Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head. Awesome nose of grapefruit, pineapple, pine, and floral hops. A light tropical fruit note in there as well. Very little malt aroma. The flavor has a great fruitiness to it with all of the grapefruit/citrus and tropical flavors. A nice bite of bitterness to it from the pine. Just a touch of bready malt flavor, but still nice and dry. Very enjoyable.

Growler... Pours hazy and golden with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a huge lupulin swirl of funk, musk, peppery hops, tropical fruit and melon. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is insanely fruity and melony - cantaloupe, passionfruit and honeydew stand out. Well-balanced overall. Juicy, fruity, lightly bitter finish. Growler courtesy of richiesd!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Toronado SD. Pours a full haze, glowing straw. Weak head formation. Nose is puppy breath, tangerine, thick mango. Taste is sharp melon rind, white pepper, honeydew, cantaloupe, mango finishing with hefty walnut and macadamia nut bitterness, richness. Quenching, thick, near butterscotch finish. A lot of mango and sticky rice character, which I love. Definitely something to watch out for.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from growler. The beer pours a clear pale amber-gold color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and toasted malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has grapefruit and onion notes. Some sweet malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Solid IPA all around.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a pure gold slightly opaque body (can you say, “drool inducing hop haze my friend?”) supporting a near white head, a dirty white head let’s say. The aroma is big and citrusy and tropical . . . yummy! Around the edges of those terrific fruity notes I get a bit of floral hops and just a touch of sweet maltiness. Man, the taste is rich and delicious with citrus like hops consisting of a little bit of grapefruit and tangelo mixing with a mango tropical note. Like in the nose around those rich fruity notes I get a thin ring of floral hops being supported up by a wafer thin yet firm sweet malty body. Just a terrific IPA as it is rich and bold yet smooth enough to be dangerously sessionable. Wow!
