Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Poured from a small growler. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a slight head that dissipates to a light ring around the glass. Aroma of light caramel and pale malt, citrus, lightly dank hops, mildly floral. Flavor is caramel malt, lots of tropical fruit led by pineapple, citrus and piney hops, light onion. Finishes with nice lingering fruit forward and piney hops, an odd combination of seeming mildly hopped, but leaving fairly intense herbal hop flavors in its wake. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Really lives up to its name, lots of tropical fruit as well as the more West Coast pine and citrus flavors. A bit sneaky, it doesn't taste that hoppy up front, but leaves intense residual hoppiness and flavor. This is quite good. It showed up right at fresh hop season, so I put off trying it, but I'm glad I did. It is well made, very flavorful and makes me want to try other ales from this brewery. Nicely done.

Great bitter IPA but a bit of a thick feel on the after taste. A very good contender for when my local pizza pub is out of my favorite IPA (Drake's)
