12oz bottle into a pint glass. Many thanks to a great new trader, Belthor, for sending a bottle of this my way as an extra.
A - Pours a dark murky copper/orange with a 1.5 finger creamy off-white head, which retains very nicely by the way... Solid lacing is left on the glass as you enjoy this one.
S - Pungent aromas of floral and tropical notes. It smells like oranges, tangerines, and mangos. Slight caramel undertones. If you have the willpower to savor this beer without just gulping it down, the aromas really begin to shine as the beer warms a bit.
T - Very orange-y type fruits like you get in the smells dominate the flavor. Delicious. Slight maltiness is more noticeable when the beer warms a bit. Mild hop bitterness up front with a nice drying finish. No presence of alcohol. Piney notes in the aftertaste.
M - Good medium bodied brew with a well balanced mild carbonation.
D - This a great IPA that I'd love to have over and over. My glass was empty before I knew it and I was left craving more. Solid.
