This beer pours a vibrant hazy golden color with a 1.5 finger, creamy bright white head. Retention is average and there are huge chunks as well as thin webbed lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is super bright citrus and tropical fruit. Orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, tangerine and bitter citrus pith explode out of the glass.

Taste is the same, but slightly more flavorful. Starts off with juicy fruit notes and transitions into a pithy and suprisingly bitter finish. This beer definitely has some bite to it.

Feel is light side of medium, very oily and resinous. The hop flavors assault the palate and stick to it long after the sip is finished.

Overall this beer is excellent. Palate Shifter by Captain Lawrence used to be a favorite of mine, but this beer is even better in my opinion! It will definitely destroy your palate though.

"Unfiltered with a ton of US grown cascade, centennial and citra hops, then dry hopped with citra lupulin powder,for an intense tropical punch"

Enjoyed at the brewewry and now reviewed from a 1/2 growler at home.

Pours heavily hazed lighter amber, with an orangy hue...supports a nice looking fine bubble cap, off whte...leaves a fine coating film, low sheeting and scattered sheeting all the way up on the glass..

Fruity/tropical sniff..with oranges and tangerines coming to the senses

Delicious and delicate brew, tropical hoppy notes all over the palate, lemons, limes, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit....well crafted and highly enjoyable creation...go get some while the tasting room still has it flowing...
