Pours a mostly clear amber body with a small white head with good retention. Aromas are very big on orange zest, tropical notes, and spiciness (lots of zing), and caramel malt underbelly. Hops up front present as a citrus peel medley with a touch of resinous notes. The mid-palate is a soiree of sweet malts and spicy flavors, before a pleasant orange peel finish. Aggressive but well balanced. This is quite good, and I'd happily buy more.

Pours golden in color with a bit of haze and a billowy off-white head. The nose is big and beautiful with lots of citrus and tropical fruits, really juicy with some nice dankness. The taste is just like the nose with some some great bitterness balance off all that sweet fruitiness. The beer is full and round in the mouth without being heavy. This is a great IPA, big hop presence in great balance with the rest of the beer.
