Tap at the BORIS Van Wink Release. Pour is very hazed deep amber with an off white head. Nose is huge citrus blast, orange peel and hints of grapefruit with a small touch of doughy malt underneath. Taste follows suit on hops, huge hop explosion. Tons if juicy orange citrus with some grapefruit notes and bitterness. Notes of dough malt and some cereal grains. Lighter body with nice carbonation and a pillowy feel. Bitterness lingers through the finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into snifter

A: very little head a light amber color slightly hazy

S: this beers smells toffee and like cantaloupe and overripe fruit

T: Cantaloupe cantaloupe cantaloupe very melon tasting and very different slightly bitter on the finish do not know how old this beer is but it's very melon tasting

M: medium feel

O: I was looking for a more citrus tropical fruit explosion so I'm a little blind sided by it being pure melon. That being said it's pretty damn good, I didn't know though this was retired but it's worth looking for if they still brew it.

Look: A hazy golden amber with a nice thick and clingy head. Lots of carbonation.

Smell: Pungent citrus and floral notes as I popped the cap. In the glass a really nice bouquet of citrus fruits and floral notes meld together to make one tasty smelling IPA. Getting lots of nectarine, orange, and tangerine, slightly floral and a big simcoe punch. Malt is there but only to serve as a table setter for the hop feast to come.

Taste: a bit maltier then I imagined on the attack but that fades in to a nice hop attack that mounts slowly but is definitely front and center when it gets there. Once more huge fruity notes like biting into a fresh nectarine! The finish is a bit bitter and earthy but enjoyably so and the fresh citrus sits and buzzes the tongue long after! Very tasty IPA.

Mouthfeel: This beer is medium bodied with lots of nice carbonation and just the slightest smidge of booze. The only real flaw is it's perhaps a bit too full bodied for a single IPA but that is some serious nit picking and this beer more then makes up for it.

Overall: One fantastic IPA. Really impressive offering that is good balanced and the hop billet makes one seriously enjoyable citrus center IPA. Would definitely seek it out again and really impressed especially it's not attached to any coast.
