Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an English style pint glass.
Body is a crystal clear golden amber, obviously filtered. Fluffy 1 finger head that dissipated fairly quick and left decent lacing in the glass.
Smells of tons of grapefruit and pine!
Hop astringency right away with the pine, citrus and a mild mint-like flavor at the end. A nice malty sweetness rounds it out on the finish. Right amount of hops just lingering in between each sip, just enticing you to keep drinking more.
Overall: No doubt at all as to why it has won some many awards and kudos from hop heads every where! A great IPA that is hoppy as hell, yet is balanced enough to not be over abrasive. Glad to have finally gotten this one to try, bonus is there are still 2 more in the fridge!
Thanks to jzeilinger for picking up a 4 pack for me from the 'burgh!

Enjoying this IPA thanks to an awesome gift from FlakyBiscuit - thanks Alan!
Poured into tulip; clear bright orange-gold with a modest white head that deflates after a few moments into a nice layer of foam that leaves slick lacing.
Smells awesome; huge grapefruit, tangerine, orange, pineapple and mango, with pine and bitterness behind.
Taste is delicious. Tropical and citrus fruits blending with pine and subdued bready malt, finishing very bitter with hop resin everywhere.
Mouthfeel is just carbonated enough, thin, slick and a bit dry at the end.
Overall, I can see why this IPA gets a lot of love on here; it's awesome. It's got something for everyone...tropical fruits for the East-Coast fans, pine and hellish bitterness for the West-Coast fans. Awesome.
Thanks again to FlakyBiscuit for sending me this great beer!
