Solid offering from Bissell, but does not come close to Tree House. It lacks dimensions and creaminess. Yellow pale murkiness with white head. Citrus and lemon grass. Only hints of tropics. Falls flat and monotone on the feel and flavor. All things considered, my palate has become very critical and only compare it to the best that I have had. I would drink this everyday if I could, but for a special occasion there are some better beers out there.

Tasted from can. Pours a super murky pale yellow with thick white head. Aroma is citrusy with lots of lemon some tropical fruits and grassy aromas. Super well balanced taste. Passionfruit, pineapple, lemon, melon, biscuits, caramel. Awesome IPA that doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks Blue_Rogue. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a glazed over yellow/slight orange color. The head dissipated immediately. Light lacing stuck only around the glass. The smell had a wonderful sweet to lightly spiced combination of raw piney and grapefruit. Adequately enthralled with the substance of the bitter sweet citrus hops, a light burst of sweet onion runs into the aroma and blends wonderfully. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and amplifies to flavor. There’s no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation hits like a good DIPA should but still isn’t overbearing. A lingering semi - soft bitter dryness rolls over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a very good DIPA that I would love to have again.
