Pours a hazy golden in color with a finger+ of pillowy white head that lasts quite awhile and leaves behind decent lacing. Aroma is citrusy and tropical; orange, mango, and other indistinct tropical fruits. Taste is very interesting, it's light with smooth tropical fruits, orange, tangerine, and an lightly earthy note just before the finish. Light in body with moderate carbonation. Overall I find myself a bit conflicted about this beer but overall I enjoy the whole much more than the individual parts. The body is too thin for the ABV and the flavors are a touch muted but I'm still rather enjoying this.

Pours a deep gold with a white head. Some lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma is a weak orange rind with some malts present. Taste is okay..it tastes like your average IPA...some citrus..some floral..maybe some earthiness? Not a huge fan of whatever this hop combination. Feel is soft and somewhat dryer than most IPA's. Overall, this beer will quickly fade in my memory with all of the other IPAs which don't have any great memorable characteristics. (But no bad ones either.)

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. The beer pours with a murky orange appearance, a thin ring around the glass, and really nice lacing on the sides. Aromas include some light pine hops mixed with grapefruit and mango. Taste generally follows the nose with some bitter citrus wrapped around some earthy hops. Mouthfeel is good with a crisp carbonation. Overall, I liked how this beer looked and felt.

12 oz. bottle

Pours slightly hazy golden amber orange with a dense creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like mango, papaya, guava, melon, orange, grapefruit, berry, pineapple, caramelized bready crackery grain, with earthy herbal grass and dank floral pine. Tastes slightly bitter and resinous with grapefruit, orange citrus, mango, papaya, melon, guava, some pineapple, blueberry, caramelized bready crackery grains, with earthy herbal grass and dank floral pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.

Golden copper color, average sized white foam, dissipates pretty quick, plenty of left over lace.
Very sweet honey like malt, sweet tropical fruity hops aroma mostly.
The flavor showcases a big, ripe tropical fruity hop taste, fat grain bill with plenty of malt backbone. In fact, the malt is present, rides right aling side some pretty big fruity hops. Citrus and slightly sour notes ride in later on with a big, dry, bitter finish.
Feel is a medium body, sharp, crisp and dry effect to finish.
Earthy undertones, grainy but a decent balance of malt/hops makes this seem like a big English style IPA.
