Glowing iridescent gold, with a slight head, whispy lace, and slight carbonation.
Lots of tangerine, some of the usual chacitteristics of the style.
Tangerine, fair bitterness in balance with sweetness, long drawn-out finish.
Medium to full body, ABV as expected, well carbonated, a bit slick texture.
This is a good IPA, but pails in comparison to other "Dust" IPAs. Still no slouch, and probably best with a summer burger.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A light golden hue with two fingers of creamy white head comprised of rather tiny bubbles.

Aroma is extremely juicy. Musky tropical fruit galore, guavas and passion fruit with a little cantaloupe melon. Some citrus rind in the background and a dash of peppery resins.

Palate is as close to a purely tropical hop flavor as I've experienced, with the citrus downplayed. Fresh tropical juice flavors lead the way with some mellow pine needle notes doing little to cut the sweetness. Huge Juicy Fruit gum flavor rather than the musk on the nose. Slight honeyed malt flavor. This is largely a map outlining the sweet domains of the hop flavor catalogue.

Body on the light side, ultra smooth with just a touch of prickly bite. Finish finally reveals the lemon-lime and grapefruit notes that you knew were lurking in there somewhere but the tropical fruit never takes leave. Fantastic IPA all told, if nothing else because it more cleanly targets the aromatic and sweet rather than the piney and bitter. Highly drinkable to boot. More of a diversion than a staple but this need not be a drawback.

I hate to say it, but I found this brew to be mediocre and pedestrian (sorry).

Bottle pours yellow with white head. Aroma is pine and light citrus and tropical notes, well balanced fruity bitter finish.
