12 oz bottle purchased from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Pours a honey golden yellow. Small but nice looking head. Strong lacing.

Smells like pine and zesty citrus, very strong.

The taste is the same, lots of grapefruit and peach. Very dry with little malt sweetness. Lingering bitterness is very welcome, I don't want it to go away.

Medium body, fully and well carbonated.

One of the best, for sure.

Pours two fingers worth of a soapy white head.
Clear straw colored body with lots of lacing and some head retention

Awesome floral, fruity and some what dank hoppy smell.
This is one of the best year round IPAs I've had in a while.

Taste is fairly grassy, citrusy and resinous. The grassy aftertaste detracts from this one slightly.

Medium thin bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly dry finish keeps this one quite drinkable and somewhat refresing.

Great beer with the aroma being the best part. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. High drink-ability with a fairly good price tag at $15 a 6 packs makes this even better.
