On tap on the brewpub into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a long lasting finger of white foam.

S: This is like putting my nose in front of a mango. This is maybe the fruitiest smelling IPA I have ever smelled. Pretty much all I smell is mango and peach and I love it.

T: Similar to the aroma, all peach and mango. I get a bit of bready malts, but this one is all fruit. Balanced bitterness and some sweetness, but more as fruity rather than caramel. Amazing.

M: medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

O: I'm not sure if this is the same recipe as the previous review, but this beer is all tropical fruit. The aroma is near perfect with a ton of tropical fruit. The taste is well balanced and also very tropical. Extremely good.

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours an almost opaque deep copper color with a cream-colored head that leaves solid lacing.

Smells of grainy pale and caramel malts with large amounts of herbal and pine hops. Also present are hints of deeper earthy hops.

Tastes significantly less robust than it smells. Moderately dry pale malts up front are joined quickly by mild herbal hops. Midway through the hop influence turns toward pine, which fades out into a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall I found this profile of this beer similar to the Co-Hop pale but with a drier malt influence. The aroma was very good on both but the hops weren’t as robust in the taste department. Still, it’s worth a shot to see for yourself.
