On tap. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of orange, grapefruit and mango. Sweet tropical fruit taste with some sweet caramel.

Straightforward NE IPA. There were two batches, #2 and #3 available at The Propagator. Cloudy yellow body, one finger white head, lots of lacing, fair retention. Smell is standard NE IPA, although not as juicy as some others I've had. The intensity of the grapefruit and tropical fruit is not there, though these are easily identifiable. Mouthfeel is medium in body, good carbonation. Solid execution, although a bigger aromatic hop presence would do this one some good. I love the name, by the way.
