12 oz undated bottle into a pint glass.
color is a deep amber to copper, much richer than i expect from an ipa. a hard pour forms one finger of off white head that dissipates quick. the ring left in the glass produces some thin, leggy lacing though.
really nice floral hops and citrus fruit in the nose. taste follows with a substantial malt backbone and a pleasant bite from the hops. i'm picking up notes of grapefruit, toffee and pine resin. like any good ipa the bitterness lingers, but isn't overpowering here. pretty well balanced and a little more complex than most.
mouthfeel is a little thick for an ipa, but still smooth with the right amount of co2. has a bit of a chewy quality.
drinkability is good and goes down easy. maybe not a session beer, but certainly delicious and to style. to me this comes across as being just a little bit better in each category than most of the ipa's i have had.

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.

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
