L - thought this was the American IPA because the label is basically the same.... is it the same? In signature pioneer fashion, it pours a murky greenish brown. Not a whole lot of life here. Head foams up nicely, but huge gaping holes weaken the structure and it quickly comes tumbling down.

S - upfront is melon rind and apricot. A bit herbal and floral. Grassy and green, but worth some ripe sweetness on the finish. A little crackery.

T - not as burning as their other IPAs! Mellow and darkly juicy. Papaya and pineapple. Piney in hoppiness and mildly acidic. Leaves a grainy grassiness in the back of the mouth. Tropical and humid.

F - smooth and gushy at first, then the signature out of control fizz jumps in. Very airy and hard to swallow after the fact.

O - I like the flavors in this one. It's sweet and sticky, but with an acidic bite that brings me back to reality. Feels higher in ABV than it actually is. It is definitely a bit unrefined, but that's par for the course.
