12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear golden copper, with a finger of foamy eggshell white colored head. Retains with a thick layer of creamy froth, which leaves a strong looking latticework of lacing behind. The aroma is smooth and sweet in the nose, with robust tropical accents of mango, apricot, and oranges, mixing with bready malts. All of that big sweetness is wrapped up in additional notes of floral spice and some gentle warmth.

The taste matches the aroma, with a silky sweet backbone of toasted malts and tropical fruits. There is a modererately biting spicy bitterness to this, that adds a dry zippy flush to the profile. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a softer carbonation that is propped up by a thicker feel underneath. This stays nicely quaffable despite the 7% ABV as well.

I liked this for the most part. Overall very sweet, with lots of tropical character to this, but a bit more strength in the hop departmnet would have really made this pop. Not sure what the freshness was of this bottle but I'd be willing to check out another down the road.

Pours a dark ambery red, looks more reminiscent of an amber ale, but has a nice plump crown of slight off-white foam.

Nice bready, toasty, and caramelly malt undertones provide a nice addition to the mainly citrusy and piney hop character.

Pine, citrus, biscuits, and caramel dominate the flavor.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, resinous, piney, dry finish.

Overall, not the best IPA out there, but it does the job.
