Pours a deep clear amber with finger thick head. Good head retention throughout. Smell is of dank hops. Some malty sweetness. Taste is malty sweetness with tropical fruit. Bitterness comes through on the back end. It is a little syrupy/oily with some alcohol burn. A lot going on and not as balanced as I would like.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a clear texture. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that lasted a good amount of time. excellent lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of hops, light tropical fruit, and citrus fruit as well.

T: Tasted of a bit of citrus fruit (grapefruit, in particular), some light malt notes, some minor tropical fruit notes, a fair amount of hops, and some pine. For the most part, this is a solid flavor, but it's not as robust as I would have liked. Still, there's a nice interplay between the hops, malt, and fruit ingredients here.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a hoppy, lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, this is a drinkable beer. It has its issues, but it's worth a look.
