Pours a tangerine color with a half finger of head, pretty clear.

Smell is 100% hops, wow. Grapefruit, citrus peel, pine, wow.

Taste is more of the same, grapefruit peel, pine, citrus really can not taste any malt and it is fine by me! underlying sweet orange flavors

Mouthfeel is medium light, sharp carbonation.

Wow, good thing I can not get this because I would be drinking this daily!! All Hops here and I loved it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottled in April 2013. Poured into Greenbush snifter

Appearance is clear and light golden orange

Smell is dank earthy piney hops. Smells like simcoe hops to me

Taste is dominated by hops. Nice bitterness with a piney citrusy fruit taste from the hops. Not getting much from the malt and I don't mind since I like hop forward ipas. Very slight sweetness is all I get from the malt

Mouthfeel is very nice. Medium carbonation and a dry feel

Overall this would be one of my go to standard ipas if it were readily available here. Will pick up whenever I see this
