Appearance - Bright Orange Caramel color with light foamy head.

Smell - Lots and lots of citrus with some piney finish to the smell.

Taste - Wow is this one nice and smooth. Nice bitter start and a smooth citrus finish

Mouthfeel - This one was very smooth and almost tasted like it was on nitro.

Overall - This beer was a great. I was happily surprised with the trade and would love to get another sometime soon.

Pours an interesting dark murky orange/brown. With little head. Like the color of apple cider. Aroma is very tropical. Taste is loaded with tropical flavors, as well. Some orange and grapefruit in there. Has a very sweet aftertaste. Maybe too sweet, its lingering in the back of my throat. Very interesting and different. Thin mouthfeel which makes it easy to drink. The only negative here for me is the sweetness at the end. Alcohol is present but doesn't take away from the tropical fruity flavors. Glad I got to see what an imperial English style summer ale is all about. Very light, even at the high abv, with a good amount of flavor.

It's not much of a looker. Murky and dingy yellow. Looks like dirty pineapple juice. A little white head, but not much.

...but it smells delicious! Sticking with the pineapple theme, there's a lot of it sling with grapefruit, dragon fruit and/or kiwi.

Tropical flavors as stated above, but not as pronounced as the aroma. Grapefruit and dragon fruit, a nice combo of bitter and sweet.

Sticky and juicy mouthfeel. Leaves a sticky coating in my mouth.

English style IPA. Ha. Yeah, right. It's a juicy citrus and tropical American IPA, but I don't care.
