Bottle from Tipples dated 12/18/14, poured 2/22/15. Two months old worried me a bit, but this pours a beautiful clear copper color with a big fluffy white to off white head. Nice floral aromatics, a bit of perfumey notes, citrus rind, pine. Hops still smell fresh as can be. Flavor follows with a big bitter punch up front, orange rinds, grapefruit juice, pine needles. Very dry body, medium plus carbonation. Pretty impressed this held up after a couple months. Solid session IPA.

Great hoppy IPA, but not overwhelming. Almost grapefruit tones, and a great finish.
