3.21/5 rDev -17.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
12 oz can poured into snifter. Pours a hazy darker gold with generous and creamy white head and great retention. Heavy lacing left behind. The smell pretty heavy on malts with caramel evident among grassy and earthy hop profile. The hops have moderate strength. The taste is a bit sweet with heavy malt presence again. The hops have smooth and mild bitterness. The finish is a touch on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is heavy for style and moderately carbonated. Overall, not my favorite IPA. The hops and malts don't strike a great balance and this is just too sweet for the style.

3.61/5 rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a hazy orange hue with a one finger head that fades rather quickly to leave a thin thin blanket and no real lacing.
S - Aromas of faint tropical notes along with floral notes. Fair amount of sweet malt too though.
T - Taste is not bad, just, again maltier than I like. More of the nice tropical notes, pineapple and grapefruit, however, even strong caramel malts. Powerful bitter finish is nice. Alcohol is relatively noticeable too.
M - Mouthfeel is decently carbonated, but, relatively boozy. Nice strong bitterness. Just...I'm used to 8%+ IPAs to still be crushable, instead this one is more of a sipper.
O - Overall, maybe I'm spoiled but yeah, in the world of hoppy beers this one simply does not stand out of the pack.
