Good old 22oz bottle with a straight forward label. I can tell as Im pouring that the rapidly forming head will be sticky and resilent, it didnt make a liar our of me. The head is a white dimpled monster that leaves nice, intricate webs of lacing down the glass. The body of the beer is a ruby tinted copper with a slight haze, sparse little chunks of matter here and there and almost no visible carbonation. The nose is vibrant and dominated by citrusy hop aromas, light hints of pine and blending with the sweet malt backing creates a lovely apricot aroma. Flavor-wise this IPA is a bit sweeter and less dry than many of the style. Sweet and sticky with caramel up front, picking up a subtle bubble-gum/cotton candy sweetness flavor as well. The bitterness is moderate (a bit less than preferable), the hop flavors are lovely. The tart fruitiness of the hops both create their own and meld with the flavors of the malt to create diverse flavors of honey drizzled watermelon, honey-dew, apricot, and grape-fruit tossed with a sparse sprinkling of pine needles. Mouthfeel is near-still and medium bodied, very nice. This is a very balanced IPA. Looking forward to having it again.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on 4/18/14.
A- Hazy orange with reddish accents. Poured with a thin 1/4 finger head that moved to a quick lace within a minute.
S- Pale malts, biscuit, some faint citrus and grass.
T - Very subdued, more like an English IPA. Mango, orange, dirt and grass on the finish, with some spice lurking in the background.
M - Carbonation is medium low, a touch watery, but very smooth refreshing.
O - Not sure if being three months old muted the hops some. Either way, this is a highly drinkable IPA that goes down fast. Will seek it out again if I find it closer to the bottle on date.
