[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a hazy orange with a nice reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thick puddled film and medium collar with excellent full sheeting of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).
The taste was bitter sweet and decently malty with a light touch of caramel and a hint of grapefruit early on, becoming a bit hoppier and having a slight citrus peel bitterness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a mild citrus peel bitterness left behind to linger a bit longer on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, oily texture and a carbonation that was quite lively.
Overall this was a smooth and easy to drink IPA with a nice well rounded flavor. It was a brew that was not overpowered by an excessive bitterness, but rather blended together well with the caramel sweetness creating a pleasurable drinking experience...

A - Pours a very hazy orange yellow color, minimal head, and thin or no lacing at all.
S - Sweet malts, very minute citrus hop smell, pine
T - The sweeter malts outweigh all the other flavors in this, and they're not even that strong. Very little hop presence in this brew.
M - Thin, very watery, bitter sweet malt clings for small time
O - This is a crap beer, and even worse IPA, this should be considered a lame pale ale at best. This has very base, weak flavors that give you nothing short of an unsatisfied palate. No hops to qualify this as an IPA.
Tommyknocker, could you for once please prove me wrong about your beer?
