I'm trying this beer at my good friend and old neighbor house in the 'Wego. The beer poured a hazy yellowish with thin white head that not leaving any lace. The scent had peach, tangerine and other medley of fruit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with peach and tropical fruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on July 7, 2019. Brewed with a boatload of Citra and Mosaic hops. Notes of orange, peach, blueberry and pine.

The look was hazy and orange. The smell was very nice, grapefruit, orange, lime, and a little blueberry. The taste was lots of fruit up front and very tropical. Maybe a slight bit of pine at the end but it hides the 8.5% ABV very well. Medium bodied and finishes dry. Very impressed with this beer.

Hazy orange body with white foam cap that settles into lacing. Passion fruit, pineapple, pine, peach, lemon and soap. Taste is fruity, melon, passion fruit, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, and star fruit, with pine and slight hop bitterness, but the super fruitiness is a touch soapy. Feel is thin, slightly sweet, and has some decent hop textures. Ok

16oz can, date stamped 062419. Bright opaque yellow-orange body with a thin foamy white head. Tropical fruit aroma hinting at passion fruit, peach, pineapple, and pine. Hop forward in flavor with grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, peach, lemon, and blueberry notes. Soft carbonation, medium body, alcohol is well concealed; semi-dry modestly bitter finish. I wanted to like this more - it's good but seemed like it was missing something. Still very refreshing and flavorful though.
