Special thanks to Phyl21ca for sending this beer out west in a great trade.

A:Giant 3 fingers of creamy bone coloured head, it settles down in large craters and chunks. A hazy apple juice colour, with a few larger pieces of sediment suspended.

S: A smooth pine scent, presumably from the malts that tone down the sharpness. Yeast and bread blooms after a solid swirl.

T: Hoppy in the front with strong pine and pithy lemons. Middle notes of sweet caramel malts which leads to a lingering bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied with low carbonation which leads to a smooth finish.

O: Much greater amounts of malts than what I was expecting which results in a very smooth brew. Lots of hops and a nice bitter finish yet very balanced.

Read that mrandypandy was going to the brewery in a random mass BM and going to be at a bar in Atlanta a few days after so he graciously got me a 4 pack and I'll forever thank him.

Appearance: Pours a bright orange color with a finger of a white head.

Smell: Smells of pungent hop aromas. Super fresh smelling with tons of tropical fruit and some pine. Sugary syrupy sweetness on the end.

Taste - Taste mirrors the nose with a lingering candy like taste at the end that sticks around. Some bitterness on the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel.

Overall: In my top 5 IPAs ever. So much tropical fruits, sweet liquid candy flavors. So good.
