Pours into an imperial pint glass a dull medium golden with a half finger white head that settles pretty quickly into a soapy-like mass.Tangerine and orange hop aromas jump out with some sweet biscuit malts also showing thru,light grassiness is detected as well.Tropical fruits on the palate with a grapefruit rind sharpness as well,quite a hefty mildly sweet biscuit malt base is there thru the finish.It's good but it's flavor profile is becoming the mainstream right now in the ipa craft world...in my opinion.

16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Faint haze on this pale golden hued brew, lacing puts on a great showing of rings down the glass after each sip. Smells of ripe tropical fruit, mildly dank, and faint melon rind. Lots of zest and resin on the palate, mild tropical fruit and citrus rind in the middle, finishes with more fruit resin. Quite warming for a 6.7% ABV brew, crisp and pretty dry with some crackery maltiness. A well made IPA, love the clarity and aggressive hop character.

Appearance - pours semi transparent golden color with nice white fluffy head that last a good bit. Sticky spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Light tropical fruit mango, orange and a touch of grapefruit. There also seems to be a very light malt sweetness as well.

Taste - Seems to be mostly a balance between grapefruit orange peel and bitter hops. The orange and grapefruit are up front and the hops are more toward the end. Well balanced nice taste.

Feel - Medium bodied prickly carbonation, dry bitter finish.

Overall - A well done IPA the fruit plays a part in the aroma but the hops stand out in the taste.
