4/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from their 12oz bottle...

Appearance - Poured 2 fingers of thick golden foam, slightly opaque orange amber body, really a gorgeous beer - left nice huge webbed lacing.

Smell - Mango, Huge floral hops, sweet grapefruit and pineapple, smells nice.

Taste - Great semi-sweet citrus & tropical fruits, huge floral hops, clover, natural honey - wow! Grapefruit pith and some bitter/dryness asserts long into the finish, nice.

Mouthfeel - Almost medium, so smooth - carb is on the lower side, foaming and silky, finishes just dry with a touch of pucker.

Overall - What a wonderful treat! Very well balanced, with perfect harmony of natural citrus and honey sewwtness, and ohh the floral hops - a floral hop lovers dream! Highly recommend...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

My bottle is dated 6-04-14 clearly on the back of the bottle.

A - Pours out a slightly hazy golden with a half finger white head that died off relatively fast. Look really carbonated with bubbles streaming up really fast. Leaves great lacing.

S - Smell comes off nutty, piney, grassy, herbal, not sweet and smells dry. No sign of alcohol and not super fragrant.

T - Follows the nose with a nutty, piney, lemony taste, a nice bitter bite, a slight sweetness and a slight bitter bite on the finish. No sign of alcohol and the taste seems to go pretty fast.

M - Highly carbonated, soft full mouth feel, with a high drink-ability.

O - Over all this is a pleasant IPA, which i find more enjoyable the more I drink. Not really super impressive but it still has some great qualities. If you like to try enjoyable IPA's that are not to over the top give this one a try, Cheers!
