuit.

T - Tight, bright and bitter, grapefruit pith, lemon, long lingering bitterness.

M - A nice, even body with surprising carbonation, given the growler transport.

O - A very tasty, well-executed rendition of the style. Next Level, I'd say. Glad I got to try it!

Draft and from a bottle now... Pours clear light orange with a very nice white head... Pretty intense citrusy and pineapple hoppiness.. piney and a little dankness with warmth... Again, not as bitter as most IPA's that are this big... Very balanced and deceptively drinkable.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a nice orangey amber hue into the glass, with an straw colored head on top of the beer, leaves behind a nice bit of consistent lacing.

S — Smells quite piney, earthy, herbal, resinous, pithy and dank. Lots of woody, grassy, and lemony hop character.

T — Much like the nose, though not so in your face, a nice balance of pine and lemon, with a nice bit of malt sweetness to round everything out.

M — Medium bodied, great carbonation level.

O — Great overall, it's really tough to bet against Melvin. Keep up the good work.
