Bottling date of 05/13/14

Appearance - Pours relatively clear and golden in color with an eggshell white finger width head. Good retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Lacing is fair with decent stick.

Smell - Beautiful aroma; a bouquet of citrus with orange at the forefront, while notes of grapefruit, pine and pineapple sit beneath. A touch of breadiness comes into play as the brew warms.

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange peel bitterness upfront, along with moderate pine and grapefruit with a trace of pineapple bite. Malts come through lightly once the brew warms, hinting at bready qualities. Light pepper spice. Finishes with some dankness and a lingering citrus pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fair carbonation. Goes down easy enough.

Overall - A great IPA, bordering on excellent. A little more balance would be nice, but hey, it's an IPA, so it falls well within the boundaries. Personally, could do without some of the dank, but it's not too much that it kills it for me.

Puffy white head over pale brass.
Mad kronik nose with some flowers.
Lean salty wheat crackers with lemon zest, pine needle and sappy hops.
Lt-med, oily, round.

Light but oily with dank, cannabis hops. Yet, a bit too full and cloying. Sticky hops exacerbate an overly sturdy malt backbone and lose some of the zesty aroma that could be there.

Purchased 22oz from local Ledgers liquor store. Very nice IPA, well balanced and not too bitter. Easy drinking ale which can be drunk on its own or with food. Light in color and pleasant mouthfeel. Pleasant drinker cold or a little warmer.

Will certainly buy again.
