look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into becker pint glass. Clear yellow-gold with lots of carbonation and a thick fizzy white head that fades a bit into a thick puck of foam. Smell is lots of floral and citrusy hops. Lots of lacing on the glass after my first sip; taste is clean malts, not quite sweet, with some citrusy hop flavors and tons of bitterness over the slight sticky malt aftertaste. A great and unique IPA, worth trying for anyone who loves hoppy beers.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It has a nice copper color with a small white head.

S: Citrus hops with some sweet undertones.

T: Hoppy, bitter--everything you'd expect from an IPA. A nice citrusy flavor, and there is a certain sweetness to it at the end of each taste.

M: Mid-Body with fair carbonation. Very crisp, and enjoyable in a cooler afternoon.

O: People warn that this IPA is extremely bitter, but it really isn't that bitter. It is rather crisp for being an IPA, and very drinkable. It is definitely one of my favorite IPAs, but I mostly drink DIPAs and TIPAs when I am in the mood for something hoppy.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, best before 8/26/13 nice. Poured down the center and got a massive 2 inch white billowy head, that leaves beautiful lacing. The beer itself is a yellow orange and a little hazy. The smell is grapefruit, pine, tangerine, and pineapple. Taste is all of that, with grapefruit being most dominant in the beginning and the end, with the other flavors lending a hand in the middle. Body is medium, plenty of life, on the dry side, and very drinkable. This really one of the greats! Like someone else said, a bench mark. I haven't had many better.
