22 ounce bottle with no date. Pours a hazy gold/orange color with a large white head. Lots of lacing.
Huge wonderful aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. I pick up hints of pine too.
Big beautiful citrusy hops. Grapefruit flavors more predominant. There is a light doughy malt flavor in the background to give it some balance.
Medium body with a really nice almost silky texture. The finish is not very dry like many other IPA's.
On its own, I would prefer a tad more sweetness to balance the bitterness but when I started eating some spicy panang curry it seemed perfect. This is a seriously good beer.
