It is a big swell in deed. Hops galore boys! Bursting with flavor, this is one fine IPA. I had both citrus and pineapple come my way, as well as pine and resin. Ear tingling goodness.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright medium orange with a two finger off white head which lingers forever and fades to excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits (passion fruit and mango), caramel, pine, and sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma but is a bit more robust. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a nice, juicy, refreshing IPA that is tastes like what a beer would taste like in a dream set in Hawaii.

One of the best canned IPA’s that I’ve ever had. Hop characteristics were nice but not overpowering, and it went down smooth.

Can. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate white head. Nose is hop forward, with some floral and slight resin notes to it. Taste is a little sweet with some toasting elements to it. A little weird for the style, but still interesting.
