4.73/5 rDev +10.5%
A - Pours a semi-opaque light orange with a creamy two-finger head. Very nice; a fine looking beer that makes me want to drink it.
S - Citrus and hops with a bit of pine/dank, mmm. Smells like many IPA's.
T - A nice mix of grapefruit and hopiness. Tastes like their could be citra hops in it (apparently not). Nicely balanced; none of the flavors are overpowering. All of the flavors linger after a sip as well.
M - Light body and smooth.
O - This is a fantastic, well-crafted citrusy APA. With IPA's and DIPA's being "all the rage" right now, this should not be overlooked.

Drank from a 1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Drink within 90 days of stamped born on date. 052113
Served in a pint glass
Slightly hazed, straw yellow appearance. The liquid as capped by a billowing, three-finger crown of ecru foam. With such a substantial head, I was surprised at the tiny amount of lacing.
The aroma was simply astounding. Super hoppy with a plethora of exotic tropical fruit notes. Mango and pineapple came through strongest. Lots of passion fruit. Hints of peaches and nectarines were also noticeable. The fruity hops lent a pleasant sweetness.
The flavor profile was quite simplistic and radically different from the aroma. Like the nose, it was also quite hoppy, but that is where the similarities ended. The hops came across as much more dry and bitter. Pithy grapefruit rind dominated. Lots of pininess. The finish was super bitter with lingering notes of pine resin. I usually frown on overloading hoppy beers with malts, but this definitely could have used a bit more balance.
The mouthfeel was thinner bodied with a very fine and mellow carbonation. The liquid almost felt a bit flat.
After smelling MO, I was really excited for what was about to follow. Unfortunately, both the flavor profile and the mouthfeel were quite disappointing.
