A beautiful looking beer. A clear ruby copper color with good carbonation. The head is tall with a dense but fluffy white color. Plenty of lacing as it fades. A nice contrast to the copper glow underneath.
Aroma is nicely balanced with fresh wet hops vaguely floral. Sweet caramel malts serve as a sweet bouy for the hops. Fantastic understated aromatics.
Taste is awesome and pretty much perfect for me.
A perfectly balanced brew with hops being bold and flavorful but not the bitter overload you can get in other IPA's. The hops here floral to piney for me were sweet and fresh.
Malts carryied the load with confidence. Slightly grainy at end.
Sweet bitterness smacks the lips at the aftertaste, though it's not really bitter.
Thats what I like about this beer, everything is in perfect harmony.
Drinks smooth and has a border line heavy feel on the palette. Drinks clean.
A beer of the highest quality. This is why I drink quality over quantity.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a nice light copper colour with lovely frothy white head that retains well

S - Light sweet candy, citrus notes, including a little grapefruit and pineapple.

T - Sweet maltiness, some caramel and light toffee present together very hoppy citrus, grapefruit very prominent with a well balanced slightly tangy, bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation

O - Very impressed! Alot going on with its tangy citrus hoppiness but I love the balanced slightly bitter finish. Highly recommend for a terrific IPA
