A: A dark copper, borderline gold with a slight white head comprised of big soapy bubbles.

S: Fresh mango pulp! this is followed but cascades of pineapple, sweet caramel and tons of grapefruit. Dried fruit comes to mind while enjoying this aroma with a nice tart citrus.

T: Very floral opening to this brew. Freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit are mixed with bits of grass and mandarin orange. Pineapple makes an appearance with a juicy pine finish. And my oh my does it finish long.

M: Medium bodied with not much in the way of carbonation although you can feel the bubbles on your tongue. long juicy finish.

O: Very impressed. wonderful. juicy yet balanced. a beautiful beer that i cant wait to have again. /93

poured out of 32 oz growler into stemless glass

a: absolutely beautiful deep burnt orange/amber with small off white head that lingers for a bit. crystal clear. one of the most attractive looking beers i've ever laid eyes on.

s: bursting with tropical fruit and citrus aromas, not overly bitter. i want to dive right in.

t: just as the aroma indicates, tons of tropical fruit, oranges/tangerines, excellent balance between bitter and sweet

m: very smooth, almost creamy, mouthfeel. not overly carbonated, but that may be due to several days storage in the growler - and i'm fine with that.

o: loved it. STT was right up there with the best i've had of the style. i would drink this any day of the week. keep up the great work gentlemen!

Appearance: Served on tap with a copper color and a medium head that left some splotchy lacing. Looks good, but the head wasn't too impressive.

Smell: Amazing. Think White Rajah smell with a little bit more peach in there. Tropical fruits all the way, and a lot of them.

Taste: Unlike White Rajah, the taste is just as good as the smell. There's mango, peach, orange, and other tropical fruits (they say papaya, but I really don't know what that tastes like). A touch of malt balance, I suppose, but this is a great tropical hop bomb. Not much pine here.

Mouthfeel: Pretty typical DIPA, I would have liked more carbonation and it's a touch thick, but it goes down well, probably just because it tastes so great.

Overall: One of the best if not the best DIPAs I've had. If you're looking for tropical fruit flavors in a IPA/DIPA, there's no way you can be disappointed. This makes even the Rhineguist Truth IPA seem more unremarkable.
