Appearance - Bright Orange Caramel color with light foamy head.

Smell - Lots and lots of citrus with some piney finish to the smell.

Taste - Wow is this one nice and smooth. Nice bitter start and a smooth citrus finish

Mouthfeel - This one was very smooth and almost tasted like it was on nitro.

Overall - This beer was a great. I was happily surprised with the trade and would love to get another sometime soon.

It's not much of a looker. Murky and dingy yellow. Looks like dirty pineapple juice. A little white head, but not much.

...but it smells delicious! Sticking with the pineapple theme, there's a lot of it sling with grapefruit, dragon fruit and/or kiwi.

Tropical flavors as stated above, but not as pronounced as the aroma. Grapefruit and dragon fruit, a nice combo of bitter and sweet.

Sticky and juicy mouthfeel. Leaves a sticky coating in my mouth.

English style IPA. Ha. Yeah, right. It's a juicy citrus and tropical American IPA, but I don't care.

Batch 286-287, Opened: 1/17/2014. 1 pint, 6 fl oz. 9%

Intriguingly opaque with deep reddish and golden colors like a fresh-pressed apple cider.

Chilled to 40 for two hours before opening.

Standard conical pint glass.

The head was light with fine to medium bubbles that faded to mostly a ring of microscopic bubbles around the edges within five minutes of pouring.

The initial nose was bright and citrusy with a strong earthy dankness

The taste was big on pink grapefruit, ripe melons, and sweet squash. Hints of toasted almond and raspberry jam.

Mouthfeel was big and full with a bready character. The finish was sweet that quickly faded to a long bitter and nutty craziness that lingered.

Subsequent topping off of the glass did not resurrect the head.
