L - Like a slightly hazier pilsner color followed by a nice inch of froth
S - Sadly my nose isn't picking much up, all the flavor is in the mouth for me
T - Opens up with a lemon mouthful and leads into grapefruit bitterness
F - Very smooth hop bitterness and full of flavor

Approx 3 week old bottle poured into a Teku. Beautiful beer IMO - hazy but not turbid with a golden glow and a foamy white head that left nice laces in the glass. Medium-intensity tropical aromas - pineapple, mango, tangerine. The taste followed closely with the above tropical flavors but also a clean and lingering bitterness more in line with old school IPAs, which is fine by me. I got a bit of aspirin on the finish. Light-bodied and maybe a bit too dry, but really drinkable. Outstanding.

Poured into a Teku glass, a slightly hazy orange/yellow color with a moderate white head which had decent retention. The aroma wasn't so strong for me, but I'm getting notes of citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit. The taste followed the nose, but magnified: loads of citrus, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, a bit of pithy bitterness at the end. The feel is light carbed, medium-light bodied, and it is very drinkable- extremely light for a 7.3% IPA. Not necessarily the juiciest IPA I've ever had, but incredibly drinkable and tasty.

Appearance - Pours hazy burnt orange with foamy white head. Spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Huge mango aroma along with some orange and pineapple. Light malt and a hint of alcohol.

Taste - Light mango and orange, nice hop bite just the right amount of bitter and juicy tropical fruit.

Feel - Medium bodied soft carbonation with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Very balanced beer the hops play well with the topical fruit very easy drinking.

Poured a cloudy, hazy yellow body with one-finger head that leaves lace ring down glass. Aroma has some tropical fruit (pineapple) qualities as well as some hints of grapefruit and bitterness. Smooth body but has a fluffy fullness to it that makes it a fuller beer with a good tropical fruit (this time mango) sweetness and minor bitterness and back in for clean crisp finish.

On tap at brewery:
Pours very hazy, but I can see almost through the beer at the bottom of the spiegelau glass. Head is a tight froth that supplies blobs of lacing early, streams further down the glass.

The nose is not too powerful, but fits in with the profile of a juicy IPA. Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple with a little bit of pithy bitterness.

Taste follows with the juice, orange, tangerine, grapefruit rind; to a lesser degree mango rind and maybe some pineapple. This isn't powerfully juicy or tart, as the malts seem to have a slightly balancing effect with their whole grain cracker to cereal notes. A light spice bite grabs my tongue, as the carbonation is too light to be the culprit. A medium bodied beer that ends with a pine wood to pithy bitterness.

A very enjoyable beer that probably goes into the I'm-just-making-it-up as I go along style of unfiltered IPA. Doesn't quite grab the feel or the strong/juicy nose of the NE IPA sub-style. But that's fine with me.
