12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger off white head with good retention that reduces to a nice thin cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, grapefruit, biscuit, orange, pine, toasted grain, and herbal spiciness. Some nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of big pine, caramel, biscuit, grapefruit, orange, herbal, and toasted malt. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, biscuit, and toasted malt on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of malt and bitterness make this quite easy to drink. Medium carbonation and body.; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a very slight warming after the finish. Very smooth and easy to drink. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. Nice hoppiness and balance; and very smooth to drink.

Was recommended to me at the Cervezorama beer shop in Madrid It was a bit spendy but it was something new to try. Pours a hazy burnt orange into my wine glass. Mild head and minimal lacing. Aroma is piney and citrus. Taste is malt base with some sweetness and hoppy pine flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and hop oily slickness. Not much carbonation. Overall a very pleasant IPA and well worth another try.

A - Hazy, dull orange color, with a fluffy 1 finger head

S - Nice floral and citrus mix

T - Muted citrus, pine is the dominant flavor, there is a definite hop bite that ius balanced off by a caramel like sweetness.

M - Feel is slick, moderate carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden

O - There are so many good IPA's out there and this is another one. My first time having anything from this brewery, and was very pleased. Glad I got a 6 of this on a whim.
