Recieved as an extra in a trade an dpoured into my Duvel tulip. Canned on 7/3/14

A - Poured a nice crystal clear straw gold hue with a a billowy three finger head that fades to leave sticky side lacing and a thin blanket. Head kind of exploded on this one. 4.25 (x .05 = .213)

S - Aromas of big, bolder hops. Wet bitter citrus peel, grapefruit, pineapple, mango. The grapefruit really really pops on this and outshines the pine that is there at well. Just a classic west coast IPA aroma profile here. 4.5 (x .2 = .9)

T - Taste is similar to the nose here. More of those awesome awesome bitter wet citrus notes. Great balance of pine and grapefruit peel/pith here with flashes of pineapple and even some stone fruit every now and then. A little malty sweetness to keep things in check here but make no mistake, this is a hop heavy IPA. The finish is pleasantly bitter with faint resins. No alcohol on the pallet, really delicious. 4.5 (x .45 = 2.025)

M - Mouthfeel is a bit lighter, though not thin, with lower carbonation. Probably my only knock against this would be wanting it to be brighter and more carbonation. 4 (x .1 = .4)

O - Overall this is a prime example of a well executed west coast IPA. The nose and taste really pops here, my only knock would be the mouthfeel though even that was decent enough. Very well crafted IPA. 4.25 (x .2 = .85)
