A: Slightly hazy light amber color with a finger worth of head that lasts forever. Great retention, great lacing.
S: Big guava and citrus smell. I get a slight pine smell in the background.
T: Pretty similar to the taste, but more pine and less guava and citrus. I'm noticing a lot of bittering hops with less on the end of the boil. Good, but not great.
M: Light with good carbonation.
O: I really like the smell, but the beer is a bit more bitter and less flavorful than I'd like. Overall, a pretty solid IPA, though.

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
