A tropical beer to warm your soul and welcome higher temperatures! Pours a dark orange with a lasting head. Grapefruit and citrus with a pineapple sweetness and a slight sharp aftertaste. A nice balance between sweet and bitter. Nicely carbonated and resonates in the mouth. Great Lakes has created one nice DIPA, just sip slowly...this one is very good and very strong! Can't wait to see the new label for this one!
