3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on draft on 12/1812 on drat at M.L. Rose West. Pours clear, pale orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to messy lace. The nose is super floral with a bunch of tropical fruit, plenty of citrus, and a nice light bread malt aroma. The flavor is the same, dominated by the tropical fruit and citrus hops with some nice bitterness, and just enough of a malty flavor to balance. The body is medium with a bit of a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long nicely bitter, floral, and tropical fruit hops finish.

Great extra from Scott, thanks a bunch! Poured into a Long Trail pint glass. Light, clear yellow/golden in color with a fingers with of white head. Head dissolves slowly and leaves moderate lacing as I empty the glass. Nose is packed full of floral and fruity goodness. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine, and resins hops. Flavor starts of with the fruity character, grapefruit, white grapes, and pineapple, and then finishes with a lingering bitterness. Moderate mouthfeel, prickly carbonation, bitter, and a moderate finish. Really nice subtle, but stern IPA. It doesnít overpower your senses, it tickles them and makes you want more.

sample at schlafly tap room Pours deep golden. White head. Nose is ripe fruits, sticky sweet hop dankness grass, resins, and light malt aroma but not of caramel. Flavor is sweet light malts, dank fruity hops, pineapple, ripe mangos, koolaid. Bitter finish. Interesting malt flavor I guess because itís not clouded with caramel malts like a lot of IPAs

Tap at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown. Hazy orange-tan with a creamy off-white head. Awesome unique funky island tropical insanity aroma. Perhaps the most all out Starburst tropical IPA Iíve ever had. Delightful golden malt body, never too thick doing anything other than creating a steady backbone for the intense hops to shine. Sort of blows a great beer like Zombie Dust out of the water. True hop dream. Lemon-lime, peach, interesting pungent twang, and no sugary overtones. Phenomenal! Light noble peppery notes meets tropical bliss.

Great beer, super hoppy beast! One of the best new IPAs Iíve had in a while. Big piney aroma, sticky, lots of citrus. It bites up front and finishes quick and clean. Very good stuff.

Huge thanks to xscottypx! Medium golden pour with a frothy white head that sticks around forever and laces. Big tropical hop fruitiness with pineapple, apricots, peach and oranges with some underlying honey sweetness. Sweet slightly creamy honey and bread malts on the front quickly turning into huge tropical fruity hops and a long bitter finish. Fantastic balance and flavor profile. Damn good beer.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy golden color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of earthy and herbal hops with mild citrus and tropical notes.The taste is bitter hops... mango, tropical, candied citrus, pine. Pale malt backbone. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. Quite nice. Thanks for the recommendation Jay.
