Pours with an aggressive very white head. Took a bit to wait for it to settle down. Pale yellow body and quite cloudy to pulpy OJ looking. Very nice citrus, tropical fruit hop aroma. Even a little sweet. No particular resin quality.
Smooth with an orange juice quality with a hit to two of sweetness before a nicely soft bitterness balances it all off. The sweetness was less evident as I worked through the drink but it sure was nice early on. More tartness with the bitterness in time. Soft feel with moderate body. Almost fluffy at times. Intensity of flavor seems to fade in time. That might be a hoppy beer thing. Seems to drink easily. Good easy drinker with some interesting flavors.

Straight up pineapple flavors. Way more tropical than any "tropical" beer I have ever had. Personally I want a bit of orange in this to help balance the pineapple, but still very good.

Very hazy on the pour. Decent carbonation. Mosaic hops, citrus and some hay on the nose. The taste has some really nice flavors with the hops, citrus, floral, and dry earthy tones on he finish. Feel is dry and thin on the end which was nice with the flavor combo but could use some beefing up.

Tangerine, orange creamsicle, lemon, grapefruit juice, melon and hints of pine. Zesty. Cracker malt. Dank and delicious. Finishes fairly dry. Nice level of sweetness. Really good.

Appearance – Two finger persistent head on a very hazy deep yellow body.

Aroma – Mango, pineapple, orange juice, and citrus pith.

Taste – Strongly bitter grapefruit peel, hop resins, citrus, mango, underripe pineapple.

Mouthfeel – Creamy like an Orange Julius.

Overall – A very, very good beer, worth the price.

Pours a hazy golden hue with brilliant white pillowy head. Bold hop forward aromas and flavors. Citrus and pineapple dominate the taste. Small floral sweetness and pleasant bitterness.
