4.4/5  rDev +4.3%

Pours out an opaque caramel color, with one of the nicest heads I've ever seen; thick, creamy just off white. Tremendous lacing. Forget the nose, the room instantly lit up with hops. I'm two feet away and I get fruity hops and esters. I go in close for pineapple, grapefruit, papaya, it's like a carribean fruit salad in there. I even get a touch of sweetness, strawberry like, and faint. The taste hits me with pineapple and grapefruit again, right int he front, developing some peach and other stone fruit flavors. The whole time the grapefruit and pineapple stay with you though, and it finishes bitter, reminding you each time you swallow that it's a big IPA. I'm not the biggest IPA fan, and this is too hopped up for me, but I can recognize that it's an exceelent interpretation of the style, with lots of fun stuff to enjoy.
