Poured from a can into a pint glass. Appears golden with lots of carbonation and bubbles sticking to the glass. Aroma is sweet with lots of pineapple, lime, and lemon. Taste is initially clean and crisp but is followed by resin and bitterness. The beer really coats the mouth, leaving an oily texture. Overall, an IPA which smells great and tastes ok.

Picked this up at Julio's a few days after release but haven't gotten around to drinking it.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a hazy golden orange with a half finger white head that fades to leave a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of pungent tropical hops. Little bit of pineapple, nice grapefruit notes and citrus. Very bright nose with a light malt backbone.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Nice pleasant tropical notes, little bit of pineapple/mango, good grapefruit bitterness and flesh. Somewhat juicy, light malt sweetness. The bitter grapefruit wants to leave more of a potent bitter finish but it never gets quite to that point. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall, this was a delicious IPA. Really, really nicely crafted with some lovely tropical notes going on.

Pours a decent creamy almost 1 finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, touches of lacing, hazy murky bright carrot orange color.

Nose brings bright tropical fruit hops, some mango, mild papaya, citrus orange juice, clementine, orange cream, mild sweet creamy malt base, lots of juicy tropical fruits, reminds me a lot of Tree House Green.

Taste brings more hops, some grassy spicy hops out front, with lots of citrus and mild tropical fruits again, some papaya and little mango, orange creamy notes and creamy malt base, some citrus rind and pith notes, some fruity bubblegum. Then the hops get quite spicy and a little piney, sap like, probably Mosaic hops as they start nice and tropical citrus but get grassy and pine sap earthy spicy. Ick. Finish is quite bitter, lingering, a little astringent, lingering grassy earthy pine and sap, a little orange zest, etc.

Mouth is med bod, decent carbonation.

Overall eh, started quite nice, then turned bad, like typical mosaic, and lots of bleh.

Smells like sticking your head in the tropical fruit section at a grocery store. Well balanced, not overly bitter.
