Really easy to drink for a 10% TIPA and alcohol doesn't show through in the profile much.

Tastes an smells exactly as advertised with ripe and rich mosiac and citra supported by a hefty sweet grain bill. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Well done.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a moderately hazy, medium golden amber with a one finger white head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma of pale malt, citrus and tropical fruit hops, orange, grapefruit, mixed tropical fruit and a touch of dankness. Flavor is pale malt, tropical and citrus hops, orange, tanerine, lemon, mango and a little pineapple. Somewhat resinous citrus rind bitterness in the finish with fleeting fruit esters. Medium bodied with light to medium creaminess; solid body. Well when I saw the can listed Citra and Mosaic hops, I thought "WC style IPA", but the pour was more like a hazy NE style and that was enhanced by the aroma, which has a lot of tropical notes in it. And this turns out to be one of the IPAs I like to end up with when I see a hazy in my glass: a hybrid IPA that has tropical fruit, which can be different and interesting, but with some solid citrus and real bitterness. This is a little tame of the bitterness scale, but plenty to keep my interest and prevent it from being fruit juice. The malt is supportive, but not barleywine dense like many triple IPAs. For an IPA with a very familiar listed hop bill, the flavor is a bit more complex and interesting, which I suppose is due to the Mosaic. A nice introduction to a brewery I have never seen before. I'll try them again.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a bright, yellowish / orange color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, very long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of tropical fruit, hops, malt, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a lot of tropical fruit (papaya and some mango as well), a good shot of hops (not overpowering, but they make their presence known), and a decent bit of citrus fruit (orange and a hint of lemon as well). This is a sweet and fruity, yet quite hoppy flavor. Delicious and lively.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An excellent and well made beer. Drinkable.
