A: Pours a light orange with a huge white, thick 3" head that disapates very slowly, leaving a decent amount of lacing. I'm not kidding when I say thick, this thing looks like bubble bath. It almost started flowing out of my glass and I even stopped pouring early. Very impressive. Quite a few little bubbles can be seen racing to the top.
S: Very stong smell of sweet fruitiness and lots and lots of piney hops.
T: This is a very aggressivly hopped beer. There is a little bit of sweetness in the first taste, but it is immidiatly overtaken by the hops and dosn't come back. The piney hops are there from begining to end and even in the aftertaste, although the aftertaste didn't linger very long which kind of surprised me.
M: Extremely smooth, small bubbles rapidly dance on the tongue while you take in the flavor. Goes down very easy.
D: This is a damn good IPA and very easy to drink. It goes down so smooth and taste so good I'm tempted to chug it like Gatorade. This is the essential summer beer. Tasty and very thirst quenching. I couldn't ask for more in a beer.

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
