Alright, this one lives up to the hype. Finally snagged a bottle of one of these beers. Hard to believe it took this long, considering I live in the same city its brewed. On to the review:
Smell instantly stunned me. I would give it an 8 if I could. A huge bouquet of citrus sweetness. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, maybe even a little melon and honey. Taste was equally amazing. All the same citrus flavors(and the melon), with a touch of hoppy bitterness on the end. No pine to speak of though, which is a good thing for my preferences.
A little more of a slick mouthfeel than I was expecting, but still very acceptable. Perfect drinkability and delicious, what more could you want in an IPA? If I found this at a bar, I don't think I would leave until the keg was tapped.
