12 oz. bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear gold color with a two inch white head.

Smell: Bursting with citrus and grapefruit along with some floral hop notes and just a hint of mango. Excellent.

Taste: Keeps the same hop profile as the aroma with citrus and floral hops. A bit of grassiness as well. Bittering hops come through in a big way. Honestly, the bitterness overpowers the hop flavor a bit - The citrus seems muted compared to the aroma. I think a little more malt backbone would benefit this beer - there's really nothing to hold up to the bitterness. Still a very solid IPA.

Mouthfeel: Extremely dry, very crisp. Bitterness lingers on the palate big time.

Overall: A very good IPA that could be truly incredible with something to hold the bittering hops in check.

12 oz bottle poured into a DFH IPA Glass

A- A clear golden copper with a four finger white head.

S- Pine, resin, grapefruit, mango, some spices, very hoppy.

T- Piney, grapefruit, citrus, some pineapple, resin, very, very hoppy, light malt backbone.

M- Smooth, crisp, medium body.

O- A great IPA that I would love to have again, so hoppy that it tastes like a DIPA. Really hope this comes to MD or DE soon, really good stuff.
