look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 10/04/11, poured in a Sam Adams glass

Appearance: Pours a finger of foam, settles to a thin layer of foamy frosting. Medium amber color, translucent.

Smell: Earthy hops aroma that is more sweet-citrus (like a tangerine) than tart-citrus (like a lemon). Quite floral, reminds me of the aroma in the colombus hops from the beer I recently brewed.

Taste: Starts dry with a slightly citrusy-earthy bitterness, that quickly turns malty. Leaves a very citrus bitter finish. In other word, maltiness is bookended by dry, citrusy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, and more full-bodied than most IPAs. Kinda dry.

Overall: One of the better single IPA's on the market
