Bomber. Great nose of piney, grassy, bitter hops. A little caramel malt in there, too. Flavor does not back up the big nose, unfortunately. Muted notes of grass, citrus. Was expecting alot more from this beer, esp after reading all the hype. Not bad, though.

Tap at Marciero. Deep blond color. Lots head, slightly cloudy, orange tints. Nose of peach, mango, melon, bread. Interesting nose with lots of stone and tropical fruit but not much citrus notes. Bready, fruity flavor that got nicer and nicer as it opened up and warmed. Original and tastety.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours golden with an off-white head. The aroma has light pale-ish malt and some grapefruit. It has a medium body that is lightly rough and fairly mild carbonation. The flavor starts off modestly sweet with the malt and shows light caramel and nice amount of grapefruit hoppiness. The finish has more grapefruit, pine and spice. Nice IPA.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is nicely hoppy with some sweet floral notes to it and just a hint of earthiness. Taste is light a moderately bitter, but is quite smooth and descends slightly sweet bready finish. Decent brew.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: smells of tropical flavors, sweet, tangy pineapple, grapefruit.
Appearance: light caramel color, with a golden appearance.
Taste: lighter flavor, tropical sweet flavor hits you first, then it ends with a nice bitter lingering. Not too strong or overpowering hops flavor.
Palate: has a nice lingering of flavors, switching flavors and not overpowering all at once. A nice full body.
Overall: I liked this beer, had a nice flavor mostly tropical notes, not too bitter, but also I would have liked a stronger lingering of hops flavor.
