Poured from can, golden yellow with big white head. Aroma of pine, tropical fruits, grain, grass. Taste is quite bitter & earthy, not the most balanced of IPAs. Medium body, lively carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright apricot color with a huge creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was gritty floral hops - intense. The flavor was strong fruity and floral hops - gritty, flower and intense. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

This beer was okay. The hop used was not my favorite. But does make me interested in trying other hopped versions.

Very tropical. Pours a nice golden color with foamy white head. Lots of citrus and flowery notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. Very light tasting. Crisp clean finish.

jgb9348 (5723) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Hazy golden coloured body with a thick, seven centimetre tall honey tan head. Aroma of pineapple, passionfruit, yeast, bread, alcohol, breadfruit and some funk. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral hops with a big perfumey bite and a strong malt backbone. Aftertaste shows some breadfruit, mango, pineapple and especially yeast - dry and herbal with hints of belgian spiciness. Overall, a very complex IPA with the hops showing a lot, but the yeast strain coupled with the malt make for a very nice, refreshing and entertaining beer! I don’t like giving good ratings to beers that are seemingly just reputation scores, but this one holds the mark and is impressive! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-April-2014.

Tropical breezes and island sand in the aroma. Tanned bikini bodies in the taste. I'm going to the Caribbean and taking some if this amazing brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Art (3151) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is of slight citrus and mostly grass. Taste is light bitterness with a little something sweet but different in the back. Although I am drinking this at 3 months old it has held up nicely.

scampycampy (39) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours golden orange with light/average carbonation and head. smell is not good. a foul, dank, fruity scent. However, the lively flavor of light hops and citrus comes through nicely with a light hop finish.
