look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Light amber color with about a finger of white head that left a significant amount of lace and sheeting on the sides.

S - Lots of tropical fruit, mainly pineapple, with a bunch of citrus. There is some pine, and a little bit of mint. There is also some slightly unpleasant cat piss odor.

T - Taste is quite fruity, pineapple and some citrus. It's decently bitter on the end.

M - Fuller side of medium bodied, lower carbonation also makes it seem bigger than it is.

O - Out of the first run of Haymarket beers we had, this was the most enjoyable. Not spectacular, but a pretty good beer.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass.

A - Served with a finger of foam that settles to a thick collar and thin cap, with impressive glass-coating lace. The body is a lightly hazed light coppery color.

S - Big tropical fruit and citrus aroma. There's a solid burnt sugar malt backbone in the periphery and maybe a faint hint of alcohol.

T - The taste starts out quite nice, with a big citrus and fruit explosion. However there's an odd earthy, papery note in the finish for which I don't care. Nice well-attenuated but present bitterness lingers.

M - There's surprisingly heft and body to this beer, considering it's only 1% stronger than the standard IPA. Pleasant medium-low carbonation, and fairly smooth texture. Very dry and resinous finish.

D - I liked this better than the regular IPA. If they could get rid of that slightly odd flavor in the finish this would be a winner for me. In any case it's my favorite Haymarket offering at this point.
