4.54/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Canned on January 8, 2014; consumed on February 17, 2014 - making this one less than 45 days old.

A: Poured from the can into a pint glass. Body is hazy dark golden with a half-finger white head. Leaves a decent amount of lacing,

S: Citrusy hops, tropical fruit and apricot. Wonderful IPA nose.

T: Modest crackery malt foundation is followed by hops: apricot, lemongrass and tropical fruit, with a touch of grapefruit pith. Pineapple juice comes to mind at times as well. Finishes with a lingering apricot-like hop flavor and a touch of lemony bitterness.

M: Call it medium in heft; carbonation is modest, with a nice creamy feel.

O: Wow. Overall impression is of brightness; it's vibrant with a hop profile that makes it seem lighter than it really is. Very impressed.

Serving type: can

Thanks to moose3285 for handing off this can during our recent Florida trip, which he made even better with his august presence. 12 oz. can hogged all to myself.

The pour is a fogged orange Florida sunset with plenty of life in it. Nose is fruity in a way that presents a moving target. Every time I think of a tropical fruit it appears as if summoned by an act of Merlin. Orange, citrus are the two that seem to keep coming back. Sweet & fruity.

Hopped on the High Seas - Citra is a tastes like a compulsive Hoarder dumped all his fruit into the mash tun. Bejesus amounts of tropical fruits pummel the palate, set off awkwardly by a moderate bitterness. Big citrus & oranges, sans rind, with a fleetingly sweet pin of caramel. Bitterness swells on the finish. Berry juicy, yet strangely dry....do I smell a new fruit? Chiquita engineers? I suppose it's drinkable. I keep sipping & sipping & sipping trying to ferret out whether I like it or not.

The quorum says yes. Not sure at first, but warmed up nicely. Not the red carpet experience that the dry-hopped version is, but a very good brew.
