Appearance: Pours with a nice bubble show that creates the full three fingers above the cloudy honey colored liquid; excellent retention and lacing

Smell: Gentle tropical fruit tones, with papaya and guava prominent and supported by mango, nectarine and melon

Taste: Papaya and guava forward; through the middle, the mango, nectarine and melon tones add complexity; moderate passion fruit bitterness, through the middle, with a dry but juicy finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really pleasant and refreshing APA that is just a shade away from an NE IPA

Thanks, marcrgrenier, for the opportunity

16Oz can purchased at the brewery and poured into a TH tulip. Hazy pineapple/peach look and peach/citrus nose. Flavor is definitely peach with hints of mango and grapefruit. Another excellent beer from TH that is refreshing and flavorful.

Sampling a cold 16 oz can that was canned on 8/23 and purchased at the brewery. Pouring into a snifter glass, The beer pours a hazy golden color with a creamy bleached white head of 2 cm foaming up. This foam fades to a wispy island and a sticky edge layer that leaves dense lattice after each sip.
The aroma is rich and hoppy with lots of fruit, including mango and peach with just a little bit of pine in the background, not sappy, just the fresh needles.
The first sip reveals a smooth textured medium bodied beer with fine tingly carbonation.
The flavor is a bit of bready malt but then moves to all fruit with peach and mango dominating and some orange coming through on the finish. I dont taste any of the relatively mild alcohol content and the beer is gone before I expected my glass to be empty.
Quite a tasty pale ale that has quite a bit of fruit. an enjoyable brew.
