4.63/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Was very excited to get my hands on this.

Got two bottles gave one away as an extra.

Smell- No joke and I hope the name is not persuading me this is one of the, if not the best smelling IPA I've ever tried. Smells like 35 tropical fruits that made love to a bag of mixed hops.

Taste- reminds me of palate wrecker. Not a whole lot of tropical flavors like a Sculpin even though the smell had me going there. It is pretty much perfect for an IPA. Little citrus orange nice hops, and lots of them.

I hope this becomes seasonal. Really digging this one.

4.26/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22 oz. bomber poured into Golden Road tulip glass. Bottled on 7/1/14, drank on 7/25/14.

A: A very appealing gold -- fairly opaque, and with a decent-sized foam head that lingers.

S: Intoxicating aroma that fills the glass. Tropical fruits, some mild sugar and pine are all abundantly present.

T: Sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Those tropical fruit tones and sugary malts are at the forefront, with the pine coming in on the backend.

M: Starts off on the medium side, but gets a bit heavier as it warms. Some pretty mild carbonation and a non-resiny finish still make these very pleasant.

O: This beer is everything it's supposed to be; some amazing aromas and a hop profile that also delivers some great tastes, too. It's a very good IPA for summer -- finding a great balance between flavor and body, while not possessing alcohol content that's going to make it difficult to drink in the sun.
