look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

32oz. growler poured into DFH Signature goblet. Filled a few hours ago out of a recently tapped keg at Kreston's.

A - Pours a bright amber/orange color with a full finger of cream colored head. The head fades pretty quickly, but leaves behind splotchy lacing. Darker than is typical for the style. Good looking beer.

S - Lively aroma full of freshly peeled tangerine, honey, and pine cone. Tropical sweetness and hoppy bitterness dance wonderfully on the nose. I can smell it from the table a few feet away from where I am sitting. Fantastic.

T - Pine hops are prominent throughout the flavor. Some citrus and caramel malt, but lacks the vibrant citrus quality I got in the nose. Bitter and dry on the back end. Hoppy and delicious.

M - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Dry finish.

O - I have been waiting to review this one until I could find it fresh in my area. Typically the bottles that sit on the shelves around here are approaching/past their expiration dates. I jumped at the chance to get a growler filled. This is a beer that others in the style should be measured against. Great hop presence, but not overpowering. Although the aroma is the highlight, all of the other aspects are well above par. This will continue to be one of my go-to IPAs, when I can find it on draft or fresh in the bottle.

Serving type: growler
