Big ups to my man andrenaline for bringing this back from a biz trip down to Calif4nia
A - barely hazy golden orange, tall soapy head retained well, some sticky lacing
S - mild with light floral, grassy, pine, grainy and sweet
T - very perfumy floral hops, oily resin throughout, mild grainy malt
M - light and well carbonated, strong bitter finish
O - a solid drinkable brew, somewhere between and IPA and Double IPA, not sure where it fits better but still worth a go

Poured a very dark cloudy shade of orange with a very sticky lacy head with good retention.

Smell is very bready and buscuity. A slight bit of citrus hops is there as well.

Taste has a big toasted bread malt flavor up front with a very strong pine hop bitter finish. Some mild citrus flavors as well. Very balanced.

Mouthfeel is slightly oily with a very dry finish.

A nice IPA especially on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a pint glass. the liquid is a dark caramel, with nice carbonation. The head is 2 fingers light tan, Fades to some lace.

The smell is quite good, mostly typical IPA, but with a little evidence of malty goodness in the mix.

The Taste follow, the piney hops are complemented by a malt that tries to hold it's own, but the bitter and slightly dry hops win the battle.

The mouthfeel is good , nice body, good carbonation. All in all pleasing to the palette.

The drink ability is good as I might buy this again. Prosit MK

12oz bottle. Pours orange/amber. with a nice long lasting offwhite head. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus notes. Taste is bitter spicy floral hops. Palate is full body with good carbonation. Hops dominate with a slight maltiness at the end as it warms up. Overall a nicely balanced IPA.
