Bottle. Well, this is art. A soft, approachable, full-flavored and aromatic IPA that happens to clock in at 9%? How’d they do that? This is delicious. Mango and pineapple, most certainly. Great hop choices in here. Wonderful beer.

Bottle - hazy gold - fairly thick lace - nose of sweet pineapple, mango, orange, plus some moderate alcohol, some grassy hoppiness - soft carbonation a flavor is a bit peppery and a bit alcoholic, but only mildly so - fairly clean malt character - fairly sweet, but with assertive enough bitterness to balance - a little chalky on the back end, with a bit of aspirin character - moderate tropical flavors - a bit of alcohol heat on the tail end - okay.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Top notch. Strong hoppy aroma. Good color and mouthfeel. As expected, typically strong west coast IPA with lingering bitterness that slightly overshadowed the malt base.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden in the glass with an off white head. Aroma is tangy citrus and floral hoppiness. Light mouthfeel, a bit sticky. Juicy pineapple, orange pith, some light biscuit, and flutter of booze on the finish. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold pour, small white head. Aroma is fresh, floral and grassy... but ultimately not much there. Flavor is big citrus, caramel, flowers, sweet... hop forward yet well balanced.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Bottled (unknown date). Pour into a tulip. Pale color, with big frothy white head, lots of effervescence and lots of sediment floating around. Similar in color to their session IPA. Aroma is dank hops, big tangerine, mango, peach, papaya, big tropical fruit citrus, some light pineapple, slight resin character. Flavor is lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, lots of biscuit malt mixed in throughout, and a slight dankness. Flavor is way better than aroma. Good body on it, too. Booze is noticeable, not up in your face, but you know it’s there.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Heavy tropical fruit and pine aroma. Lots of citrus, mango and some grapefruit. Flavor is very much the same. Lots of pineapple and mango with a heavy pine backbone. Finishes fruity but lightly bitter.
