Amber color and slight cloudiness with a white head. Smells of peach, pear, pineapple , dried apricot and slight cherry. Green tea, peach, and pine flavor with a light smoke taste. Medium mouth feel.

12 oz bottle. A FEB 17 15 date on the bottle. Hoping for a packed on rather than an enjoy by.

A: pours a rich amber hue that is relatively clear. bright white head. good retention.

S: pine and citrus. balanced between the two hop aromas, but definitely the first aromas that pop from the glass.

T: a refreshing hop character is enhanced by a toasty malt character. really enough to balance without being a malt heavy brew. bitterness is present, but low. a classic in hop flavor.

M: moderate amount of carb, medium body. no complaints.

D: overall, a well made, easy drinking IPA. Id have seconds.

A really smooth ipa. Well balanced. Could easily crush a sixer, which could be dangerous. (Alcohol hidden well.) Surprised it took me so long to try it.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Gold with a 1/2 finger of white head. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pine, dank greens, grapefruit zest, papaya, and honey.

Taste
Dank greens and sappy pine. Lighter notes of grapefruit zest and papaya. Light caramel and honey backing with residual candy sugars and hints of biscuit.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, smooth, and oily with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Extremely smooth, mellow, and easy drinking. A lot of dankness with a balanced bitterness.
