Thanks to a generous trader for sending this as an extra. Pours the color of honey with poofy white head. Tastes and smells as advertised - great tropical fruit notes. Super well balanced with malt. Love the super fresh flavor. Overall, a fantastic IPA, and I usually don't like IPAs.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet. Really glad I got to try this one at long last!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber with an orangish hue. There is a half finger of off white head that leaves a thin layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Now we're talking. Juicy citrus hops with some tropical fruit notes. A touch of sweetness and some pine as well.

Taste: Just like the smell, full of juicy citrus peel hops. I'm getting some tropical fruit and some pine needles from the hops. Just a touch of malt sweetness, enough to balance things out, but the hops definitely do their thing. The finish is bitter with a hint of spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a somewhat dry finish.

Overall: This is a fantastic IPA. I was so glad to get to try it, and it was extremely fresh too. I would jump at the chance to get more.
