Can poured into glass

Thick , white billowy two finger head with great lacings. Trace of carbonation

Aroma of tropical fruits, floral, whisper of pine

Smooth, clean balanced. Hops on the front of the tongue. Gentle carbonation, slight bitter finish and aftertaste . A session able IPA?

Recommended by a friend, great suggestion.why isn't this beer higher rated ?

Burnished copper in the glass that pretty. Smell is sweet and tropical -- almost like you can feel the humidity. Lots of guava, mango and pineapple, but less on the citrus front. This is a bit less forward hop forward than a lot of IPAs. The hops are buoyed by a thick syrupy malt that sticks to the tongue. Overall, a very nice beer that is dangerously sessionable.
