A: A yellow orange amber in color with a large white head. Lots of chunky floaties in the brew.

S: Tropical fruit. Smells like pineapple, and mango juice. Smells more like fruit juice than beer.

T: Tastes like a tropical fruit shandy made with an IPA. Bitterness has a real rough edge to it, which fights the sweet juice feel. Feels a bit out of whack.

M: Medium light in bod with fairly high carbonation, with some lingering carbonic bite, and some bitterness.

O: This one is a miss for me. The bitterness is a little abrasive in comparison to the sweet fruit flavors.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Sick'n'Twisted tulip

L: Hazed golden amber pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Tropical fruits and citrusy hops. Mildly floral.

T/F: Light malts and sweet tropical fruits. Modest bitterness... pineapple and guava mingled with grapefruit and tangerine rind. Mild peach/mango in there as well. Light bodied... some floral character. Slick on the tongue. The finish is bittersweet hops.

O: A solid tropical forward IPA. Very good flavor and drinkability.

Saw this can at Wegmans and decided to give it a chance on a hot summer day. Nice citrus smell but I wouldn’t call this a fruity beer. A very solid IPA. Kind of juicy and hoppy. Very easy to drink on a hot summer day. I liked it a lot
