S&B. Draft. Hazy orange amber color, medium white head. Aroma is fresh mango, grapefruit, pineapple. Taste is sweet tropical fruit. Not overly bitter, but warmingly boozy. Very tasty, but I wish this had a more reasonable alcohol level.

22oz bottle pours a hazy orange with some hazy white head. Nose has a ton of juicy mango, some citrus, pine, soap. Flavor has some instantaneous bracing bitterness followed by a strong tropical fruit sweetness, pine, grapefruit. Big, zesty, sticky finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours a hazy copper color with a lasting creamy, tan head. The nose has lots of resinous pine and a touch of mango. The flavor is a wallop of hops. Lots of pine resin, slight tropical mango undertones, and a little pineapple. Unfortunately the bitterness turns a little aspirin like in the finish. Nice herbals emerge as the brew warms. The ABV is well hidden. Medium to full body with lower carbonation. Solid, but I was hoping the tropical notes would be a little better represented based on the description. Itís tough for a IIPA to stand out these days and unfortunately this one would get lost in the crowd.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Consumed on premise - 5oz taster. This one poured a clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was resin, sweet tropical fruit notes (grapefruit and mango). This one was pretty freaking tasty - mango notes through and through - grapefruits. Alcohol was relatively masked while consuming but soon after cheeks and forehead started to warm a bit - itís there but I donít feel like I have to avoid open flames while consuming. Bottle this, please.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Vienna Whole Foods. Low haze golden pour. Webby white lacing. Nose is dusty, sweaty, vinegar, medicine. As it warms more butterscotch and melon. Taste is all paper with chemical bitterness. Harsh, dry, astringent. Terrible long aftertaste. Give it some time to open up. Wow what a differnece. Mango pulp evident but soft, fairly juicy, fairly oily. Yum. Takes some time to fall into rhythm.
