Poured from 12 oz can into tulip glass

A - A vibrant golden body and thick, foamy white head. Moderate lacing.

S - Tropical pineapple, fresh flowers, grapefruit rind, and lemon.

T - Pineapple and citrus hop flavors dominate from the get-go. Then, a rush of sugar cookie malt sweetness. The finish is mildly bitter with cloying sweetness lingering on the tongue.

M - a fairly hefty body gives the beer a creamy mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

O - The hop aromas and flavors are superb and inviting. However, the overly saccharine malt just overwhelms the tasting. A drier finish could make this an epic beer.

A local brew, and an excellent brew. Nails the hops and flavor, great nose. Mouthfeel lags a little behind, but you only notice because it's hits the mark squarely in all other respects

Amber colored body with a slightly off white and thick head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is a wave of citrus in its sweet form. The malt integrates to the nose of citrus bringing sweet orange, tangerine and clementine notes. Flavor follows with a sugar like sweetness up front from the malt backing which again just lends a perfect sweetness backing to the orange, tangerine and clementine flavors. Crisp mouthfeel with some bright carbonation, heavy end of a light body and a crisp and drying finish. Great IPA here that I'd love to have again. It's citrus all the way, balanced in a good way and super drinkable.
