poured a 12oz bottle into snifter.

A - Light amber and orange with a decent 2 finger white head. Good retention that dies to a thin collar. Spotty lacing decorates my glass.

S - The aroma is quite tropical with pineapples, passion fruit, and mango. I also pick up some faint citrus of orange and grapefruit along with some sweet honey drenched bread.

T - The hops stand out with juicy mango, grapefruit, and orange flavor. Other tropical fruits reveal themselves a bit later with the honey covered bread. The finish is bitter pine and grapefruit.

M - Medium body with ample carbonation that is bitter and dry.

O - Tyranena has been on a roll lately and releasing so many awesome beers. This is one of the better IIPAs I have had and their best IIPA to date.

Nice amber with a creamy, nearly white head that leaves thick patches along the entire length of the glass
Very faint lilac.
Malty sweetness quickly replaced by a bitter finish that can't wait to start.
Smooth but relentless. Sustained finish.
Definitely worth a try.

Pours a medium amber with a 1 inch head that slowly dissipates leaving nice lacing. Smell is muted citrus and slight hops. Taste has a good deal of citrus with a slightly bitter hop finish. Very good beer.
