Poured into an IPA glass. Liquid is a caramel-amber color with lots of bubbles, and produces a thick off-white head that fades quickly but leaves lots of lace.

Strangely enough, raspberries is the main thing I get from the nose on this. I would have believed somebody if they'd told me this was a fruit beer. Other than that, maybe some mangoes and tropical fruits. Smells good, but not necessarily like an IPA.

Taste is super fruity - more citrusy (oranges and pineapples) than the nose. The raspberry note is still there, but not quite as prominent as it is on the nose. There's a bit of a caramel flavor underneath the others as well. There's shockingly little bitterness on the palate or the finish, and raspberries come back on the aftertaste, but they mix with the caramel and come across a bit sickly sweet and just a little "off." Still, it's really amazing how fruity they've been able to make this.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick for the style, with lots of carbonation.

Overall, definitely a strange, but enjoyable IPA. It has flavor notes that I really haven't had in other IPAs, so I'm glad I got to try it. Thanks to leveejr for the can!
