Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma is dank and hoppy with some malt in the background. Taste has earthy/resiny hops with a harsh bitterness on the finish with yellow grapefruit pith flavor.

Enjoyed this at the Copenhagen beer festival. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a glass a nice hazy golden hue with a fluffy two finger white head that faded very, very slowly to leave sticky lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of big pineapple and orange notes. Lots of tropical aromas as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Loads of pineapple and oranges, great tropical notes. Super bright.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was a very nicely done IPA from Florida. I really enjoyed the tropical notes going on here. Enjoyed it.

Serving Type: On Tap

Poured on tap at the brewpub, the beer is a hazy, gold coloring, with a foamy, clingy, white head. Nose of grapefruit, berries, evergreen, and dried grass. Flavors are tangy sweet fruit juice forward, with notes of grapefruit, kiwi, passion fruit, and lemon, with a piney and mossy hops character, and a solid astringency at the end. Light, watery body, with a tart and astringent aftertaste. The finish is smooth, light, and very dry. Unique flavor profile. I like it.

Golden amber with a moderate foam head.

Tropical aromas mix with less tropical fruits, like apple or grape, and even some dark fruit, like a brighter type of fig.

Oaty grains with pine come forward in the flavor.

Feels a bit heavier in the flavor, but not in the texture, it's a unique combination.
