Bottle @ home. Pours an orange, almost clear liquid with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet pine apple, mango, papaya, tangerine, bread and caramel. Taste is dry with some sweet fruitiness and an assertive bitterness throughout. Flavors include mango, grapefruit, pine, pine apple, caramel. More grape and some passion fruit and bread in the finish. Classic IPA with a long lasting, biting bitternes in the aftertaste. EvanFriend (595) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2017
I was drinking some really good tropical flavored IPAs at the house of a friend from my homebrew club, then his wife made him come to dinner, and so I bought this. There’s some pineapple on the nose. A little bit of pineapple in the flavor as well, but the flavor is mostly pine, some caramel malt notes shine through as well. Overall, this tastes like a generic IPA.
I know a number of homebrewers who make IPAs that are unique and interesting, with many different flavor notes from different hop varieties, and different malt and yeast notes as well. I haven’t had a commercial IPA that wasn’t bland in years. graham_murphy (681) - - JUL 23, 2017
All the piney bitter sweet of their original and Torpedo IPAs with a nod to west coast IPAs - citrus, grapefruit, peach. Not bad. Adds the complexity that Torpedo lacks. SDalkoholic (2393) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle from CP Liquor: Poured a medium golden honey hue topped with thick patch of stubborn white foam head. Aroma is faint with only a minor whiff of zesty hops and perhaps butterscotch malting. The beer comes across as a malty rye flavor than it does tropical hops, but there is some aftertaste of fruits of some sort. Also leaves behind a bit of a zing finish similar to citrus fruit peels.

Bottle. Medium golden, clear, with a thick white head that leaves generous lace. Aroma and flavour features guava and mango with lightly sweet (golden syrup) pale malts, and a dry bitter finish. Nice. BeerViking (4798) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017
On tap, amber-brown with a lacing fine head, soft mango, papaya and orange nose, firmly and pithy bitter with relatively subtle fruit and an undertone of caramel. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2017
Bottle 355ml @ Sommerhusetbeer-yum (1714) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2017
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, pineapple, mango, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long citrus, pineapple, mango and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Tropical aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance with a laid back tropical fruit body and crisp clean finish. When in Hawaii do as the Hawaiians do...(or something like that)?!? TimE (5817) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 14, 2017
Golden color. Slightly sweet malty backbone on top of a tropical burst of hops. Pretty simple straight forward and not overly hoppy but enjoyable.
