Hazy, yellow-orange with a tall, light beige head.
Tangerine, pineapple, melon aroma.
Taste is sweet....tropicals...with a bit of alcohol bitter .....resin.
Great scent, but a little on the harsh side.
Poured from a 22oz bomber. Amber hue with decent amount of carbonation that holds. Notes of peach, citrus, pine, & some earth. Taste is the same, somewhat resiny. Decent offering in the floy series.

Backlog entry. Good flavors, close to style, as expected without too many surprises. superspak (6104) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2017
22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, bottled on 9/27/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, lime, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, papaya, mango, melon, citrus zest, pepper, pine, honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, wood, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/tropical/citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, papaya, mango, melon, citrus zest, pepper, pine, honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, wood, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime, tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, papaya, mango, melon, citrus rind, pepper, pine, honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, wood, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/tropical/citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 7.5%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/tropical/citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very unique hop profile from the 484 experimental hop. Great mix of juicy, earthy, and dank hop complexity; balanced bready malt backbone, with no residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering.
