Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Pours a finger of creamy yellow eggshell head, body is a slightly hazy deep orange copper, leaving some great glass-coating lacing.
Smell - Just a ton of bready malt, fresh yeasty bread dough, over-ripe sweet citrus, whiff of grapefruit and a good amount of floral hops.
Taste - Oh is this good, opens with huge semi-sweet floral hops, mild citrus of ruby grapefruit and blood oranges, huge semi-sweet bready malt, touch of yeast, finishes with an almost lightly spiced pumpernickel bread with crusts, nice bittering green floral hops, and some grapefruit pith.
Mouthfeel - Nearly medium with all of these wonderful full bodied flavors, carb is medium and begins smooth, but gets a little prickly with some nice edges towards the back of the tongue, just enough cleansing to usher in the more bitter, savory and drying hop characteristics.
Overall - This is definitely a unique ipa, but it is one that i must try again - really great flavors here, great depth, complexity and balance. Has flavors found in good apa's, pil's and wheat beers too - definitely try this and see what you think. I like this alot.

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...
