Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. Bright orange with yellow highlights. Millions of medium sized carbonation bubbles lead to a small one finger head that is more tan than it is white in color and creamy and rocky in appearance. Lace seems to want to play and is sticking very well.

Smell is very bright and full of citrus and pine. Yellow grapefruit, pineapple and some more mellowed smells of mango. Just a fantastic nose. Reminds me of fresh Union Jack.

Taste is bitter and a bit of a sneaker at that. First flavors I get are mellow bitter and mild malt. Then the swallow goes deeper on the tongue and gets the tart of a yellow grapefruit and as it goes down a sweeter flavor of pineapple and mango come out. There is just a hint of alcohol as well.

Mouth is crisp with a thin body and medium to high carbonation. Finish is on the long side and a bit wrecking of the palate. Very nice though.

Overall I am very happy to get the chance at this one. It doesn't have a very large distribution so to get a 4 pack of this in Arizona I can only thank rpbuckey for the chance at this hop lovers gem.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- Clear golden orange, slight haze upon swirl. A massive three finger white head with good retention.

S- Intense citrus. A ton of pineapple, pine, lemon, mango. A sugary sweet malt backbone. Delightful stuff.

T- A slight bitterness at front. A tong of citrus to this beer. A massive grapefruit flavor to it. A ton of pineapple, lemon and pine as well. A massively hopped west coast style IPA. The citrus is really extenuated by a sugary sweet malt backbone that work to enhance the hop profile.

M- Bitter and extremely dry. But drinkable. A hop bite on the tongue.

O- An incredible IPA. A hop forward IPA but not big enough to where it is undrinkable. Super fresh hop flavors. I cant get this in my area so I'm kicking myself for only buying a single :(
