sampled less than 1 month of bottling: hazy pumpkin colored orange with a dense layer of ivory foam that has just unbelievable retention...it left thick rings down the glass. awesome. big fat bubbles of struggling carbonation. sweet aroma of over-ripened grapefruit and cookie dough. sturdy medium body, even carbonation renders a full but refreshing mouthfeel. dollop of juicy grapfruit and sugar coated pine cone flavor. bitterness is there but tempered by juicy sweetness of the hops. malt holds up well but remains in the background. delicously drinkable, goes down almost too fast. the quaffability factor is out of this world.
i'll take this one fresh out of the bottle over the tap any day. bright, sweet, and exploding with flavor. i think i've found a new favorite session ipa. awesome stuff.
