Pours deep dark orange brown with medium head. Floral smell, harsh bitter aroma, big earthy hops. Taste is floral, some earthy vegetal hops, lots of big malt on the backbone, definite bitterness from the beginning to the end. The mouthfeel is slightly dry, medium carbonation, relatively easy drinking. Very good IPA, and somewhat different from anything else I have had.

Pour is nice coppery orange. Nice and hazy (unfiltered). Good head follows the pour, nice white bubbles.

Smell hits you as soon as the cap comes off. Nice piney, with hints of peaches and some other tropical fruits. The grapefruity/ citrusy hops linger in the background. Biscuity yeast is in there too. This smells sooo good.

Nice balanced flavor. Not as fruity tasting as it smells, more of the pine and bitterness, with just a touch of citrus bite. Can taste the biscuit flavored on the tongue. Finishes super dry. The fruit makes another appearance in the after taste.

Wow, that's all I can say. Balanced to the T, what a great IPA. The smell is what made it for me, and the taste does not disappoint.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Clear orange-amber with a tan head.

Smell: Mango cam at me first followed by floral hops. Then peach and grapefruit.

Taste: Floral hops is first followed by the mango mango. Peach and grapefruit on the end.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, slightly coarse yet still smooth. Has a very nice light dry finish.

Overall: I am totally blown away by this IPA! The citrus and hops are so well balanced and flavorful. Medium bodied. Just an oustanding brew. Cheers.
