[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a hazy copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that had great retention, lasting throughout and producing excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was mildly sweet with a grain malt, floral and herbal hops and a sweet yeast with notes of citrus (orange), caramel, pineapple and mango.
The taste was a bit malty sweet with a slight bitter undertone and a hint of caramel and a mild fruit ester early on, but became very hoppy with a bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor lingered for a good long while following consumption, being mostly of a bitter citrus taste.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a well rounded IPA, nice and bitter yet sweet and fruity...

In a teku
A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4
S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4
T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4
M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4
Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
