Pours a mostly clear deep gold with a small white head. Smells of tropical fruits, hops, and malt. Tastes of slightly bitter hops, passion fruit, grapefruit zest, some maltiness, other tropical fruits, and a little sweetness. Medium in both body and carbonation. Overall a surprisingly delicious pale ale.

Draft from a taster glass at WL.

A: bright gold with off-white head and better lacing than others in the flight. Low visible carb.

S: for billing itself as tropical I get very little nose at all. Some generalized hoppiness and more malt balance than the others.

T: citrus and piney/resinous. Pleasant without excessive bitterness or astringency.

M: basically indistinguishable from Hi-5 IPA in texture; lighter mid-weight and pretty clean.

O: ho hum, another excellent IPA (masquerading as a pale).

This is certainly a fruity APA. I got a heavy dose of pineapple and mango here, along some bitter hops to balance it out somewhat. It wasn't sweet, like a juice would be, so the hops did their job. I would have expected a slightly lower ABV here, but even so, you could have a few of these on a warm summer night.

12 oz can at the 2017 Fall ASMF.
Hazy copper colored body with a weak head that leaves minimal lacing. Coarse carbonation bubbles. Mild fruity aroma with a stronger, danker, fruity flavor. Both grapefruit and passion fruit can be detected.
Medium body.
