The beer comes in a cloudy golden orange color.

The aroma is just rolls of tangerine, bright grapefruit, tropical fruits and mango. It's hugely vibrant and citrusy. There's a bit of malt in there.

The flavor is just an explosion of grapefruit baseline. Spicy and grassy in the front. The middle offers a sweet passionfruit, apricot, peach, mango, onto a bit of bubble gum. The back end dries out with light bitterness. A bit of floral and spicy herbal bitterness.

This beer really blows my mind about how well crafted an IPA can be. The hops just do not stop on this one.
