Poured from the bottle into my DFH Snifter.
A--Poured a murky caramel color. Lot of light shines through when held up to the light. There was a giant eggshell white frothy head when poured, but it dissipated quickly. Not a lot of retention on the glass.
S--First thing I get is a floral scent. It's like walking through a garden. Then comes citrusy notes--grapefruit, orange peel, and lemon zest. The beers ends with a sweet caramel/malt finish.
T--Pretty hoppy, but not overly so. The bitterness on the tongue tastes like I'm munching on a flower. The citrus balances well with the hops and sweetness of the caramel. It's very balanced on the palate.
M--Medium bodied. Very little carbonation. The sweetness is sticky, but the bitterness on the aftertaste really balances the beer.
O--This is a good, almost very good IPA. Not something I would want as a staple, but glad I picked up a bottle to try.
