Hazy golden orange with tons of large floaters. Decent head with little retention or lacing.

Very nice tropical nose. Grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. A little bit of perfume.

Tropical hop flavors, like the nose, with very little malt backbone. Very dry and bitter.

Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. The bitterness is punishing on the palate.

Overall, a very nice beer. It could use a little balance to tone down the bitterness, but it has some very nice tropical aromas and flavors.

Pours light golden with a slight orange tint to it and a white frothy head. Aroma offers some passion fruit, grapefruit, toasted cereal grains, a touch of floral, and pine.Flavor follows suit. Crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, a really nice IPA here. If they could add a little more depth/complexity/something to the malt foundation this beer could become stellar. Nothing wrong with the malt foundation as is, just that there is room for it to be even better, IMO. Would definitely drink again.

My rating: 4.00

Served in a snifter. Thanks to my Memphis connection for bringing this down.

A: Clear golden; a white one finger head with great retention. Frothy lacing.

S: Piney hops, floral, citrus-y; mangoes, pineapples. Nice.

T: Grapefruit leads with a citrus rush. A bit of mangoes, too. Low bitterness amongst the pines. Refreshing.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: I was really surprised at how good this little gem tasted. Great artwork on the can, too. A solid IPA.

I really like this beer. Very similar to Stone IPA. I was very impressed with it. Best I've had out of Tennessee.

This has quickly become one of my favorite IPAs in short order. Despite the hoppiness it's a surprisingly refreshing IPA, no doubt aided by the water quality found in Memphis. It has a spicy slightly peppery taste but is bright and floral at the same time.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and a ton of floaties. The tiny floaties swirl around amid a moderate effervescence. Head is a thin layer of frothy white foam. It's ... certainly something!

Smell: sweet malt with soapy/floral and rich, grassy hop elements. Normally not really my bag, but it sort of works here.

Taste: soapy and floral but with an herbal bite, a little bit of graininess and a definite bitterness that I don't usually find in many floral IPAs or APAs. It's still not totally my thing, but this beer definitely has its nicer points.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a great creaminess for an IPA.

Overall: not outstanding, but a totally serviceable IPA which falls on the lower end of the bitterness scale. It may not be completely to my taste, but it is interesting.
