500 ml bottle. Clear amber body topped by a fluffy white head that sticks around. Lively carbonation. Aromas of pineapple, plum, lime, bread and pepper. Taste starts off slightly sweet before a distinct grapefruit and pine bitterness kicks in. Drops off a bit at the end leading into a spicy aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2017 Restrained tropical fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance with light body and sustained bitter finish. A nice brew - albeit one that doesn’t stand out from the crowd.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lovely amber with a fine, off white head. Nose is passionfruit, a little caramel. Pretty delicate nose. Flavor is more assertive. Lots of passionfruit and orange on the mid palate, caramel sweetness, slightly nutty, piney towards the end with a bitter grapefruit and pine resin finish, turning more piney as the finish lingers. Medium body. Pretty good, though the nose lacks complexity. It’s also just a hair too sweet for my taste. I like my west coast IPAs absolutely bone dry with very little sweet malt character. This only has a little, but even that is too much for me. Still a tasty beer though.
