Nice tropical fruity aroma. Pineapple, mango, orange and some pine mixed in. Not a very assertive spicy hops presence more like an english IPA than an American IPA. More clean tropical notes in the flavors. Some spicy citrus and mango. Overall, this is very drinkable and with the tropical overtones, its easy to see this as a quality beach beer. Thanks to BarZigKin for the hookup!

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2016 This beer rocks. No hype just a great beer. Loads of upfront aroma with a killer hop taste. Interesting it is a bit of a twist flavor wise from many ipa. Lots of tail end bitterness but very palatable ... Exceptional ipa. U would be hard pressed to find a better. Summit and lagunitas are brewing for the common man! And I love it... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 bottle. Golden with small head. Mild hoppiness, but with good fruity flavor. Seems like more of a pale ale, but decent enough.

Pretty solid IPA with a lot of hop spiciness and mouthfeel complexity. Had a dry finish. On draft in a pint glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly cloudy yet carbonated golden with a full and foamy white head. The aroma, while being pretty much what you come to expect from this style, is very good. Grapefruit, orange, pine, mango and lemon. The taste is big on pine that goes along with lots of melon and mango. There is some grapefruit as well. Surprisingly, this doesn’t come through as much until the end. An excellent hoppy bitterness here. Aftertaste is grapefruit and mango. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, with lots of lively carbonation. My first impression was that this was going to be pretty standard. However, with some different flavors in here that you usually don’t find dominant, I found this to be a bit of a different take for an IPA. Overall, I thought this one to be very solid.

12oz bottle. Copper, clear, persistent white head. Aroma of honey-sweet malt with some toast, big hop aroma bright and lemony with sweet, fruity tangerine, a little spruce. Flavor is very similar with a little caramel sweetness and fruity, citrusy hops, a little lingering bitterness.

Bottle - Pours clear amber with a big foamy white head. Nose is pretty dank and fruity hops, woody and sharp, Clean pale malt, and there are some of the berry notes from the description. Taste has the dry, pale malt base, along with a bit of doughiness. Fruity, dank hops up front, transitioning into a bitter, grassy, astringent finish. Thin and soft body, with a fluffy carbonation. Tasty stuff.

Aroma of weed, grass, and underripe citrus. Pours orange with a lasting medium head. Taste of grapefruit zest, stale pine needle, and dull malt. Pretty great IPA.

Bottle. Nice aroma and appearance for a budget IPA. Nice citrus, grapefruit aromas and flavor, but equally nice on the dry finish. Well balanced and an all-around great option for the price.
