GG, Seattle. Thick foam on a rich, dark orange. Classic, pretty IPA appearance. Rich, juicy perfume with an earthy pine resin edge. Mouth watering juicy hops. Finely put together and delicious. Quenching, easy to drink. Mint-edged hop finish with stronger, slightly sweet, malt backend. Solid.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a overripened fruit aroma. Taste is guava, melon and light pineapple. This beer is as advertised, tropical with a nice drinkability. Little floral bitterness throughout that dissipates quickly. Strykzone (7555) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2017
