Poured a 12oz bottle onto my tulip glass.
A- Amber in color with an off white creamy head. The head stuck around for a good while, and left quite a bit of sticky residue up and down the sides of my glass.
S- On the nose it is definitely floral, citrus, caramel, and sweet malt.
T- Caramel and malt, combined with citrus and orange blossom honey. I didn't find this IPA bitter at all, as a matter of fact it reminded me of a Dogfish 90 Minute IPA...very similar in profile.
M- Very clean and thirst quenching. The finish is quite long...I finished this beer about 15 minutes ago and it's still kicking...love it!
D- Ok...IPA's are quickly becoming one of my favorite styles, especially after my buddy Steve hooked me up with the hops. I never thought I'd be saying this, but oh well...it is what it is. This beer is very easy to drink and dangerously smooth!

Pours a clear copper with a big and very persistent head. Lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Smell is big citrusy grapefruit hops. Taste is mellow toasty carmel malt upfront. A little underlying malt sweetness throughout. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness. Heavy creamy mouthfeel. This is a very rich tasting IPA. And by that I mean it has a fantastic maltiness behind the hops and even challenging the hops for center stage here. Also the heavy mouthfeel. Maybe the drinkability suffers a bit, but this is a great, and unique, IPA.

overall a good beer. This IPA seemed to have a little more sweetness than most but overall it seemed to balance out quite well. I like the way high IBUS but was pleased with this one also. Just a touch of creaminess added to the balance. Overall happy with this one. After reading other reviews, I was kind of mixed about trying, but once I did, I was glad I did...
