On tap at House of Brews. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Pale golden orange. Slight haze. Nice white head that settles to a medium collar and a thin layer of foam. Nice rings of lacing.

Smell - Grassy and piney. Grapefruit behind it. Sweet tropical fruit at the edges.

Taste - More discrete hop flavors. Herbal and pine right up front. Brings out the grain. Behind it is mango and tropical fruit sweetness. No apparent sweetness from the malt. Dry, grassy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, but the dry finish makes it crisper. Moderate bitterness.

Overall - Tropical characteristics come out more as it warms. Seems to get better, too. Very enjoyable.

A-Clear golden orange. Head is a full finger of white fluff. It laces well. A nice looking beer.

S-Here come the hops. According to the bear Republic website, the two showcased hops are Mosaic and Meridian. I've never heard of Meridian before but I know what Mosaic smells like and it's all here in the nose. Very tropical hoppy aromas. There is also a grass and pine element as well. I get a noticeable melon and mango aroma which is great. Also a slight peppery spiciness which I am figuring is rye.

T-The mango and melon is very intense. I even get some guava. Citrus and green grass hops as well. A great combo of tropical fruit and sheer bitterness. The rye malt really brings some nice spiciness that almost seems peppery. Finishes very, very bitter.

M-Long lasting bitterness. Medium body with tight bubbles. Dry. Drinks very easily; my pint didn't stand a chance.

O/D-Great beer. Very hoppy with unique flavor and also a hoppiness that is shockingly similar to mangos. I do t know if I will be seeing this one again any time soon and I am damn happy I tried this.

@ Tyler's Bottle Shop

Orange gold with a small, white head that fades to a thin collar. Bright hoppy aromas of grapefruit, mango, sugary melon, mixed berries, lemon, lime, and faint pine. Huge, juicy hop flavor...oh man. Fresh tropical fruity goodness with a touch of resin. Mango, grapefruit, pineapple, loads of citrus, tangerine, melon. Medium bodied with a nice softness and a surprisingly restrained bitterness. An absolutely outstanding IPA pushing into DIPA territory ala Sucks. Glad it seems they realized this was too good for a one-off.
