Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

A good and pleasing brew. It has a deep golden amber color. It pours with minimal foam, giving very little head. It has a subtle hops taste, maybe a little light, but certainly not an overbearing pungent flavor. The taste is lingering, delightful followed by a pleasing finish. Certainly what I call a nice summer brew.

Poured into a clear glass. Very hazy, rich pineapple-orange color and a think head.

Smells like tangerine, mango, and pineapple along with other citrusy notes.

Very spicy and dry hop-wise, with grapefruit and orange peel obvious. Smooth.

Pretty good!

Thanks Tracy. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a nice transparency about it. A two finger white foamy head dissipated after about a minute. Fairly thick foamy lacing stuck nicely around the glass. The smell had a deep sweet citrus to piney sweet and bitter grapefruit. A nice sweet caramel allocates itself nicely in the background. The taste was mainly sweet but carried a nice settling bitterness to round out the flavor. A nice sweet sticky fruity aftertaste leads into the finish, it’s not as dry as the can says so but that doesn’t bother me. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. For an AIPA, the carbonation seemed to be a tad lighter than expected but still worthy. Overall, this was a nice AIPA that comes across a bit smoother than expected. I’d have it again.

Very fresh, bitter finish with fruity hints. Crush a 6 pack of this and you'll be speaking the truth

Another courtesy of Grizzarky's NBS BIF #5 box o goodies. 12oz can poured into 10oz goblet. Canned on date of 1/25/17. Poured a lightly hazy (actual hazy, not opaque like orange juice) straw-yellow-gold color, with a bit more than a quarter inch of white head that had moderate retention and lacing.

A nice citrusy hop blast came out at the crack of the can. Very light malt undertone. Big grapefruit/citrus bite on the tongue, with just a bit of grain for contrast.

Body was the the typical medium for the style. Drinkability was very good, my can was too quickly. Overall, a very nice example of the style, and one I would drink with some regularity if it were available to me. Worth having if you see it.
