22oz bottle poured into a DFH IPA glass
A: Dark orange with a slight brownish tint. Lingering two-finger head
S: Lots of fresh hops. Pine/citrus in particular. A bit of pepper/spice and a hint of caramel malt buried towards the end
T: More fresh hops. More citrus than the nose with less pine influence. Still a bit of spice/caramel. Very fresh tasting
M: Medium-bodied, crisp/fresh
O: A fine beer that shows fresh hops at their best

22 oz poured into snifter

A: very dark copper colored very little head nice little ring around the glass left great retention on the glass it's clingy

S: smells like honey, melon cantaloupe, honeydew, a little toffee on the finish

T: very smooth overripe fruit with the honey use cantaloupe taste, a very little pine on the finish but finishes like a nice fruit

M: it coats the mouth but doesn't cling too much nice feel lingering aftertaste

O: very good beer, really wish I would have grabbed another wet hopped with Citra as far as my tastes buds can tell. Very beautiful honey and sweet cantaloupe taste reminiscent of GLBC Alchemy Hour. if you get a chance get this in you.

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a hazy, kinda dirty orange and brown color with no head and no lace.

S- Pretty big and bright floral and citrusy hops with a caramel malt backbone.

T- Lots of very bright and fresh hop character of floral, citrusy, and leafy hops. There was a very nice and pronounced sweet caramel malt backbone that complemented the hops very well.

M- Very dry and refreshing, medium boy, soft carbonation, and very smooth.

O- This is an incredible IPA bursting with fresh hops. This beer packs a big hop punch,but the malt backbone is really outstanding and makes this beer special.
