Golden copper pour with barely any head. This is one of the best smelling ipa I have ever had.. Pineapple, mango, minty freshness, guava, honey... Very sweet tropical fruit aroma.
The flavor is a bit bitter as I take the initial sip, then immediately encounter that delightful tropical fruity hop profile. Finishes with a sweet bready flavor. This is delicious.
Medium in body with lower carbonation.
This is one of the best shorts beers I've encountered so far. A lot like half acre's heyoka.. Hmm I wonder...
