UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 On tap at Hangar 45 in Columbia Heights, Minnesota, served in a huge 25 ounce mug. The biggest beer I’ve had in awhile! Not much head on this serving. Pretty much all beer, all the way to the top.
Served ice cold, but that’s a good thing, as it takes a while to get through a beer that size.
I see IBUs listed as 80, which is by some measures the baseline for a very "hoppy" beer. This is certainly the case here. Hops are way up front here, balanced with just enough malt to take the edge off the bitterness. The flavours of both hops and malts are bold and assertive, and overall this beer is very well balanced. Very nice indeed!

Pour a slightly hazy golden with a small, rocky head. Spruce and tropical fruit aroma, gummy bears? yum!. Taste is a little disappointing with a slight medicinal quality, but still a quality IPA.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, yellow-orange body with a thick, white head. Aroma of floral/grassy hops along with apricot and citrus. Taste is similar, although not as strong as the aroma. Bitter finish.

Growler from Brick Spirits. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a huge pillowy off white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Slight hints of caramel malt. Really tasty! Nice balance of fruity citrus and tropical hops and caramel malt. I can definitely tastes hints of the kiwi and passionfruit as well. Well done

Draft at Moriartys. Clear medium-light amber pour with a lasting off-white foam that left some lace. Very hop forward. Turpentine. Autumn leaves. Tangerine peels. Watermelon rind. Grapefruit pith. Anbesol. Sharp and bitter. Hops are bringing a strong heat to the mouth like a very hot pepper. Tastes better after the tongue numbs a bit.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a light golden color with a small white head that leaves little webbed lacing. Aroma is mostly apricot, kiwi, and other citrus,light caramel malts. Mouthfeel is smooth. Taste is very balanced even though there are a lot of hop varietals being used. Finishes rather clean with little lingering bitterness. Solid!

Nice tropical fruity aroma. Pineapple, mango, orange and some pine mixed in. Not a very assertive spicy hops presence more like an english IPA than an American IPA. More clean tropical notes in the flavors. Some spicy citrus and mango. Overall, this is very drinkable and with the tropical overtones, its easy to see this as a quality beach beer. Thanks to BarZigKin for the hookup!
