Bottle was a bonus from Stfun.. Thanks man.. Nice amber pour with moderate lacing with a tropical nose. The taste was light citrus, with lots of lemon, apricot, and grapefruit, some tropical notes, lots of hop flavor, but a very silky mouthfeel and a very dry, pleasant ending with only a trace of bitterness. Overall a really nice IPA.

VRH (50) - Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours a light golden color with an ample off-white head that recedes to a thin lacing. The aroma is full of juicy pineapple, citrus, some tropical fruit & hints of banana peel. The taste is full of tart grapefruit & resinous pine, some lemon zest, a hint of onion, & modest malt foundation on the palate. The finish is drying, slightly herbal & grassy with lingering hints of sweet fruit. Excellent!

TheCaptMatey (66) - Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Poured golden to light amber colour with white head. Left beautiful lacing. Soft aroma of primarily citrus with notes of cracker, but nothing overwhelming. Flavor was a hoppy citrus and pine with a mild wheat malt undertone. Medium body with light carbonation and mild bitterness. Very drinkable.

GlasgowTAD (75) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Cloudy orange with a sandstone coloured head Aroma is oranges and bitter Taste is bitter followed by a pleasant orange tanginess with notes of grapefruit. The bitterness is a tease in this one, it entices you with its aroma then leaves you longing for more as it lingers around once the beer makes its way south. This beer feels fluffy in the mouth, almost feels like you’re drinking cotton candy except this cotton candy is the result of a crazy Heston Blumenthal experiment. Perfect.

ericdevin (834) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle from unknown in trade. Pours a medium pale orange, lots of white head, full and lacy. Aroma sharp and fresh, pineapple, some resin, graham cracker. Body full yet light, very crisp and refreshing. My second or third time having it, but first since joining RB. Not too shabby.

jonas (5720) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2014
Tap. Wonderfull fresh hop aroma - citrus, light apricot and lychee. Cloudy orange-yellow, creamy off-white head. Medium light body, creamy mouthfeel. Fruity sweet base, all the hop aromatics a bit grass, slightly wheaty malt base. On the sweet end of the spectrum, but still fresh and drinkable.
