Hazy golden amber, some suspended particulates, and lots of foam that dissipates fast. Nose is spicy tropical fruits and melon. Very juicy with mild bittering on finish. Lots of melon, pine apple, and candied cherry. None of the spicy notes come through on the tongue. Itís a refreshing drink with very light body. Feels kind of like a fruit cocktail rather than fruit juice. Itís cold out right now in PA but I think this would make a refreshing summer porch beer.

Cloudy amber pour, off white head. Aroma is typical ipa, citrus, grapefruit and hops. Taste is citrus and hops. Pretty well balanced and smooth. Easy and not overpowering. Good IPA.

bennetporter (354) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours an amber from the tap, a nice fruity aroma, big hop flavor with some good sweet maltiness. Very good beer.

rjmc64 (35) - Deer Park, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Poured from bottle. Cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma is fresh melon, pineapple. Taste is juicy and fruity, not overly bitter, just a note in the finish.

Meh...not a fan of these "new breed of hops" that have the melon and tropical fruit flavors and this beer is full of them. Aroma was melon and a slight malt undertone. Pour was a medium light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nasty. Tropical fruit with a strong melon and cantaloupe hop flavor. Not much else comes out. Nice carbonation. Give me an insanely bitter overbalanced IPA any day over this.

Delicious flavorful ipa with just the right amount of hops. I bought a six pack right after I first tried it. No regrets.

berkshirejohn (5151) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, Buffalo, NY. A slightly hazy amber pour with a loose soapy looking white head; subdued tropical fruit aroma; slightly muddy tropical fruit taste at first, but developing a stronger woody bitterness before an alcohol lead finish. Rather unbalanced and muddy - but with the potential to be much better.

MadIndian (2606) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Craft. Nice notes of hop, pine, yeast, caramel malts and spice. The body was a tad thin, but overall a solid brew.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Light amber pour with a full white head. Aroma is juicy citrus, pine, a bit catty. Flavor is full, bursting with grapefruit, orange pith. Very sticky, dank. Pretty tasty, but a bit boozy on the finish.

Draft pours cloudy amber. Smells like feet. Taste very good. I would definitely recommend.
