12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Dark golden orange, mostly clear. Two fingers of off white head.

S - Great tropical fruitiness. Grapefruit is the most dominant, followed by other citrus like orange and pineapple.

T - Largely grapefruit, which is complemented by mango, and pineapple on the back end. The fruity hops counterbalance the resinous bitterness.

M - Moderate body, moderate carbonation. It has an oily and resinous mouthfeel.

O - One of my favorite IPAs with that great west coast flavor profile. I'll be getting this again.
