I was expecting more out of this. I've had it in the past prior to my craft evolution and thought it was better then. Palate has definitely changed over the years.

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.
