22 oz bottle poured into tulip. Received in a trade with heelsn02 - many thanks!
Pours a clear amber color with a finger or two of white head. Head fades quickly. Leaves a bit of lace on the side of the glass. Almost no visible carbonation bubbles.
Smells heavily of honey. Definitely more on the sweet side than the hoppy side. Honestly, there are almost no hops in the smell. It smells quite good, but it does not smell like an IPA.
There is a generic bitterness in the taste at first, but it gets overwhelmed pretty quickly by the sweetness, followed by very distinct graininess, and almost an adjunct flavor. Strangely, there isn't a whole lot of honey taste in the beer. Aftertaste is very dry and astringent. No alcohol flavor detected.
Mouthfeel is average.
I'm glad I got to try this one, but I wouldn't have it again.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a hazy medium amber orange with an average (1-2 finger) white sudsy head that slowly receded, down to a medium film and large collar with excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was of grain malts, floral and pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).
The taste was a bit malty with a hint of caramel and a mild citrus sweetness early on, progressing with a nice bitter piney hop taste, a bit of grapefruit with a mildly bitter floral ending. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry yet somewhat creamy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this is a very simple IPA, a dose of hops, caramel and a touch of citrus. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go. Simply delicious...
