bottle poured into a tasting glass. pours a rich orangish amber with one finger of white head that lasts a minte or so. nice.
aroma is full of tropical hop notes, with passionfruit, citrus and grapefruit notes. nicely fresh with a unique hop quality (apart from a typical IPA).
taste is more of the same with a mellow and easy-going character. the hops are flavorful and not bitter, except for a semi-dry note on the back end.
mouthfeel is medium bodied with a semi-dry finish and a residual dryness that creeps up on the rear of the palate.
drinkability is good. an easy-going IPA with a very drinkable aura. the tropical hops are very fresh and the aftertaste is solid. cheers!

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
