The first taste of bitter hit the back of my tongue and i was afraid my whole face was going to pucker. Right away i wondere if the beer is bad - but then the malty full goodness came through and the balance was very tasty. I like this beer

Drank it straight from the brewery taps.
Amber color with a thick beige head with good retention and keeping a constant plate.
Aroma of caramels, American yeast, grapefruit, passion fruit, mild pine and spices.
Nice hoppy flavor with notes of grapefruit, pine cones, resin, toasted and caramels malts, mango, mild spices and grass. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Positive surprise from this brewery. Superbly balanced, it has all the flavors I like in an IPA and they don't predominate over each other. Good blend between pine and tropical.
