A- Hazy orange body with a foamy white head. Some light shines through, but there is a definite sediment haze present.

S- Lots of strong citrus, hints of tropical fruits, tangerine, orange zest.

T- Tons of citrus in the flavor as well. Lots of fruity bitterness, lots of zesty citrus peel. Even some hints of peach and sugar orange marmalade.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight stickiness to it.

O- A really nice IPA, lots of delicate flavors, pungent fruity flavors.

Served in a crystal snifter. Deep amber color with a hint of red. Thick dimpled foam rises up an inch and a half and lingers long, setling very slowly and leaving chunks of meringue up the sides of the glass. Bright and inviting aroma of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, and orange rind.

Taste is juicy hops right upfront, full of tangerine and grapefruit, some piney notes, tingly on the tip of the tongue. Good balance of honey malt riding along, but this is hop central. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly slick, a bit watery. Great beer, been looking forward to this one.
