Wow, what an IPA! Not perfect, but very, very nice. Flavorful with a wonderful aroma.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a murky medium apricot orange brown with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly lasting, diminishing down to a thin film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, spruce and pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), and a slight fruity ester (peaches and pears).

Taste was mildly malty sweet with a touch of caramel in the beginning, progressing with a mild fruitiness along with a nice hoppy bitterness and a citrus peel bite right at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, with a somewhat pronounced bitter citrusy taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a lightly dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall I found this to be a very tasty and well balanced IPA. It possessed a very nice sweet fruity flavor and a somewhat bold citrusy bitterness which balanced each other out superbly, thus concealing the slightly high ABV completely...

Pours a very hazy, murky orange/peach with an off white abundant sticky, clinging head.
Aroma; Get a lot of stringent hops and a combination of grapefruit and orange rinds, along with alcohol.
Taste; More malts than expected but sharp tangy hops still more prominent. I do get some caramel maltiness.
After taste is dry and warming.
Interesting, not to bad at all. A beer that would complement a full meal, but probably not a hot sweat.
