The aroma is strongly of pineapple/kiwi with some yeast as well. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a decent maltiness and a mildly tart finish. A unique IPA, the heavy tropical fruit flavor makes it stand out.

Irresponsible tick #1

A) Deep amber with honey cloudiness. A thin layer of foam holds across the top. A few decent-sized rings of lace with drippy trails between.

S) The nose finds grapefruit, orange peel, pine, toasted grain, grass and, as it warms, peach.

T) Tastes of dry grapefruit and pine, and it has a lingering bitterness: harsh; nearly aspirin-like. Dusty biscuit in the background.

M) Medium body tilts in favor of the lighter side toward the finish. Appropriately average carbonation.

D) It's ok, but the finish is a downer.
