Comments: At first I thought this one may be a re-brand of Beer Camp Tropical IPA, because of the same ingredients, IBUs and % abv. It turns out to be a clever manoeuvres of various hops as this one has a more mango-ish aroma and a very strong citrusy herbal taste proilfe. I tend to think this one is stronger, wholesome, and more expressive than the Beer Camp one. A great find!
Clear golden Amber color. Pineapple, papaya, mango and slight citrus nose. Slight malt, slight hop. Decent madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017

Almost clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth, semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, light dry creamy sweetness, Modest pine and modest tropical fruits. Mild candy fruit sweetness. Light pine. Light dry finish. Pretty staid and recessed, doubly so from Sierra Nevada!
Tap. Pours lightly hazy golden, small off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, hints of mango. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter. Medium body. Nothing special here. jjgmd (2215) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Bottle, day after Irma ' hit ' , pours a rusty light gold n pour with a white ephemera white head. Nose is deep sweet tropical fruit with softer pine and resin. Taste is bittersweet tropical fruits, with a nice confluence of hops . Finishes on the same tasting notes, with a long hoppy ending. Quaff Score 8 / 10.....

Pours a clear golden color with a very foamy white head. Aroma is mild tropical fruits, such as mango and passion fruit. Flavor is even more subtle on the hops, with some bread malt character. Well-carbonated with a medium body, little to no bitterness. This is okay. I generally really like tropical fruit-style IPAs, but this one is a bit too mild on that end.

Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, borostyán szín. Enyhe, citrusos, déligyümölcsös illat. Íze déligyümölcsös, mangós, ananászos. Selymes, közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Jól összerakott, kellemes, lágy IPA.

Pours copper with a medium head. Aroma is very dull, some corn, some grass, not much else. Flavour is a bit like a lager tbh. Think this has fallen victim to poor travelling coming to the UK berkshirejohn (6588) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2017
12oz bottle from Beer52.com. A bright pale amber pour with a loose white head; the aroma has some muted tropical fruit crossed with a fresh pinewood; rather soapy in the mouth, with a strong, but nicely balanced, hoppy taste, and some tropical fruit and jammy malts; then a warming resinous hoppy finish. A very nicely made IPA. lb4lb (2626) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Smell is fruity, hoppy. Copper clear pour. Taste clean hoppy, moderate bitterness.
