4/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a cloudy, yellow-orange body with minimal head and lace. The aroma is mostly tropical fruit with some earthy hops as well. Thick-bodied beer with a heavy booziness that leaks into the beer, but still get a great amount tropical and grapefruit sweetness (mostly on the grape side) with a touch of malty sweetness as well. Slow sipping beer that is enjoyable and smooth but just a tad too boozy for me.

Pours a murky bright orange color. Tons of citrus, oranges, light lactose, tropical fruits, and fruity malts. Medium body and low carbonation, super easy to drink.

A great IPA.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a nice citrus aroma. Very smooth for a 10.5% ABV. A delicious beer but a little thin on the mouthfeel compared to others I've tried. Still a great beer overall.

Pours a hazy light straw color, minimal head. Really big tropical hop aroma: pineapple, mango, apricot. Very sweet, lots of tropical fruits, don’t care for all the sweetness from the lactose addition. Carbonation is appropriate. Overall a very good beer that is lessened by an unnecessary lactose addition.
Would not buy again.
