Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Southampton Publick House pint. 12.13.13 version. Bottled 11/8/13, so a week old!! Bought at Whole Foods Newport Beach CA for $ 7.99.
A - Dark golden (on the edge of orange). Eggshell head leaves OK lacing.
S - Very hoppy. Catpiss first, then underlying peaches, apricots, and mangos.
T - Again very bright tropical notes upfront. Definite catpiss component, plus the peaches, apricots, mango flavors. Bitterness creeps in on the finish, but not harsh. Their is a slight sweet malt backbone that makes it smooth. There is a slight alcohol note, but not off-putting. It accentuates the hop flavors.
M - Crisp and light for the ABV. Carbonation is medium high and lively. Makes it seem like a lighter beer than it is.
O - Great beer nose-wise. The smell really pops and makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I also really like the hop combinations. Had the last version on tap at the brewery and thought it was more malty and boozy.

Great, strong IPA from start to finish....not everything is a perfect score, but this comes pretty darn close. Love the piney taste to this one. Lots left on the palate so i suggest drinking this one last or by itself. I had the 4.20.14 batch and I am reviewing based on that.
Serving type: on-tap
