Pours deep copper. Nose is big citrus with a faint malt and fresh milled grain presence. Palate has a great malty start followed by tons of tropical fruit and Citra bitterness. A beautiful IPA

(draft @ The D Bar - The D Hotel and Casino - Las Vegas, NV) Cloudy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Heavy citrus aroma with a lot of grassy hops under it. Flavor is lots of grapefruit and citrus notes with a light bitterness under that and a very nice and lingering citrus finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. The beer is a cloudy burnt orange, with a thin white head that shrinks down rather quickly and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit up front. Pineapple, mango, and papaya come to mind. There is also a fairly resinous pine aroma and a honey like sweetness to round it out. Flavor is similar. Tropical fruit hits you right away, as well as citrus, mainly tangerine and grapefruit. There is a somewhat caramel like sweetness that mixes in with all of the fruit flavors that rounds off the beer nicely. Mouthfeel is slightly thin and very juicy. The beer is super quenching and the reasonable ABV of 6.4% means that I can session these all day long. This is an outstanding IPA.

Fruity aroma starts with orange and lemons and comes on strong with mango and grapefruit. Mango is by far the most unique feature to this beer. Gives it a creamy tongue feel and a balanced, sweet sipping profile. Great summery beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma is delicious, with hops present but behind the distinct odor of fresh Apricot or maybe passion fruit? Strongest fruit flavor Iíve nosed in an IPA. Small white head dissipates quickly, leaves little lacing. Taste is sweet, hoppy, and fruity. A nice flavor balance. Smooth palate with soft carbonation. Finish is nice and bitter, not too much so and softened by noticeable malt. This is a very good beer.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam, and beautiful sheets of lacing. Good retention. The aroma has nice tropical fruit character and a biscuity character as well. Taste is moderately sweet and fruity, and finishes mildly bitter. Medium body and medium carbonation. Very good beer.
