look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle to glass

Appearance - Poured a hazy orange colour with a great white head. Absolutely brilliant

Smell - Huge amounts of citrus, grapefruit, grassy, and some piney notes

Taste - Much like the smell, lots of citrus, grapefruit, mango, piney. Hops and malts are really well balanced

Overall - This is an amazing example of the style. I happened to be in a beer store and see this and thought I would give it a try and boy and am I happy I did. It really deserves the hype it receives and the praises it gets

4.2/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A -16 oz bottle dated 4-29-14 (11 days old !) to Tulip a somewhat hazy bright golden orange with a huge 3 finger head that took its time to settle down and left some huge lacing

S - lots of citrus - orange & lemon, some pine and grassy notes

T - follows the nose closely. Grapefruit Good amount of malty sweetness and balanced well with some hoppy bitterness

M - well carbonated. Medium body. Somewhat creamy Mouthfeel but dry finish.

O - Great IPA. Not as good as I was hoping though. Definitely worth trying but not sure I'll be buying much. I'll take a sixer of anti hero for $2-3 more.
