Copper color, hazy, indicating a lighter filtration perhaps. Mild aroma of passionfruit. Tropical fruit: guava, mango, also a vegetal wet-blanket flavor. Light body. Excellent, unique IPA. This is not a "hop-bomb", but more of a well-balanced, light IPA, that focuses mostly on the hop flavors, as opposed to malt.

Wet hopped American IPA that states "Simcoe" wet hopped IPA but from what I was told at the pub, (the source) that Citra is thrown in this beer as well.

This beer is the tropical fruit juiciest IPA I've ever tasted. It was continuously called the starburst IPA from the staff and many patrons. It really did taste like a pink and red starburst fruit chew, along with a resinous and danky mouthfeel backing up all the fruit juiciness. I've never experienced a IPA with such a unique flavor profile. Not even Zombie Dust.

Very highly recommended and the most pleasantly unique IPA I've ever had. Between this and Wet Dog, Lagunitas has their wet hopped beers dialed in. That's for sure.
