Draught at The Red Squirrel, Edinburgh. Hazy copper to amber with off white head. Malty sweetness up front along with some banana hints, caramel. The hops emerge from the arctic coldness of the beer, some resinous notes along with grapefruit. Good late on.

ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Draught at the brewery, 8/17/16.
Slightly more amber-copper to it than the Crikey, with the similar slight haze and staunch, white head.
Tropical indeed but with plentiful citrus and a much more sparse maltiness behind it. The relative lack of sweet malts actually makes this seem a little less juicy than the crikey, despite its attempt at being moreso. Still, it’s clean, with lots of greenery, spiciness and succulent pineapple and no alcohol.
Somewhat dry, with lots of grapefruit up front turning to spicy, tangy pineapple. Cracker and biscuit malts divulge only a bit of sweetness, while apricot and more grapefruit linger on the finish. Good, supportive/engaging carbonation and a strong dryness with fair bitterness. Liked the Crikey more (it felt more New Englandy to me....) but this is still quite drinkable.

On draft at Zeek’s Pizza in Belltown area of Seattle. Pours a slightly murky copper-orange, with middling head. Aroma was full of citrus and tropical fruit and very dank. Flavor was very fruity, with loads of tropical and citrus. Slightly sweet finish. Really enjoyable IPA.

Draft at Zeek’s.

Light brown pour, white head. Nice juicy pale ale. Plenty of tropics, caramel coming on relatively strong. Well crafted enjoyable pizza parlor beer.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft at Zeek’s Lynnwood, which turns out to have quite the little beer program going on in the bar end of the house. This one is just for Zeek’s--I assume any location, not just here. Pours a clear medium golden amber with a dense and sudsy whitish head. Sweet nose, lots of grapefruit, smells more generically like sweet fruit than it does like specific tropical fruits, but the pink grapefruit note is fairly distinct. Creamy medium body with lightish carb. Lightly toasted caramel under a steady roll of sweet fruit notes on the mid palate. Mild sweet finish. Decent stuff.

Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2016
Sample at the tap room. Clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Strings of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of grapefruit, grassy hops and caramel malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.5

Draught at DevilCraft. Nicely tropical on the nose but kind of dies out on the palate, guessing damaged like quite a few Washington imports these days, tough to judge but guessing this would be pretty good at the source.
