Bottle: Poured a hazy deep blonde color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of resinous and citrus hops is quiet powerful with light residual sugar notes also noticeable. Taste is dominated by some powerful citrus oriented hops with some resinous flavours also noticeable with a well-balanced malt presence that let traces of residual sugar noticeable. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. I am really enjoying the product from this brewery and I could see myself purchasing this beer on a regular basis.

A:
Pours a hazy brownish gold with insane carbonation and an airy three fingers of white head that gassily inflates and pops its way down to half that. Excellent retention; lots of sssscummy lacing.

S:
Tons of tropical fruit. Yeasty spice, grapefruit, bubblegum, bananas, caramel malt, lemon rind.

T:
Vaguely bitter and inoffensive. Earth, juniper, tea, toffee, orange pith.

M:
Medium bodied with well-hidden alcohol and a dry finish.

O:
Pretty good IPA (although apparently it sees itself as a strong ale or something).
Beer opens with a satisfying pop and pours beautifully. It had a really fruity hop profile in the nose. The beer tastes much less west-coast-tropical than the aroma would have you believe. The rest of the beer is enjoyable and quite decent albeit overly carbonated.
May try again (well definitely try other stuff from the brewery); worth trying
