Pours medium amber with a white head; some pineapple but with cooked stonefruits.

Medium full body and a rich character and mouthfeel.

Flavors were a bit heavy cooked pineapple and a bit malty. A little out of balance to my taste; or, perhaps I should say that it's a well balanced IPA and that I prefer my IPAs to be a bit out of balance bitter hop-wise! Hops were not as "bright" as I prefer. There was a little bit of a dull character to the flavor and a bit of an "awkward" sweet character. Medium bitter/fruity finish.

Nice fruity bitter finish. A nice drink and good with food. Simply not as bright as I like. Not much of a "statement" here.
