4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler. Medium and very hazy apricot colored pour, spotty head and a really nice aroma of fresh oranges and peaches. Flavor is dry and bitter woody peaches and grapefruit and just enough malt to stand up to some good creamy bitterness on the finish. Pretty damn good, and a steal at $10 for a growler fill.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, dough into a bit of nice tropical fruit, some resin, nice orange and grapefruit notes as well, slight spice. Taste was a mix of spice, resinous, orange, grapefruit into some mango, pineapple, slight grass into some pine, finishing slightly bitter, dry.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Wrye and Fedex for actually delivering the beer to me on the second attempt. Pours a hazy golden orange with moderate white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is almost a little punky with some paper, slightly fade hops. Nothing I would ever pick up as tropical. Taste is more of a malty non-fruit forward IPA. Just not doing it for me and I love Nelson hopped beer. This just doesn’t seem to be one to me.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber shared with ebone1988. The pour is a nice bright orangey gold with a big pillowy white head that falls off slowly, leaving incredibly clingy soapy lace. The aroma is really good. Subtle. There is a beautiful citrus juice blast up front and follows up with a big dank hop presence. Lightly syrupy on the back end. The flavor is really dank up front. It's a lot more green than I was expecting. Really leafy green. The Malta come in and take over about half way through before succumbing to the hops and citrus once more and it finishes hoppy and bitter, rather than dry. The mouth feel is creamy and lightly carbonated with a quick fading lingeringly hoppy aftertaste. It smells better than it was. Still great

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is dank, on the piny and earthy side, some citrus. Appearance is golden, opaque, white head, great lace. Taste is dank, quite tart, some pine, floral and citrus. Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation without being too crisp, flavor hangs. Overall, it smells better than it tastes but it’s still very good.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a golden honey color with a thin ring of creamy off-white head. I like the aromatics; a citrus and tropical fruit blend with floral and spicy herbal notes. Flavor is more herbal and spicy floral hops. Something in the tail hints at peanut butter. A decent flavor, but the aroma is so good... overall not too shabby for my first TG brew.

Word to ericteusink for opening this. A little more subtle and muted than alpine. Pretty nice to try these together. Cotton candy and bubblegum aromas. Really nice but a touch below alpine.

Solid ipa with a strong tangerine and citrus start and finish. Slight malt backbone to balance this one off. Smells of citrus and pours a beautiful gold color with a thick white head. Had in myrtle beach.
