Bottled 11/05/14

Appearance- Orange golden/amber in color and pretty hazy.

Aroma- Pungent grapefruit, mango, and tangerines. Some general malt sweetness as well.

Taste- Acidic and bitter grapefruit is most noticeable from the first sip. Middle and finish are mellowed out by a sweet cracker/caramel malt combo (more so the cracker), and softer and fruitier hops as well (mango, pineapple,etc).

Feel- Soft, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a pleasant dry/clean/crisp finish.

Overall- I've seen a ton of this sitting around and I'm pretty confused as to why as it still tastes fresh as hell and its just a really good beer. Really nice soft tropical hop flavors and great drinkabilility that jacks abby ipl's have. At 4 or 5 bucks for a pint bottle its a solid value too.

All around pretty decent. Smell is good but not worthy of a higher rating.
