A- Damn im a sucker for a nice amber IPA. Its got a coffee like head that is a bout a finger and a half for me in a Mellow Mushroom tumbler glass.
S- When i smell this beer, i first smell fresh wheat, malt and some honey. I really enjoy the smell of this beer.
T- defiantly get a nice floral taste like the bottle promises, but isent the hoppiest beer Ive had in the IPA category. Its a fairly
easy drinking IPA which is kind of hard to come by in the beer world.
M- Mellow and smooth. The hop bitter ness lasts on the tongue.
D- Good IPA but not one of my favorite, but a definite strong hop head IPA! Alcohol sticks out to me which also is a factor in this beers grade.
If you like great craft beer, go to your local store and ask for this beer. It deserves some other opinions.

Another brewery I missed a lot of reviews for some reason, this shouldn't be too old despite the lack of date.
Pours a nice creamy fluffy 1 finger head with some bubbles popping in the middle as it fades at a slow pace, nice lacing all over too, nice rosy amber red color, hazy.
Nose lots of candy malts, syrupy sweet caramel, little toffee, etc, candied orange peel, little citrus zest, fruity hops, hint of pineapple and citrus, etc, hint of booze wafting out. Aroma of an aged IPA unfortunately.
Taste brings a bit more sweetness, candy malts, syrupy, caramel, toffee, etc, with a little candied orange peel, little zest, some citrus and hint of pineapple, not really tropical fruit though, bit of warming booze. Again that aged hop IPA note. Finish is a bit sweet and candy like, fair bitterness, little toffee and caramel, little pineapple and bitter orange peel, etc.
Mouth is med bod, bit of warming booze, decent carb but not great.
Overall OK, but seems like it is aged a bit, not a great IPA at least this day and age, more like a muted aged IPA with flashes of what could have been good. Lots more malty, lighter on the hops, etc. I'll have to try this again if I can find it fresh, but with no date on the bottle it'll be hard. Maybe if I ever find a draft version.
