Sap pouts a murky and dark golden yellow with a nicely formed 1-finger head that dissipates with spotty lacing. The smell is big and juicy with tropical and citrus with grapefruit, orange, pineapple and mango with an earthy hop bite including some fruit rind. A mild bitterness up front that gives way to a wave of juicy fruits. Signature, Tree House, the mouthfeel is excellent with the fruit flavors from the nose.

Thanks to Brutalfarce for this one. 16oz can (of course) poured into 14oz teku. Poured an almost murky, I could just barely see my fingers through it, brownish-orange color with about an inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma led off with an earthy hop scent, with no appreciable malt or grain showing. pretty similar on the tongue, with the added bonus of just a hint of hop bitterness to get ones attention.

The body was the average light that typifies the style. Drinkability was fine, no issues there. Overall, a solid example of the style. If you like these types of beers, you'll likely like this one.

Juicy fruit nose with some pith/rind on the back end
full bodied but not viscous, sweet at first then tropical fruits with bitter and dry finish,
Another great one from Tree House

Many thanks to Knapp85 for this can!

A - Hazy / opaque medium orange gold color with thick soapy white lacing. The foam is very sticky oh the sides of the glass.

S - Juicy tropical fruit nose with grapefruit and mango in the forefront.

T - Sweet grapefruit and mango from start to finish with some pineapple in the middle. Ends with a lingering sappy, resiny pine bitterness to balance out the finish.

M - Thick, full bodied, and a little bit chewy. Coats the mouth with a healthy layer of fruit rind and leaves a cotton-like sensation on the palate.

O - This is an outstanding IPA that's worthy of the hype.

A:Light Orange and nice haziness. one finger on too and lace down nicely.
S:Tangelin, aplicott, and light orange aromas.
T:Tropical fruits juiciness. ABV is 7% but never feel it.
M:Light Carbo.Smooth. Med to light body. No pungent, eccentrik, stimulus notes at all.

But gaian, smooth, well balanced and not contest with Hops. Wao. This IPA is quite unique.
O:Easy to drink. Nice complexity. Mild, fluffy after taste.
