From the bottle, it pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a lustrous thick head that leaves lacing as you enjoy it - even on an out of date bottle like the one I am enjoying! Pleasant scent of pineapple and citrus in the nose. The mouth gets a solid malt with a light "sting" of citrus. nice!

Pours a hazy golden hue with a thick head into my glass. Sweet pineapple essence in nose with a mellow citrus vibe. Big pineapple bite upfront that dominates the palate, finishing with sweet malt. Mouthfeel confirms that this is a burster, a pop of flavor that quickly dissipates. Well worth a try if you like pineapple.

Look: It pours golden and clear. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: The aroma has pineapple and grapefruit up front. There are other tropical fruits and cantaloupe.

Taste: It has pineapple flavors with cantaloupe and grapefruit. Other tropical elements and low in the background. There is a bit of sweetness in the flavor from beginning to end.

Feel: It has a medium body. The sweetness carries through the finish. It is not really all the bitter.

Overall, a nice tropical IPA with a lighter bitterness than the average IPA.

Where do I start? Ah! Remember going to the grocery store and buying those gummies (fruit snacks), more so those shark bite gummies? Now you can experience it again but this time in beer. This beer gives off a nice pineapple flavor but a gummie pineapple flavor. Don't expect the real thing, if referring to pineapple, but expect the real thing when referring to gummies!

Good balance of IPA hoppy dryness and pineapple sweetness. A no brainier in the case of tall boy cans. Camping, beach, feeling "tropical" in your underwear. This is easy drinking, good party beer as a starter IPA and good enough for IPA fans.
