4.43/5 rDev +1.1%
Bottle dated 10/8/13
A-pours an orange brass color with a heaping white head. Lacing was present all the way down.
S-tropical explosion of pineapple, mango and orange up front with a solid pop of fresh bread coming up the rear.
T-huge citrus pop followed by some solid resin and a great malt sweetness evens out the bitter finish of the hops.
M-great carbonation and medium mouthfeel that holds up thru the entire bottle as its consumed and reaches room temperature.
O-this batch is once of the best I have had, really great treatment of an explosive IPA. It's up there with the best of them. Reminds me of Grateful Hands Contentment. That is a compliment.

Pours a beautiful orangy color, pretty clear, but with a little haze and a very nice, creamy head. The smell is a citrus hops and while it's not overpowering, it's really nice. The taste is similar, hoppy on the citrus side, very little malt, not really bitter at all, it's very, very good and just what you want in an IPA. Mouthfeel is a touch watery, but still great. All said, this is an excellent IPA and one that I would drink often if it were easier to find and if it were priced reasonably. It's similar to Flower Power and since FP is easy to find and reasonably priced, I'll probably never buy this one again. MBC: You make great beer, but your prices are RIDICULOUS!
