Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Bottled on 021913. Pours a translucent orange with a fluffy two finger head that shrinks down to a film after a few minutes, some lacing. Smells is grapefruit and mango up from with a slight pine in the background. Taste citrus and some resinous hops. Great bitterness with a fresh crisp and dry finish. MBC beers I have found to be very sensitive to aging... Must get and drink them fresh. I got a good one this time.

Thanks to dhatton, pours orange with a touch of haze and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, light pine and hint florals...all hops. Taste is moderate bitters with a little sweetness underneath. Excellent IPA.

Bottle thanks to thepatrickman - cheers! Hazy dark gold. Great orange, floral, and papaya leading on the nose with some light resin and shortcake. Big juice in the taste: tangerine, darker blood orange, a mix of dank and lighter tropical notes, moving on to light resin and a big grapefruit/lime bitter kick. Shortcake and light caramel represent the malt, frames the hop character rather than balances it. Long and slightly dank tropical finish with lighter floral notes lingering too. Cracker.

Wonderful nose. Poured golden with a fluffy, sticky head. Citrusy, piney, just about what you would call perfection in a bottle. Wish this was easier to get! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I could drink this all day. Great fruit nose, hoppy taste but malt balances well and isn’t a bitter bomb. Mixes fruit and pine really well.

Bottle thanks to RespertFTW. Cloudy with an off white head. Pit fruits and light hops. Delightful.

Love the aroma, reminds me of the even more refined Dinner. Great fruity flavor, little bitterness. A slightly less refined version of Dinner overall, and a great daily drinker until Dinner is more available.

This is an amazing IPA. Beautiful balance. Grapefruit notes. Not distributed much at all, but find it if you can.

IPA complexe au parfums de fruits tropicaux, cette bière est une fière représentante de son style. D’une riche robe blonde/orangée, cette bière est surmontée d’un épais collet blanc et onctueux qui fait saliver. Mise en garde: servir délicatement! Au nez cette bière est un aller simple pour les tropiques. Ça transpire le punch aux fruits: kiwis, ananas, fraises, noyau de pêche. Mon Dieu que c’est frais et plein de vie! Une avalanche de fines bulles émanent sans relâche du fond du verre et invite à une dégustation des plus rafraîchissantes! En bouche on poursuit dans la même veine et l’effervescence piquotle agréablement le palais et confère à cette bière une texture plus sèche et minérale qu’attendue. Un côté marin s’ajoute aux fruits. Nous sommes vraiment au sein d’un splendide voyage sous les tropiques dont on ne veut revenir! C’est frais, nerveux, complexe et long en bouche. La présence du malt est parfaitement balancée aux houblons. Un énorme coup de coeur pour moi!
