Served on tap into a nonic glass.
A- Poured an orange color with white soapy head that dissipated instantly and left no lace.
S- Huge pungent peach, pineapple, and tropical hop goodness.
T- Huge pungent pineapple, peach, citrus, and tropical fruit notes, some dank, piney, and astringent hop character with a sweet caramelized bready malt backbone.
M- Pretty big warming, very smooth, medium to fuller bodied for the style, and incredibly dry.
O- Really awesome IPA exploding with juicy tropical hop character. This IPA really highlights Citra hops very well.

Thanks to DogFishJoe for this.
Bomber into a snifter, very hazy apricot body with a finger high head of white. It has some decent retention and a smattering of loosely formed lacing around the glass.
Floral hops are front and center on the nose quite a bit of orange citrus and secondary pine and grasses. The orange citrus sweetness blends well with the sweet caramel and cookie dough malt. Brief hints at the alcohol and plentiful yeast.
Bready malt, somewhat thin but supplemented by the plentiful yeast. Sweetness is of honey soaked toast and a light toffee that is quickly engaged by the hops. Plentiful grapefruit rind and orange citrus, oily pine and light resin to follow. Moderate bitterness and alcohol buzz that puts it at a IPA+ range.
Moderate carbonation, the first half of the bottle was somewhat thin in the malt but once the yeast got into the glass this beer got weighed down and fell down a notch. Alcohol is pretty well hidden and the moderate bitterness welcomes in just enough drying.
A good IPA, plentiful yeast really hurt this so drink it colder with careful pouring to get the most out of the bright hops that are a tick stronger than most other IPAs in both aroma and flavor.
