Finally rating this one. Clear golden-orange color with white head. Aroma is huge tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, some apricot and grapefruit. Taste is straightforward fruity, little malt body, some spruce, low refreshing bitterness for an IPA. Carbonation is kicky, but not too high. A very refreshing and clean IPA with low residual sweetness. Nothing much to criticize, but not edgy enough to be a real winner. Still a perfect thirst-quencher. Wow, given the high availability and low price, why do I have this so rarely?

Hazy golden body, capped my a moderate white head. More complex than the first few sips let on. Has some bitterness, then tasted fruity, tropical sweet, than finishes with some piney bitterness on the swallow. Extremely quaffable. Really quite a good IPA that I would definitely stock up on if available in my area.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a taster showing cloudy mango orange with very light to light filtration.
A lot of apricot, mango, passion fruit, and guava with hints of pineapple on the nose. Mostly tropical fruit forward aromas at a very good intensity.
The palate is medium bodied with an almost gritty/chewable malt, very little bitterness, drinking more like a pale ale than an IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle.
Aroma - definite caramel tones from this one - with some hints of tropics.
Appearance - Hazy yellow coloring...almost appears as if there are partials floating.
Taste - Decent flavor for a 5.6% beer. Some nice lingering aftertastes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dorata pallida, limpida, schiuma bianca di media persistenza.
Aroma molto forte di passion fruit e lieve pompelmo, leggero maltato.
Al palato molto meglio che a naso, attacca dolce con passion fruit e malti chiari, successivamente bella nota di frumento, un po' di crosta di pane ed amaro erbaceo discretamente lungo unito ad una coda amara citrica.
Corpo leggero, molto carbonata, anche se non ne risente la sua bevibilità, molto buona.
Passion fruit anche nel retrolfatto.
