COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It drips with tropical, sunshiny Mosaic, and twinkles with touches of Eldorado and Centennial. A touch of wheat hazes the malt bill a bit around the edges and the IBUs are stuck in the mid-sixties. SG 16•P/1.064

Draft at Fields before the Ms game today. Clearish amber pour. Aroma: quite a bit of pine mixed with citrus (grapefruit and hints of tropical goodness). Taste: light sweetness, malts (biscuit; a hint of caramel) take backseat to big resinous citrus hop vehicle here. Rather bitter finish, borderline astringent. Overall: nice ipa, great way to pregame, my wife approves.

On tap. Pours a clear gold with moderate foamy head. Aromas of grapefruit, toffee, and tropical fruit. Flavors of tropical fruit, nectarines, and citrus. Very fruity but with a long bitter finish. Really nice.

Very citrusy, point marked down to almost no aroma, very mild grapefruit. Decent pillowy head, pale golden with some lazy carbonation. Taste comes on strong with the citrus, very smooth, abrupt finish.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint, 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 6.5% abv and there is a brief description of the beer. Appearance: The body has a light golden color with good clarity (the second glass was very hazy) and some active carbonation. Sitting on top is a thick just off white head which settles down to a wispy thin film covering that laces up the edge of the glass. Some of which hangs on the sides of the glass.Smell: The aroma is a little light overall but it has very nice juicy and fruity hops over pale bready maltiness. Pineapple and canned fruit cocktail notes stand out.Taste / Palate: The flavor is packed with sweet juicy hops backed by supportive light bready malt sweetness. It has notes of pineapple juice with canned fruit cocktail (peaches, pears, green grapes, about 3 cherries per can and sugar water syrup) and a splash of lemony citrus. This turns to citrusy hop bitterness in the finish which lingers for just a short time. I like that it doesn?t linger too long. It just helps to remind me that this is an IPA and should take another sip. The body and carbonation feel just right and very drinkable.

The only negative is the bottle price. Other than that, it tastes beautifully, florally, hoppy.

Draught @ Brouwers Cafe:   Nice combination of pith and bright floral notes.   Big hoppy nose, same on the tongue.   Pretty bright and citrusy.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Solid IPA.

Not a bad IPA. Tropical fruit smells and flavours. Nice Mosiac hops. The finish is on the herbal, earthy side. A nice IPA if you not into the intense flavours. Herbal finish is unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance has a nice hazy glossed over orange to light brown color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly subsided to leave a light lacing forming all around the glass. The smell has a nice tropical fruitiness turning to some light oranges and tangerines glossing over some super light caramel tones. The taste was mainly bitter through the fruity hops and yet still added a nice sweet to spicy conglomeration of hops to malts. The aftertaste was a pounding bitter spiciness eradicating my tastebuds of anything remotely refreshing - holy dryness Batman. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Its hard to determine how sessionable this one is because of how dry this comes across, but for now I’ll say its somewhat sessionable as long as I have some water on the side. Overall, this was a good AIPA for the most part, but its way drier than expected. I’d have this again.
