Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pineapple, mango, and papaya in a red ipa..whoa, thats creative! Aroma is slightly fruity, but I wouldnt be able to pull out those aromas. Clear red/amber color. Sips nice and lively with nice hop presence. Body is medium to full and the middle and finish bring the malt to compliment the sweetness and hops. Slight watery body in the finish is my only complaint. Dry and sweet balance in the finish as well. Nice double ipa.

CObiased (420) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2017
12oz bottle - it pours a clear copper bronze color with suspended particulates and a thin off white head. Not bad but nothing outstanding - some light bready red maltiness and a hop forward flavor with citrus and tropical notes.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Nice bitter ale. Light colour, little foam. Cuts through spicy food nicely. Acceptable

VertBaconStrips (2370) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JAN 7, 2017
One of the standouts from the free dust box which I was very surprised to receive. Cloudy with sediment. Thin white top and minor lacing. I smell tropical fruit and thats always welcome over most else. Peaches and pineapples. Wish the aroma was stronger as I love it when I can smell an IPA through my eyes. The flavours are very good. Balanced but not crazy... I prefer crazy. Really good mouthfeel due to the soft, fine carbonation. A thicker beer would be preferred. Tropic blend, peach, mellow rrgf, some juice, 75 ibu come across just above medium in dosage. ORIGINAL GRAVITY OF 1072!!!!!!! OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!! so... I know the definition but what the hell does it really mean? What changes if this was 1073? Enjoyable beer done up in my my fave ipa style. Would have loved this to be an absolute beast.

Bottle to glass- pours a cloudy marmalade color with a resilient white head. Aarons is tropical, citrus, celery, traces of honey. More tropical on the tongue with some peach along with an underlying malt edge with caramel and breads. Fairly dry finish with a bite of mild spice. Great beer!

Bottle from variety. Sweet malted aroma, bread, citrus. Smell is mango, orange, pineapple. Very tropical. Hidden hops. Taste is sharp and biting but mellows out and more sweet and fruity.
