Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a slight rusty hue.

Bright tropical and citrus fruit notes of orange, guava, and mango.

Tropical and citrusy juicy fruit comes out in flavor as well, but slightly more muted.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, juicy, crushable.

Overall, very glad my friend picked me some up while on vacation as it definitely lived up to the good things I hear about it!

The O.G. Canned 08/01/17

Pale golden brew, highly carbonated, lots of bubbles rising. Large tight bubbly head forms and doesn't move quickly. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing as it comes down the glass.

Lots of tropical hop aromas. Underlying hints of pine. Lime, tangerine and citrus.

Sticky wet hops in here. Consistent bittering throughout the mouth. Slight amount's of citrus, pine, and some grapefruit.

Light to medium bodied beer, prickly hop and bubbly mouthfeel. Sticky on the palate. No sense of alcohol.

I should've had this back to back with the Southern Exposure variation. Both excellent. I give the edge to the Southern Exposure, that had more of the tropical fruit flavors from the nose in the flavor. This seems to be markedly more bitter(could also be because it was canned 3 weeks later). Block 15 is doing awesome things.

On tap at TeKu Tavern in Seattle, WA.

This one pours a mostly clear light orange, with a small head, and huge sheets of lacing down the glass.

This smells like booze soaked grapefruit, orange, mango, pine and more booze.

This is super sticky, and a little boozy- there's a ton of weed here, and lots of sticky candied fruit. There's not really much malt here, which is appreciated. It's less boozy tasting than the aroma would suggest, which is also appreciated.

This is very sticky and a little sweet on the finish.

I've been really wanting to try this for a while, and it mostly lives up to my expectations.

S: a strong hop punch a mix of fruit resin and malt
T: hate this word but is so balanced with hops and malt.

Great IPA, very refreshing. The only downside of this beer is availability. It seems to sell quick and sellers only have limited quantities on hand.
