Color is a golden amber. A lot of tropical fruits here, but also dank and weedy. Mango and pineapple. Very juicy. A solid dipa that I wasn't expecting to be so good.

This beer really stands out especially for the style. Luckily I live in Ohio and enjoy Great Lakes, Thirsty Dog, Fat Head and Hoppin Frog every week. Very nice mouthfeel and taste. Piney and citrus overall a great west coast style IPA. Highly recommend this beer if you can purchase it.

Nice golden color with an off-white head. Great hoppy aroma with a lot of citrus and pine that builds high expectations. Flavor did not disappoint. A lot of citrus and tropical fruits. Noticable mango and less pine than expected. Good malt balance and sweetness without much alcohol heat. Moderate bitterness that finishes clean at first but builds and lingers a little at the end.

12oz bottle no date.

Big dank earthy hop character. Hints of citrus, and something that brings up memories of goat feed... Medium bodied, very drinkable.

Bright cloudy orange with a big white head and spotty lacing. Citrus, pine, light tropical note in the back. Bitter citrus and pine with not much of the tropical note coming through and a light grain backdrop. Bitter, resinous and dank. Well carbonated but thinner than I expected from the cloudy look. Overall a very solid IPA with some big bitter citrus and pine components. Mouthfeel lacks a bit and flavor profile lacks real depth but a straightforward hop punch and that's not a bad thing.

Pours a nice clear Amber color. Head is a thick foam that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Well carbonated. Smell is of clean malt with lots of hop profile. Mango, citrus, pineapple. Taste is crispwith sine nice malt sweetness seeping in, with some bitterness from the hops. Very well balanced. Finishes nice and dry urging you to drink more.
