Mango and lots of sharp pine. Seems like some of their others Iíve had tonight are better but this is still quite good. Amber slightly hazy pour with ol lacing, not much head. Very bitter finish. Tap at brewpub.

NikkTwist (2766) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Clear deep gold pour with a solid top of beige foam. Nice lace. Fragrant tropical resins. Pineapple rind. Mango stems. Apple cores. Heart of palm. Tree sap. Plantains. Guava. Autumn leaves. Great taste and aroma but the body has a slightly off-putting watery gelatin mouthfeel. Hops are big but ABV is well hidden. Balanced malts. Well worth having.

mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma is fairly sweet, with notes of citrus hops, caramel bready malt and residual sweetness. Flavour is well-balanced, with lots of piney hops, some resin and sweet caramel bready malt. Fairly abrasive but in a good way. Very nice hop monster.

ACHops (1371) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2016
On tap @ Fat Headís PDX. Pours clear medium copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light caramel malt; followed by dank juicy hops, grapefruit and grass standout. Taste is sweet caramel malt, thick coating mouthfeel; dank, bitter hops; mango, pine, and resin notes standout. Really nice IPA, I liked this a bit more than Semper FIPA.

Hanuta06 (446) - Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Serving: from tap at Fat Headís Brewery Aroma: heavy pine hop. Appearance: very small, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-amber body. Taste: moderately bitter, citrusy initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good. Nice balance.

luttonm (4719) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Draft at Chuckís CD. Amber-tinted gold, small foam. At first glance this has more malt-amber, biscuity than Iíd usually like but juicy, strong balancing hops rise quickly. Alc, metallic bitter, full and finishes very crisp. I dig it.
