Poured this undated 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. The body was a bright golden copper color that left a thin lacing in the glass.

The smell was tropical fruit! Pineapple and mango.

The taste was citrus bitterness with a sweet fruity maltiness that both counters and complements the other. Pineapple and mango here too. Such depth of flavor, bright and rich. Well hidden alcohol with a drying finish.

The mouthfeel was medium to full with modest carbonation.

Very easy to drink, so flavorful and fresh.

Thanks so much to Stakem for bringing me one back from the 'Burgh for tenderbranson69 and me to try-enjoyed chilled from the shortneck brown bottle.

The color is deep golden with resplendent clarity and thick off white head with ultra fine bead. The smell is a mix of grapefruit, lemon zest and light tangelo with some herbal natural hop aromas, the dry hopping has done it's job, smell the magic. The feel is very good with lots carbonation allowing the hop resins to seem light on the tongue with a gentle bitterness at first which builds toward the middle until a semi-dry finish with practically no alcohol in the feel.

The taste is great ! I love the fresh squeezed citrus juice flavors from the hops with a blend of grapefruit and valencia orange-tangy juicy taste that spreads out and reveals some vegetative flavor from the more than ample dry hopping with a light spice and very gentle malt sweetness. Overall this deserves the accolades as it is a well crafted American IPA, better than some of my previous favorites -I recommend picking some up if you possibly can!
