Pours clear with a several inches of white foam to coat. Retention is average or better, leaving behind sticky lacing quickly.
Aroma is tropical fruits: pineapple and mango. Amarillo and citra hops really come through strong.
Taste follows being tropical fruit centric. There is some sweetness but just enough to balance. Minimal bitterness that isn't harsh.
Light body with medium carbonation. Finishes dry but only slightly as the juicy fruits keep the mouth liquefied.
This is way to damn easy to drink in spite of the big alcohol. That could be a problem, nah. Really a nice drinking IPA. Enjoy!

One fine body…
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.
