Review from 5/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip.
Pours a medium orange amber. Thin white head, but nice lacing. Intense floral hops and citrus aroma. Piney, citrusy, intense hops, light malt. Powerful hops finish, but the hops are aromatic and interesting to offset the bitterness of the intense finish. Medium mouth feel. A nice, enjoyable IPA. So far this beer camp set is batting 100.

4.03/5 rDev +3.3%
Bottle poured into a pint glass. Shows a golden apricot with a firm half inch cap of foam. Mostly clear but with loads of clingy tiny bubbles sticking to the entire surface area of the glass. Solid lacing follows.
Deep hop aroma with a resinous nature and some citrus sitting on top of that. Touch of tropical fruit and spice with warming. Bit dank in a good way.
Taste is lightly creamy with lots of citrus and hop spice through the palate. Offers a fairly long finish of hop spice and bready malts with a tinge of citrus. Pleasantly lacking any caramel notes. Carbonation lends a nice feel to the brew.
Overall not as fresh and bright as when first had late summer but has held up well for the style. Just a touch of citric sweetness is present while the ABV is never a factor on the palate.
