Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malt. Flavor is stronger than I thought with not much alcohol warming for it being 7%.

The bitterness seems to hit me more than others on this brew but a great session. Amarillo seems to come through. Very fruity with a great sweet aroma. Little mango, citrus and pine dominate your tongue!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: it’s piney aroma is all IPA. The taste is well balanced and hoppy, but the hop varieties really show through with their citrus and fruity flavors.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium amber with a small white head. No lacing.
Aroma is very fruity with lots of tropical citrus along with just a touch of dankness. Very intense aroma.
This hop intensity carries over into the flavor. It is extremely juicy with pineapple and mango but a touch of that earthy dankness manages to hang around. Not much malt is detectable as it is basically all hops. Very high bitterness and a dry mouthfeel.
This is an extremely well done IPA. Glad I got the chance to try this one and I will be on the lookout for it in the future.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - pours deep gold with white head. Nose is cat urine. I’m pretty sure I had this at Natifest and thought it was Sabertooth in two separate glasses. Fairly bitter. OK.

You got to love it! Why?!? New brewery try at Great American Ball Park on draft! Didn’t think this dry, tropical fruit monster weighed in so heavy. Very good impression from a brewery in a city where that is terrible at brewing beer.
