Looks straw golden with a white lingering foamy head.Smell is not very pronounced for An IPA. Some mild pine,citrus, earthy. Tastes like a good IPA. Citrus overtones with a mild hop bite and a caramel malt finish. Feels semi crisp,finishes on the dry side with sufficient carbonation. This beer is good , but not outstanding. I would drink it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is straw, a bit of haze, head is off white with fine bubbles, presents 1/2 inch thick and then lingers with a solid top at least 1/4 inch thick; good lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is full of tropical fruits, but low on intensity - subtle mango, pineapple and maybe some passionfruit; very subtle malty bread component.

Taste follows the tropical fruity hops with a bit more bitterness presenting: mango, pineapple are dominant flavors but not overpowering or overdone. Moderate sweetness presents as you finish but limited malt depth, not bad just a bit thin in malty flavor.

Mouthfeel starts fairly soft to moderate then transitions to the bittering edge with some dryness.

Overall a good ipa but just bit out of balance with limited malt character to back up the tropical fruit and bitter qualities.

3.14/5: Odd stuff; very light and slightly fruit, but with an underlying dankess that doesn't mesh spectacularly

A: The beer is quite hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but left a short head covering the surface and a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pineapples, papayas and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, but the pineapple stands out in particular and there are additional notes of passionfruit and the underlying malts with subtle hints of peppery spices. Only a light amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer has a lot of different flavors going on. While none of them really blew me away, they stimulate your taste buds.

Serving type: can
