Golden yellow in color. Clear in appearance. Drinks light. Bitterness on the back end. Hops don't jump out at you. Grapefruit, pine and orange zest.

Amber/gold body. The look is reminiscent of an IPA. Light in color, crystal clear. Uninspiring smell. Wet socks. Faded orange and old 7-up. If the smell was uninspiring, the taste is inspiring. Balanced tropical flavors that are mushy...soft. Maybe I should say, the flavors are intricately woven together. Nothing explodes, no 500lb bomb...this is a cluster bomb with juice. Mellow flavors. Laid back Imperial IPA. The feel is right there, on target. Nice carbonation throughout, easy body.

Overall - Excellent. Nice look, decent smell, great taste, awesome feel.
