A: Pours a hazy copper color, with a massive frothy 3 inch white head. Hangs around for a while with sticky lacing clinging the whole way.
S: Nose hits instantly with a citrus explosion. Lots of orange, grapefruit, as well as some tropical notes. Maybe mango? Quite possibly the best smelling IPA I've had.
T: A pungent, bitter hop bite right off the bat. The citrus from the nose is there, but much more subtle. Nice dry finish.
M: Light-medium body with a really creamy texture.
O: An excellent drinking experience. Any IPA lover should go out of their way to try this.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Bottled on 28-Jan-2014.
Hazy golden orange. Or as my wife puts it, "dehydrated pee." Nice silky-looking head with minuscule bubbles. Definitely unfiltered (as if they were lying). Head lasts as a film on the top of the beer until the last drop.
Spicy hops. Malty sweetness. Pineapple? Citrus! No alcohol. Low esters. Non-phenolic, although some spicy phenols may be melding with the spiciness of the hops.
This beer is just the right mix of hop bitterness, dank hoppy flavor and malt. Nothing seems out of balance. Nothing even peeks its head out more at one point before or after another flavor. Smooth as glass, tasty as a mofo. My glass doesn't spend much time on the coaster.
Medium bodied, how I like my ladies. Silky, how I like their undergarments.
What needs to be said? For some beers that have garnered a strong following there's no question as to why. The balance here is incredible. The flavors are just perfect and the contributions the hops, malts and yeast make come together for a wonderful experience. If you haven't had this beer, seek it out.
