A - This was a gorgeous beer from the first pour. Three finger, off-white head; bright but thick copper color, filled with carbonation; long-lasting head with tons of lacing. No floaties. Active and alive.
S - I could smell the pine and citrus from feet away! Slightly dank, and slight floral. Mango, bare hint of grapefruit. Very clean and smart. Huge floral notes as it warms; smells like a walk in a garden.
T - Unbelievably smooth. Floral honey and citrus surrounds the tongue; tons of flavoring hops, but no significant astringency. Slight tobacco and citrus peel aftertaste. Absolutely alive all over my mouth. Take that however you want; this is fantastic. Flavorful like a DIPA...
M - ...but lighter drinking, like a single IPA. Supremely balanced. No sting, barest alcohol warmth. Perfect drinking beer. Medium to medium-full.
O - I was really worried this beer wouldn't live up to the hype; instead, it blew away my expectations. I cannot say enough about this beer; I haven't been as impressed with an IPA since I first sipped Enjoy By.

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
