A tropical take on the American IPA Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    Hazy golden-amber on the light side, with a big creamy off-white head, great retention and loads of thick and patchy lace. The mouthfeel is fairly dry in the finish, but juicy enough to be refreshing. Hoppy aromas of grass and light fruitiness. The taste is not as bitter as expected. Well-balanced with the mild fruits note. Not feeling the tropical fruits much, but a good IPA nonetheless.

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    Pours clear amber with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but promises tangy tropical fruit and zesty hops. Flavor exceeds the aroma, upping the hop character and throwing in some evergreen undertones while rounding out the tropical fruit into definite mango and passion fruit; some fresh malt takes the gustatory stage as well. Mouthfeel features fairly firm body and nice fizz. Get torpedoed - but if you get too torpedoed, please call a cab.

    Amber pour with a thick white head. Very little carbonation. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma. Enjoyable citrus and grapefruit taste. Definitely not overpowering. Rather tame IPA but very good overall.

    A golden orange colored beer with a big frothy textured, white head rising above. There's good hang time on that head. A robust cap remains. A bready malt in the nose. More of that in the tasting with more spices than hops. Crisp and refreshing

    Initial bread in the nose but quickly overtaken by pine and floral notes with hint of banana. Clear warm gold body topped with minimal white head leaving nice skim coat but little lace. Mouth is chewy and a bit under-carbonated. Flavor is odd. the supposed tropical fruit tastes like rotting grapefruit rind. Not strong but there, ends bitter and hints of aspirin. ME NO LIKE!

    12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a huge frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

    The aroma is cracker malt with sweet fruit and peppery, resiny, slightly metallic, hops.

    The flavor is sweet bready malt with tropical fruit and peppery, resiny hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a nice fruity resiny IPA.
