4.69/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: A foam head, about an inch thick, sat on top of a hazy light-orange body. Sticky white lacing throughout.
Smell: Floral extravaganza! The hops stood out, as they should. Notes of citrus and herbs also stand out. Very pleasant scent.
Taste: This was one potent IPA. This beer came off pretty sour after the first sip. Complex notes citrus break through. Eventually the malts come in and attempt to contain the dominating taste of hops. There is a great balance between the hops and malts for this IPA.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth, perfect carbonation.
Overall: This IPA seems to get all of the attention. I have enjoyed a number of great IPAs but this one stands out. Drinking one of these is an experience. Definitely a great example of a top-notch IPA.
Bottom Line: I'd recommend this to everyone, but if you are not a hop head, just sample it.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
Serving type: on-tap
