Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear copper color with semi on white head. The aroma has a tropical fruit to mango and pineapple notes. The taste has a tropical fruit to mango notes with a slight grapefruit aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Closing, I do not understand why it took this craft brewery to build on their success on Raging Bitch IPA. What I mean is, I am surprise it took this long to make another version of it. I have to say that it was worth the wait. They took their time to make a great beer. There is a nice balance in this beer. It is a pretty drinkable beer. There is some nice drinking notes and you can pick it up on the aroma too. This is a great beer and I highly recommend this beer. I will be picking up more soon. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
