    Pours typical cloudy IPA from Hop Butcher: clarity isn't there. Huge, pillowy, deep, pure white foam covers. Great retention that continually covers. Lacing is immediate, sticky but thin. Nice in the glass.

    Aroma up front is indistinctive very ripe tropical fruits laid on a bed of pine with citrus nipping the edges. As it breaths and warms it the ripe tropical fights with the pine, creating an odd aroma overall.

    Taste is sweet up front that gives way to ripe mango, greeting pine and citrus towards the finish. The pine and citrus linger with the citrus really hanging on, almost creating a red grapefruit bitterness.

    Medium plus body. Solid up front carbonation that quickly dissipates. Bitter finish that lingers some.

    Solid offering here. I don't know if the the aroma as it warms is my favorite. It just seems rough. Great look to the beer. I would have it again but I wouldn't seek it out. Enjoy!
