Hands down one of the best IPAs I've had. The floral and citrus notes explode! I was surprised how clean the taste was with such a cloudy pour. Wonderful flavor! Sweet, hoppy, & a bit of a floral note. Clean finish.

[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...
