I drank this beer from a tulip glass...

The color was a hazy golden with a fluffy white head. It smells of grapefruit, tangerine, mango and pineapple. It tastes of bitter pine and grapefruit peel with some caramel malt a little pepper and tropical fruit. Feels medium bodied with low carbonation and a dry finish. I thought this was a good IPA, it's not up there with the best but is better than your average IPA.

bottle from Specs, side of the case says it was bottled 3 days ago, cool.
pours with about a 1/4 inch of head with a light apricot color.
smell is nice, cirus with a hint of sweetness and light malt.
Taste is about the same as the smell, some light malt with a nice citrus hop presence. it is a nice light AIPA... or I think it is. seems like it is a bit o the lower end of alcohol for something this hoppy, around maybe 6%. Seeing as how I just had the divine reserve 11 a couple days ago, this pales in comparison to the hops in that, however, this is not an IIPA. It is nice, and light and refreshing... and I am reviewing by style.

Pours with minimal head and maintains a thin layer throughout. Nose is extremely floral and quite pleasant. Initial taste is expected hoppy. Not much malt flavor. The hops linger, but it's not a chemistry experiment. Overall, a good, big IPA. If you see a tap, grab a pint.

poured from the bottle into a tulip pint glass.

A Pours a dark amber with a quarter inch head.
S Piney...cedar. Later comes citrus.
T When you first taste...its like it smells...heavy on the pine...but when you swallow there is a lot of grape fruit.
M smooth texture, high carbonation
D Good session american IPA. If you like hops, you could drink a pack of these. Kind of feels like a comb of a east coast and a west coast IPA

Bottle: Poured a a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light hoppy citrus notes with bitter notes and some good caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by good citrus notes that are well balanced by plain bitter hoppy notes with a solid malt backbone that is well balanced and not too sweet. Nothing earth shattering but well brewed for the style.
