This is an excellent IPA and I look forward to finishing the remainder of the 6-pack. I poured the 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass and took note of the nice foamy head -- about an inch in all. The beer is amber-colored.
As others have written, it is a very well-hopped IPA with a nice citrus aroma and taste. I actually did not find it all that bitter, but my taste buds are used to drinking beers in this genre. In any case, I found the hops to be sufficiently balanced to take the most bitter edge off of the hops. It still tilts generously towards the hops, but it has a very pleasing taste.

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.
