12 oz bottle.

Appearance - Pours a hazy apricot with a finger of foamy white head.

Smell - citrus and piney hops, tropical fruits (passionfruit, mango), citrus, grapefruit peel, hint of pine resin, bready caramalts.

Taste - Starts off with a nice pungent hit from the citrus and piney hops then goes into the tropical fruits (passionfruit, mango), citrus, grapefruit peel, bready caramalts and hint of pine resin.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness from the citrus and piney hops.

Overall - A stellar American IPA. A solid hop profile. This is my kind of IPA. All the hopheads out there will be happy this one.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to a snifter.

A: Deep orange with slight haze. A thin head forms at the top.
S: Strong smell of orange peel and other bright citrus.
T: Starts off sweet with a strong malt base. Citrusy hops coming in midway. Dank hop flavors peek through, bringing in added pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruits. Finishes dry, leaving an aftertaste for a few seconds.
M: Medium. Aftertaste lingers a little longer than expected.
O: Very nice strong IPA. Reminds me of a weak Imperial IPA.
