On tap, 12 ounce serving.

Partly cloudy sun orange color, 1f white foamy cap. Sheet lacing.

Aromas lean to orange citrus and light tropics like melon and mango.

Sweet pineapple and orange flavored. Slightly dank alcohol.

Bittersweet in a good way. A bit boozed and sugary.

Pretty good 8.5% abv DIPA.

Pours a medium golden with white head. A little bit of unripe mango and orange on the nose. It's not particularly fragrant. Papaya forward with a bit of mango and tangerine combo. A little bit of herbaceous pineapple on the finish. It's very tropical fruit forward, not a lot of grounding bitterness or anything of that sort. That's not necessarily a problem, but it lacks some of the complexity I value in my favorite DIPAs.

A good IPA. Pours light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is mild hop floral. Taste is also mild hoppy and pleasant. Feel is good, smooth and clean. Overall it's a worth IPA.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cantaloupe melon are present in teh nose along with notes of banana and pineapple.
T: The taste follows the smell and has little to no bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied, rather smooth and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has nice aromas and flavors of tropical fruits imparted by the HBC 638 hops.

From a month-old can, pours a very hazy orange with a nice off-white head of foam. Smell has dank, catty Citra, pine resin and tropical fruits. Really good beer.
