Murky pale golden yellow body with loads of sticky lacing.

Pleasant aroma of tropical fruits... Pineapple, mango, and orange. Little malt presence.

A solid showcase of simcoe hops. Tropical fruit dominates the hop profile. Spot on with the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is sticky with low carbonation.

It's a solid DIPA and certainly quenches any hophead's craving.

12 oz bottle courtesy of mgbickel pours a fairly clear gold color with a sticky white head. Good retention and lace.

Nose is honeyed malts with a touch of toffee and tropical/grassy hops. Fairly balanced DIPA with a strawberry preserve covered biscuit aspect I am fining intriguing.

Taste is pretty nice...there is plenty of malt, but the hops shine with nice flavoring additions - both old world herbal/grassy flavors as well as some American style tropical flavors. Bitterness is fairly tame and the alcohol is uber-smooth...would have never guessed 9.5%. Malts are biscuity with a slight hint of toast. This is a really tasty beer, I could drink a couple of these back to back...no problem.
