12oz. canned on 08/29/16

Pours clear amber gold with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like fresh pineapple, grapefruits, papaya, mango, guava, orange citrus, dark toffee caramel malts, with resinous floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like resinous pine sap, dark toffee caramel malts, with dank bitter floral earthy herbal grass, some pineapple, grapefruit, papaya, mango, guava, and orange citrus peel. Feels medium bodied, creamy and full with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.

Very hazy orange body with short lived white head. Aroma: sweet but very hoppy, some citrus & bitter orange peel. I didn't think I was going to like this but I was wrong, it is not overly hoppy & bitter. The taste is sweet, salty & a little bitter with grapefruit & tangerine & pine. Maybe a little to salty. Pretty good.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Not much Head. Nice lacing. Nose of citrus, not too orangy. Slightly, ever so slight astringent. Nice west coast bitter, sweet, citrusy hoppy. A little more subtle than some. Very nice.
