Bottle into pint glass. Pours a nice yellow-amber color with a one-finger head. Ivory head persists with thick lacing.
Aroma a pleasing balance of sweet malt and colorful hops with a citrus-pine background.
Taste of striking hop flavors as hinted initially by the beer's aroma. Bitter hops linger nicely; however, they are not overwhelming in part due to a strong malt temperance. Straw and pines detectable as background enhancements. The hops remain as an eclectic and lively aftertaste prominent several minutes after consumption. Very impressive.
Mouthfeel smooth and of moderate weight. Carbonation moderate.
Drinkability very good, goes down rapid leaving one wanting for more.
This is an impressive IPA that lives up to all expectations - fine anytime, anywhere, with any meal!

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.
