12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 9/23/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, light bread, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, light bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, mango, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of citrus/tropical hop flavors with a fair amount of malt balance; with good flavor robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a highly excellent session IPA! All around great complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottle date: 7/30/13)

A: Deep blonde with a copper tinge. Nice lacing.

S: This smells pretty good. It is a different smelling IPA. The citrus-pine smells of this is blended quite uniquely.

T: The pine here is not good tasting and mostly, "Bleh." I can't place the exact flavor profile of the pine and malt here, but it just seems to be the bad side of pine bark.

M: Thin, not very prickly or coarse.

O: Eh, this IPA is not my bag. There is something about session IPAs that kind of takes all the fun and taste out of a good ABV. They are like the diet soda of IPAs, some people like them but not everybody. If I'm going to be drinking a beer, I want it to be full flavored.
