From a can dated Batch 55 10/18/17. Pours a slightly cloudy, Amber golden yellow with a lasting head. Nice nose of tropical fruit and dankness. Similar palate with a dry hoppy finish. Very enjoyable.

Tall can, BATCH 55, 11/06/17 printed on the can

Nice looking pour, medium hazed, lighter almond amber, under a lasting and frothy cap. Leaves behind great looking fine sheeting.

Nose here is of the typical tropical fruits.

Tasty IPA, with more pineapple, more oranges, more tropical fruity goodness. Smooth, flavorful and delicious, with a drying hop finish that lasts and lasts...Well wort a try.

On tap at the Tip Tap Room into a shaker. Slightly hazy, dull darkish gold, 1 finger foamy head, very good lacing. Nose brings floral and ripe tropical notes, with a little dank weed that adds a nice little twist. Taste brings less weed, more pineapple, but still a little something that is kind of earthy...and much appreciated. Finish is fairly wet and a little loose...good but not quite up to a full match with other parts. Glad to have tried this one. Lots of good stuff here.

From the can clearly labeled Batch 55 - 10/19/17. Sampled November 15, 2017.

Golden pour with a slight haze. Modest fading white head.

Aroma of pineapple, juice, and a little pine. Feint white bread character under that.

Medium and slightly astringent body.

The taste begins sweet and hoppy with a vibrant bitterness to finish. Pineapple seems subdued in the taste unlike the nose.

Poured into a 16 Snulip glass canned on 10/20/17. Pours a very attractive yellow orange, fairly hazey with loads of thick lace left behind.

Smell is herbal, earthy, guava, pineapple, and some grapefruit rind.

Taste folllows herbal earthy hops, guava, pineapple, tangerine, and a little bitter grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is medium, plenty of life, juicy not dry, but a slight sticky Hop feel, and goes down very easy and drinks much bigger than its ABV.

Overall once again this Brewery brings it, a very nice fairly sessionable IPA.

Had on tap at the brewery. Poured a hazy golden color with a half inch white head that left ample lacing. Smells of tropical fruits with a hint of citrus. Tastes of pineapple, mango, orange rind, pine and spices. Finishes with mild bitterness and slightly dry. Light bodied, too light IMO, lightly carbonated, mouth feel is on the watery side.

Hazed gold with several fingers of white head that leave solid lacing.

Pleasant aroma of pineapple and butterscotch. A hint of vanilla as well.

The taste starts with a watered down juiciness that matches the nose -- tropical fruit and a hint of butterscotch -- but with a herbaceous spiciness added to the mix, and a bitter backend of light pine and citrus rind that leaves a fairly clean, dry impression.

Relatively light bodied with just enough prickly carbonation.

Nice mix of flavors in this batch, but maybe a tad watery to my taste. Could benefit from a bit more heft and creaminess, IMO. 10/20/17 canned on date.
