look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: An orange hued light amber with excellent clarity. The persistant, creamy and rocky off-white head leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass.

S: A moderate hops aroma of grapefruit, pine and citrus hops aroma with a clean malt sweetness. There is some grassiness from dry hoping. There is a mild fruit ester, mostly orange and a little bit of alcohol.

T: A moderately strong hops flavor tasting of grapefruit, citrus and pine. There is just enough malt to support a strong hops bitterness that only gets a little rough on the tail end of a long bitter aftertaste. The balance is firmly bitter with a dry finish. There is a touch of esters.

M: Medium bodied with moderately-strong carbonation. A very faint astringency that seems to be derived from the high hops bill. There is a some creaminess and no warmth.

O: An outstanding IPA with a spectacular flavor. I don't really want to pair this one with food, I just want to enjoy the out of this world hops flavor. I want a bigger punch of hops in the nose though more aroma hops would make me very happy but would happy buy this again and again. I just which it was a little more affordable at $5.99 for 12 ounces and with no bottling date this will be a rare treat.
