Bottle poured into a Drake's Brewing pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and laces very well.

S: Juicy sweet, bright citrus, lemon, lime, and tangerine, tropical fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, and mango, a little pine, a kinda dank herbal note, and just enough light caramel malt.

T: Pine and grapefruit lead the way, backed with more citrus, tangerine, lemon, and lime, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit, a little peppery spice, a faint kinda herbal dank note, and some light caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: I could smell this one all day long. I would be fine with drinking it all day as well. I love special release beers that pack this much flavor and aroma, but don't immediately shoot for being imperials with high %. Awesome beer!

Pours an orange gold color with a nice off white head that settles to a very thin lacing. Smell is definitely incredible: tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, orange, and some pine. Flavor is an immediate hop burst, with bitterness and resin for days. Pine almost overwhelms. Balanced by a sweet honey malt and a lot less tropical fruit than the nose, but it's present; a lot of bitter grapefruit pith which ideally would be slightly more juicy and less drying. A palate wrecker for only 6.7%. Great bitter hop forward California ipa.

There's an explosion of tropical, citrus flavor smells upon opening. However, the flavor is less intense with the addition of an underlying dankness and some resin added. Has a thick resiny mouthfeel and sticky lacing on the glass.
