A: A light copper with slight orange hue and great clarity. A persistent, rocky off-white head producing a good a head stand when poured.

S: A heady, strong hops aroma with a lot of citrus and pineapple some tropical fruit character as well like mango. Three is a moderate herbacous smell from the dry hopping. There is a light malt sweetness with a touch of caramel malt and some biscuit. A light alcohol sweetness.

T: A very strong citrus hops flavor with a strong hops bitterness. The hops are again lots of citrus and pineapple with some tropical notes. The balance is fairly bitter but the malt brings some sweetness and a little caramel and provides a good support for the hops. The finish is off-dry. There is a a light bit of ale esters but fairly clean like a chico yeast.

M: A medium bodied beer with a moderately-light creaminess and moderately-strong carbonation.

O: An outstanding hop bomb with excellent balance for those seeking a bitter beer. When I'm looking for an American this is exactly what I want but can so rarely find, a fresh, citrusy beer with a firm bitterness balanced with enough malt to support a ton of hops all will have a huge hop nose. This beer makes is going on my short list of great IPAs.

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from a capt lawrence tulip.

a - brew poured a transparent orange with a thin fizzy head that dissolved in a few minutes leaving a thin skin of head and some bubbly lacing sticking to the glass.

s - smells really nice. great hop with nice citric and soft fruity notes. not a hop bomb by any means, more of a tropical fruit. really nice. subtle.

t - taste follows the nose perfectly. great fruity hopping. i REALLY like this beer. it works perfect for me, great citric notes, tropical fruits...not much pine.

m - medium bodied. subtle bittering on the finish, but not really. extremely drinkable.

o - overall, this is a really nice IPA for what i like, but drink them NOW...if the hops fade you'll have a malt bomb as this is really subtle hopped. well done capt, i like this way more than the capt reserve.

Bottle form a Six Pack.

Pours a really nice yellowish color with some orange hues.
Aroma is pretty explosive. Tropical fruits, citrus and honey.
Taste is also very nice. A very nice sweetness that is balanced very well with a slightly bitter finish of the hops. Nice grapefruit, lemon and mango like sweetness.
Overall I am extremely impressed by this. I think it can hold its own with sucks, blind pig and nugget nectar. Hopefully they come to PA soon, so I can add this to the IPA list.

Pours a lovely light orange/amber into my snifter. A prodigious light yellow/white head that leaves a light covering after a slow fade. Lot of lace and light carbonation visible through the mildly cloudy liquid. Nose has lots of bready light sweet malt, citrus and and orange grove. A touch of fusel alcohol sweetness. Light amounts of caramel too. Taste is bang on good. Malt front is quickly folded into a hop showcase that start with a touch of earth and blooms into a bright citrus cascade. Toasted grains give a nice counter to the plentiful hops. Some resiny oil in the clean but slightly long finish that mixes with a bit of light toast and caramel. Medium light crisp feel makes this a delightful thirst quencher with a mild tingly carbonation. A great summer slaker and glorious take on one the classic American styles. While on the strong side for seasoning it seems to fit the bill anyway and will be on my short list for grill day beers.
