This is a respondent golden clear color with a tight foam cap. I am in awe of the incredible aroma. Tropical fruit! Guava! Some mango! The aroma is just amazing… If this put me in a coma I would be a happy man in my somnolence.

The beer has a pleasing bitterness to it which reveals notes of tropical fruit flavors. At least to the extend that an IPA will taste like tropical fruits. Think light, delicate, lightly bodied with enough heft to support it. Some light resin and a ton of fruity aromatic deliciousness followed by a dry finish. I felt like this beer was absolutely delicious. Loved every sip.

Bravo, Drakes!

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.
