Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and tons of effervescence. There are also a few hop bits floating around in there ... nice. Head is a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam. An attractive beer!

Smell: rich aroma with a nice malty base and loads of piney hop character. There's some nice grapefruit and a good earthiness mixed in there as well. Quite good indeed.

Taste: oh, wow, this is good. Rich maltiness which is sweet but not too sweet, plus the piney/grapefruity flavor and a solid but not overdone bitterness. Surprisingly smooth for an IPA with this much flavor. Sha ZAM.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, satisfying creaminess; especially good for an IPA.

Overall: a highly delicious beer. It is one of the most full-flavored IPAs I've ever had, and although the onslaught of flavor might prevent me from drinking it all day, it's still very quaffable. Kudos!

Pours a hazed honey copper color with two fingers of white foam.

The Nose picks up sweet malt with citrus and floral hops.

Taste follows the nose with sweet clover honey, floral notes. Balanced citrus and malt flavor. Finishes slightly dry with lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and full with a nice balanced malt and hop profile. Medium effervescence.

Overall a great gift from a friend at 3 Floyds!
