Murky bronze copper body. Spotty, sparse lace.

This smells like a nice juicy one. There's some slight toasted caramel on the nose, but it's mostly a tropical melange of pineapple, guava, papaya and kiwi. I really like the aroma and the prominence of pineapple. To me, it's reminiscent of Arrogant Bastard.

Flavor follows suit, but not quite as pronounced on the palate. But very nice nonetheless. It's like a beer version of fruit punch. Pineapple is the main player, which I like, but also papaya. Malt base provides good balance.

Lightly carbonated and medium-full body, but not syrupy by any means. Bitterness is not rough. Alcohol is in the background.

Quite drinkable for an IPA because of unobtrusive bitterness and good flavor.

A-Regal gold. Slightly cloudy

S-Bright citrus. Mandarin oranges, ripe grapefruit and a light notes of caramel like maltiness.

T-Balanced IPA...oranges, tangerines...really a nice flavorful hop dimension here and it combines nicely with a lightly sweetish caramel like malt backing. Very balanced with orange peel on the finish.

M-Medium bodied. Great balance. Hard to believe this is 7.1%. No heat. No Sharpness. Drinks like a fuller bodied APA.

O-I really like this as an approachable, balanced IPA. Not a hop bomb but the caramel malt and citrus hops mingle well together. Might just have been the day but I liked this even better when I had it on tap in Grand Forks this past winter.
