12oz bottle from the 7.9.14 batch, enjoyed out of a teku
A: this looks absolutely radiant in the glass: bright golden orange with faint hues of copper. not much head or lacing, but very bubbly
S: great blend of aromas. there are notes of candied oranges and marmalade, and notes of sweet, peppery onions or chives. all of that is tied to a thick, concentrated smell of piney, resiny hops.
T: grapefruit pith, some of those candied oranges from the nose, and juicy, resiny hops. the finish is dry and bitter.
M: star of the show. it's light and refreshing, but creamy, smooth, and full-bodied. pretty much the epitome of a beer that's flavorful, refreshing, and endlessly drinkable.
O: this beer is proof that all is not lost in Ohio

12 oz bottle. Date of 07/14/14, just under a week old!
A: Clear copper body, with a strong pour it produces a finger of head. Decent retention.
S: Yup. West coast hop bomb. Tons of citrus from the "C" hops.
T: Delicious hop flavor, more of that citrus. A fair amount of bitterness as well. Very similar hop bitterness to a lot of Stone IPAs. Light malt backbone that keeps this one pretty dry and bitter towards the end. This one leans towards its west coast influences, which I'm a huge fan of.
M: Good for the style, moderate carbonation. Soft.
O: Delicious IPA. Definitely worth the hype, at least when it's this fresh. I would drink the hell out of this if I lived in Ohio, but let's hope that never happens.

I poured it into a glass, it has a gold color body with a small head to it. The aroma has a piney smell to it. The taste is in your face hop explosion. Pine notes and slight bitterness follows. The mouthfeel is good, well balanced and leaves a hop aftertaste on your tongue.

Bottle date 7/9/2014. I had to double check, as I never thought I would get to try this beer at a week old.
This beer is just silly. I cannot believe how amazing this beer is, especially when it is this fresh. Completely blew me away. As soon as I popped the cap, this aroma of amazing hop-fuitness floral-citrusness hit my nasal cavity and I started salivating immediately as I poured it into a glass. The mouthfeel of this is so intense. Remember swish and spit in gradeschool? Imagine taking whole cone hops, soaking them in grapefruit and pineapple juice, and swishing them around your mouth. That is what it is like, except this time you get to swallow it :)
Damn near perfect.
