The IPA pours a hazy yellow-orange and is topped by a towering stack of dense white foam that shows excellent retention. Patches of lace cling to the sides of the glass.

The palate is led by a taste of doughy bread and pine. A bitter finish adds juicy lemon and grapefruit atop sweet and mellow tropical fruit; particularly pineapple. A hint of booze appears as the beer warms.


Oats and wheat lend a smooth and creamy feel. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
