Purchased at my local spirits shop in Tampa, FL. $12.99 for the 4-pk, outrageous! Btld 3/10/15, drunk 4/13/15.

Pours a murky yella-amber. Mango, passionfruit, grapefruit pith, and other lush, juicy tropical and citrus notes... sour peach, granny smith apple, I could go on and on. A much more subdued flavor profile when compared to the nose: spicy piney/resinous notes accompany some fruity-tartness with lingering bitter pine and apricot/peach skin. Comparable to Racer 5, but not quite a syrupy sweet, which I like, much more drinkable than the likes. 8.93/10

What she said: "Better than the other IPAs you like... milder." 6/10

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is bursting with grapefruit. Taste is very hoppy, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits, bitter and dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good beer.

12 oz bottled on 2/18/2015 poured into an IPA glass.

A - clear golden orange with a fluffy one and a half finger head. Visible active bubbling.

S - It says resin on the label, and it is resinous. Grapefruit, sea salt/onion, maybe a touch of pine.

T - The hops come through direct. You do get some notes of citrus and pineapple on the back of the tongue, but the hops are in charge. There is enough malt balance to keep it from being overly one-sided.

M - The mouthfeel is solid, medium carbonation and a slightly creamy, if bitter, finish.

O - Not available locally, wished I picked up a few more to take back from Ohio. Recommended IPA.
