4/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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.

Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

3.15/5 rDev -21.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
