22oz poured into tulip. Pours hazy bright orange with a two finger head. Smell is tons of pine resin, citrus fruits, sweet hops, biscuit. Taste is lots of pine, lemon, melon,earthy, tons of west coast style hops but very balanced, not too bitter, no ral malt caricature. Mouthfeel is to be expected. This ipa has tons of pine and citrus. It's very drinkable and extremely delicious, reminds me of pliney IN THE RESPECT that it doesnt try to be an in your face hop bomb, its just so well balanced. glad I got to visit the brewery and bring this back to Columbus. Plus the label is awesome

Bottled on 05/08/13

Slightly hazy, golden-orange with a big, fluffy, lumpy, bright white head leaving behind decent lace and retention. Very floral and fruity hops with some fragrant honey mixed in. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruit but I can honestly discern melon for the first time in a while and I always want to taste it. Similar taste with a great body. So damn smooth. The right carbonation. Everything is spot-on with this beer and it surpassed my expectations. Phenomenal IPA.

22oz bomber
A) Pours with a two finger head that settles slowly. Clear bronze body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Peach. Grapefruit. Subtle pepper. Hints of pine. Floral notes.
T) Bold hops up front. Grapefruit. Slight buttery caramel notes. Lingering hop bite in the finish.
M) Medium light body. Tannic like an orange peel. Very drinkable and fairly smooth if your familiar with IPAs.
O) A delicious, easy drinking IPA. I'd definitely have another one.

Can shared by stillmatic2232.

Pours a hazy amber orange, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells very fresh and delicious- lots of citrus hops, very floral as well, which makes sense given the name.

The taste is similar. Nicely juicy, with orange, pineapple, and grapefruit, along with a finish full of hop resins and oils. Only a small amount of sweet grainy malt is present, doesn't distract from the hop bonanza.

Medium bodied, light and airy on the palate. Mouthfeel is crisp and fairly dry, with a medium amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

This is an excellent IPA, juicy and delicious.
