Pours a frosty golden yellow with a medium foamy head. Head retention is modest, with good lines of lacing left behind. Tropical, citrus, and pine hop notes make up a simple, hoppy aroma. The flavor profile features tropical fruits with pineapple and mango. Citrus and pine hop notes come in as well. The pine notes stick around for a while. It remains well balanced, while still being tasty. Mouth feel is medium, filling, and a bit mouth coating. Overall, it's a nice brew. Good hop notes in both the aroma and flavor.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Poured from a tall boy. Hazy yellow color with one finger head. Aroma is citrus with a slight warmth to the nose. Taste is also citrus, grapefruit being front and center. Mouth-feel is medium with average carbonation . I got it in a trade but would buy it with no hesitation.

Served on draft at Eddyline.

Appearance: As bright as if brewed by AB InBev. This beer is so bright you can literally read through it! The only factor preventing a perfect 5 is that the head fades quickly.

Flavor: Damn good! Pineapple and then come the hops. The malt plays second fiddle. It is in the background, but allows for the hops to headline. Very good. Very well balanced.

Mouthfeel: light-medium.

Aroma: hops (obviously) but little else.

Overall: a great effort and a very good beer - Eddyline's best offering. This beer can rival nearly all of Denver's best IPAs. Balance is the key word of this beer. Everything has its place in this beer, and that place is exactly where everything should be.

Pours a clear, amber color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, slight earthy malt, hint of yeast, hint of grass, and slight piney hops. Fits the style of American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, sweet malt, slight earthy malt, hint of yeast, and slight piney hops. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and decent body and blend.
