Beautiful appearance ... foamy head, nice lacing, deep golden color.
Taste is a good balance between malt and hops. There are hops, lots of them, very citrusy, but there's also a lot of malt in the flavor, and in the end, not very much bitterness, surprisingly enough. Tons of flavor, and fairly complex.
The mouthfeel is full, even almost creamy.
Overall, this is my favorite straight IPA, certainly the best one available around here on a regular basis.

Pours dark gold, hazy, and some fine sediment. One finger head.
Smells of mango, honeydew, and orange. Some cantaloupe too? Very tropical.
Huge citrus hops off the bat with the mango and orange mostly. Sweet tropical fruit and pretty low on the bitterness. Really taste like a fruit juice more than a beer. Not sure I've had anything like this without at least some bitter aftertaste.
Medium carbonation and pretty light body. Clean finish. Thirst quenching.
The name of this brew fits perfectly. Most tropical fruit forward beer I've ever had. I really do like it but I think it needs a little more bitterness to tame the sweet juiciness. Nonetheless, an awesome example of what craft brewers can do.
