Poured from a tallboy into a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper-caramel coloring with a low profile, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of passion fruit, kiwi, mango, orange, and grapefruit all hit the nose, with some subtle caramel and floral hops notes a little deeper in. Flavors are fruity and rich forward, heavy on the tropical fruit notes, with a solid layer of passion fruit, melon, and grapefruit. Slick and tangy caramel backbone, with roasted overtones, and a dank, resinous, hoppy character providing some solid bitterness. Oily slick and full bodied, with a fruity sweet and richly bitter aftertaste. The finish is dank and bitter, slick and smooth, with a solid linger. Good IPA.

Aroma is grapefruit and resin laden, with a strong, sweet caramel malt backbone.

Flavor reveals a sweet caramel malt backbone countered by earthy, resiny bitterness and a grapefruit juice/pith character that adds depth.
