Very tasty. The fruity hops sure do stand out on the nose and initial taste. Finishes malty and smooth. Quite delicious, actually!

Pours golden with ample bone white head. Excellent clarity and decent lace. Mostly tropical nose, pungent mango, light peach, and faint ripe blueberry. Flavor is similar, mango, papaya, strawberry, blueberry, peach, lightly buttery biscuit sweetness, mildly bitter, resiny finish. Another ipa thatís all about hop flavor over hop bitterness (my preference). Awesome stuff.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice on the eyes, with a crisp copper color and a medium beige head. Light lacing. Nose is light notes of citrus and pine. Crisp, yet hearty mouthfeel with an understated flavor which matches the nose. A great beer that goes down waaay too easily...

A copper beer with a small white head. The aroma is pine with big citrus and tropical fruit. The flavor is citrus and bitter piney hops.

Draught. Pours a dark amber color with a very small head on it. Nose is very fresh with some great citrusy grapefruit notes to it. Taste is light and refreshing, with just a bit of bitterness to it. Very pleasant drink.

Holy aroma of tropical fruits! Poured into a shaker. Light amber and very bright. Bitterness is well balanced by a hint of caramel. Canít get away from the juice like nature of this beer.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a tumbler. Reddish amber and clear with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, tropical fruit, pine, herbs, rye and spices. Similar flavor, zesty and crisp with medium bitterness. Average body with a dry finish. Pretty fresh and tasty.

This is a very tasty beer, not at all what you expect from a typical IPA. Easy drinking, citrusy, dry...has that clean Deschutes water profile. Perhaps the best example of a fresh hop beer iíve had.

Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Bright, beaming copper with excellent clarity, fully filtered levels with a thick, bubbly, chunky eggshell cap that leaves lots of webbing behind. Aroma is very nice; mildly abrasive, sticky pines, woodsy hop leaves, like sniffing a tree. Earthy, faintly herbal, slightly ashy hop notes backed up by some ripe mangoes & tangerines, appearing both tropical & citric all at once. Malt is more noticeable on the palate, toasted bready & just faintly sweet, but providing good balance to the hops. More tropical with lots of mango, pineapple, & guava-esque tones. Slight orange peel back-end with an earthy, ashy, herbaceous finish. Awesome IPA... why is this is single bottles & not six packs?

(Backlog) 22 oz bottle. The look is clear, decent eggshell colored head, and copper in color. The smell is hops, fruits, tropical fruit mix, pear, and nice. The taste is a medium nice bitterness, hops, really fruity from pear to grapefruits, touch of sweetness but really
