Surprisingly good refreshing, head was 1/4 " of heavy foam which laced the glass as it was enjoyed. Smell was hoppy goodness, without any bready yeast smells. Color was a orangish yellow very clear. Taste was without yeast. Great hopped unbalanced delight.

Beautiful golden beer, incredibly active, with a solid snow white head. Retention is fantastic, leaving behind wide flat snowy fields of lacing.

Extremely tropical hoppy aroma: mango and starfruit, with pale malt sweetness behind.

Flavor follows: this is a fruity, sweet, but fairly light IPA. Carries the hop flavors of a DIPA, with the drinkability of a single.

Pineapple, mandarin orange, mango, honey; a bit of leafy green bite to the hops, as well. Slightly dank, but certainly not the primary component of the flavor.

Very lively feel, minor sting; very drinkable, fairly light; semi-dry with just a bit of oily retention.

This is an excellent, juicy, superbly drinkable IPA. Believe the hype.
