Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow color with a thumb sized white head that does lace well.

Aroma is dominated by tropical fruits mango, melon, tangerine some light sweetness from the malts. Fruity but not overly bitter smelling.

Taste is like the aroma but more intense nice and fruity tropical fruit notes with a citrus bitter backing over powering a bready/biscuit like malt sweetness. Finish also has hints of earthy like hops, just a tinge of spice.

Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation, just enough CO2 without being over done.

Overall a pretty tasty IPA, kind of surprised I haven't reviewed it as I have had it before. Defiantly worth picking up.

Look - Clear, golden color with a one finger foam head. Fairly light carbonation

Smell - Sweet, hoppy scent. Not as strong in the hops as I would have expected, but very inviting.

Taste - Strong hops..kinda hits you in the face. Pineapple, grass, resinous hops. Great combination of flavors that don't overstay their welcome on the back end.

Feel - Much more syrupy than i would have expected. Tingly sensation from the high IBUs - one of the most long lasting hops sensations I've had from a beer.

Overall - great beer if you can handle the extreme hop profile.
