I received this in a trade with woemad. Thank You again buddy!

I wanted to try this brew for a long time now. I got it! This brew pours gorgeous! Honey tone with almost a burnt orange tinge. Nice white head. Let's smell this brew! First hits of tropical fruits and floral notes, then a hit of nice honey wheat malts. Very dense on the aroma. Time got the taste test! Very resinous with the flavors going toward juicy over-ripped pineapple and hints of passion fruit. Some red papaya with grapefruit pith and leaves a nice clean bitter finish. Malts are honey sweetness with some wheat cracker powder. Very nice! The feel is medium bodied with par carbonation.

Overall: This brew is very good! Enjoyable to boot and finishes so clean it aches for another sip! Could I kill a four or six pack of this? Yes I could! Am I glad I tried this brew? Yes, yes I am! Would I want more when it comes out again? You betcha! This brew is recommended!

I've never said anything about this until now.
Okay, well now I will.
The appearance was a nice golden amber color with a decent one finger white foamy head leading to a decent lacing.
The smell was exceptionally floral and citrusy bittersweet.
The taste took the floral and citrusy aspects to combine more than nicely.
The mouthfeel was sharp but not too overbearing, its an AIPA that lives up to the Northwest style of AIPA.
Overall, so glad to come at this again, as I've had this several times. Ya know, this lives up to its somewhat under-hyped-ness.

A - Deep orange.
S - Juicy fruit
T - Balanced hop and sweet, tropical fruit flavor. Semi-crisp.
M - Medium carbonation and density. Smooth and juicy.
O - World-class, all-around, balanced IPA. A Pacific Northwest favorite.
