Early sunrise with light haze in body with a white bubbly head. Aroma of papaya, pine, bubblegum, grass, citrus. Tastes of papaya, grass, pine, citrus with rind, bubblegum, and booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A big hoppy beer that'll get you where you're going.

A: Amber to bronze in color, solid carb out of the bottle. Head dissipates quickly leaving about an 1/8 of an inch of head behind. Very small amount of lacing lines remain thought drinking.

N: a bit of muskyness, grapefruit, grape must, and solid hop presence.

T: somewhat dry, hoppy, moderately sweet, tons of citrus fruit, medium body with medium low mouthfeel. Hops linger long afterwards but are imparted nicely with the sweetness from the fruit and malt.

L: unexceptional bronzed yellow. Crystal clear. Large head that dissipates quickly.

S: yeast and tropical fruits and citrus.

T: generic citrus fruits. Maybe something approximating a refreshing herb. Not mint itself, but the spirit of mint.

F: syrupy.

O: large step down from the base beer. Undifferentiated IPA that skews towards the generic. And with its ABV present, and high malt sweetness, makes it a bit of a labor to drink.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly hazy Amber with yellowish gold highlights and a 1inch head with small bubbles.

Lots of tropical notes tangerine orange grapefruit. A dry citrus hop so you can tell there was dry hopping. Really smells like money IPA.

Taste is a hopped up money IPA with lemon and pine. So delicious.
