Bottle dated 4/29/14 poured on 5/31/14. Pours hazy golden colored with a one finger fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel maltiness, grapefruits, some orange peel. Flavor is a bit brighter. Sweet grapefruit and orange rind, some grassy vegetal hops that I like. Much fresher flavor than aroma. Very light bodied and drinkable with medium carbonation. Very nice. While this is a solid brew I’m not quite on the hype train for this one. With that said, would be happy to have again.

Poured out with a slight haze into a snifter forming a solid 2 inch head which sunk back in after a minute. Smells of pine, grapefruit, and prominent pineapple. Taste is a solid mix of pineapple and grapefruit with the latter in the finish with a bit of bitterness. This brew tingles the taste buds hitting the front of the tongue and palate most. Overall a very solid IPA which I would highly recommend.
