Appearance - Pours an amber with two fingers of foamy white head.

Smell - cirtrus hops, tropical fruits(passionfruit,pineapple), grapefruit peel, some pine resin, and sweet caramel malts.

Taste - Excellent initial punch from the citrus hops followed by the tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple), grapefruit peel, touch of pine resin, and sweet caramel malts.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness.

Overall - An enjoyable fruity and bitter American IPA that possesess an excellent hop profile with a supporting caramel malt sweetness. A winner for all the hop heads out there.

A: Light, dehydrated urine color. A little hazy with thin white head on top. Consistent lacing.

S: Wow, first smell is mango! I then get green apple and banana . Fruit hops are always such a welcoming first smell.

T: Taste follows the nose. Very fresh. Banana, mango, sweet citrusy hops. Tastes like I bit into a very ripe, juicy peach. Nothing unpleasant

M: Light carbonation and light mouth feel. Aftertaste starts to taste a little like licking envelopes.

O: I've passed this beer many times because of the gimmicky bottle but I'm sorry I did. This is an awesome, fresh IPA that reminds me of Cigar City Jai Alai or Brew Bus Last Stop IPA because of the fruity hops. This is in my top 5 of non-rare IPAs right now. I paired this with grilled shrimp seasoned with Old Bay Lemon & Herb seasoning and it was the perfect complement. Goes wealth with spicy, citrusy, salty and savory.

Poured into an imperial nonic a dull light to medium golden with a lacey half finger bone white head atop that left some decent lacing as it settled into a frothy mass.Overripe tropical fruits stand out most in the nose along with a little fresh cut grass,a dryer crisp malt base in the nose.A little light in the feel and malt heft keeps this beer from being grear,as it's very good in my opinion.Tropical fruits are the main component flavor-wise with a dryer biscuit malt base.
