had this on tap for the first time last night, in a bottle i was not too impressed by it, thought of it as just another IPA but this was when i was going through a big DIPA and TIPA phase, recently went back to stouts and porters but it was the only beer at the bar we went to i had not tried on tap yet, so i figured id give it a shot
A - golden in color, light visible carbonation, finger and a half head, white in color, that hung around for the entire pint, left nice rings going down the glass
S - nice light hoppy scent but still very noticeable, slight citrus scent
T - first sip was just a slight hops in the beginning and a light citrus in the back, allowed pint to warm a bit while talking and taking a few sips here and there, once it warmed up a bit i got a much stronger hoppy flavor, id put it in the moderate hops taste, slight malty flavor in the middle and it lingered after i swallowed, and a decent citrus kick at the end that went nicely with the malty after taste
M - an almost sticky mouth feel after i swallowed, a very pleasant feel while drinking, slightly carbonated, not too watery but far from a think feel
D - will order again on tap and will give another shot in a bottle since i no longer drink DIPA and TIPA on a regular basis, dont think of it as a beer i will drink much over the fall and winter but next summer will be one of warm weather beers, had 2 more through out the night, so obviously i would have another
Pleasantly surprised by my experience with this on tap, if you were not a fan of it in a bottle i highly recommend trying it on tap

In a can-shaped glass.
A- Amber body, some cloudiness and no carbonation visible. Foamy light head that plateaus and leaves lots of lace.
S- Orange citrus and sweet caramel plus subtle pineyness.
T- Mellow citrus and a good dose of caramel. Pineyness is there too. The nose and tongue are very consistent. But good.
M- This beer is bitter, but not overwhelming. Average carbonation. Medium-bodied and with a hint of booziness.
Overall, a top-notch IPA and one that can stand above the rest of the crowd.

A very nice IPA. The appearance was light orange with a head that lasted a while then left trails down the glass. The smell was really nice with a lot of floral and herb components. The taste was full of hops that left a very nice even taste that ended in an enjoyable crisp finish. The mouthfeel was also nice. For an IPA at seven percent, it was delightfully medium bodied with a refreshing amount of fizz. Would definitely recommend.
