Bottle shared with atom. Pours a disgusting looking dark, hazy, peach color with a creamy white head. Looks gross. Not a lot in the aroma immediately, but a good swirl really opens the aroma up. Pineapple, mango, pine, and flowers comprise the aroma. Quite interesting combo. Flavors of flowers, pineapple, sticky pine, tropical fruit, and caramel. Very full bodied for an IPA. Almost creamy at times. No real bitterness in the finish on this. Looks like shit, tastes kinda better. Although, this doesn’t seem as good, or the same, as the last time I had it.

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!

After looking for this beer for nearly a year, I poured it into my IPA glass and though "no way this will live up to my expectation." It did, as good as an IPA gets. Golden with big off-white head. Aroma of fresh juicy pineapple and mango and a hint of something akin to vanilla. As an IPA and not a DIPA it has a medium malt body, not sweet and syrupy but just the perfect amount to transfer the lovely hop flavors to you without being invisible. Hop character is mango, pear, pineapple and some pine. Tropical finish that lingers a while. Will buy again any time I see it.

Bottle to ipa glass. Pours a pretty golden with a big white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine with a touch of citrus notes behind. Taste is very grapefruit forward with a decent malt character and some sweetness to balance. Pretty bitter finish on the tongue. Overall a well made beer just not something I love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big head. Great tropical, grapefruit, and pine hop aroma. Honey colored and a little cloudy. In the same family of IPAs as Pliny (which I only know from clones), but what?s especially nice is the finish. I get a more delicate lemon and biscuit at the end with a tart and puckering sensation. Very drinkable despite the intense piney middle. Must be good water treatment (reminds me a little of TG but with more bite). Mineral taste?
