This beer pours out as a nice looking copper color. The head was white with a decent lacing to it. The smell of the beer was slightly sweet with big notes of pine like citrus. The taste of the beer was full of bitter hops along with some grapefruit flavors. The mouthfeel of the beer wasn't too heavy at all, it's got a bitter lingering feeling to it. Overall I thought this was a pretty good brew.

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
A: Pours a hazy orange with lots of fine particles in suspension. Two inch white head settles shortly. Rings of fine, sticky lacing.
S: Mango and orange pulp, faint pine undertones, floral elements, sugary grapefruit. Doughy malt base. Pretty decent, but perhaps a bit generic.
T: Orange pulp and grapefruit pith. Modest pine and resin bitterness with hints of grapefruit and lemon peel. Just the slightest notion of pineapple. Malt tastes of biscuit and slight cracker. Fairly dry. Finishes with mild resin/rind bitterness and fleeting citrus notes.
M: Lighter in body, mild tingling carbonation scrubs the palate and adds a crisp, refreshing element. Very smooth.
O: It won't blow your mind, but it's a decent, easy-drinking IPA. A good beer for when you just want to knock a few back without having to think too much about it.

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.
