Poured from a 750ml bomber into a pint glass, bottle courtesy of Long813. Shared with my best friend/blossoming BA, visiting town for the weekend.

Pored a clear, pale golden orange with a thick soapy and sticky offwhite head. Good retention, minimal lacing (bottle is a couple months old from my interpretation of the Julian dating). Aroma is very citrus and pine oriented, with some of the sweet malt detectable here. Lots of tropical fruits are here, I got some pineapple, mango and peach, but the list goes on. Taste is awesome, starts initially with the sweet and solid malt base upfront, gradually fading into a hop attack, where the flavour opens up and matches the aroma in terms of the tropical bouquet. Just so goddamn tasty. Mouthfeel is great; full, medium to low carbonation and a LONG lasting bitter and dry finish. By long, I mean that from the point I left my girlfriend's house (where we imbibed) to the point I got home, over an hour later this bitter, dry cottonmouth effect lingered. Don't mind this at all, and in fact was the first time I've ever experienced this effect. ABV is undetectable and goes down super smooth. Great stuff here.

Great beer. Great taste. Goes down as one of the tops... for now.
This wasn't on my "to-drink" list, but I made an exception. I'm glad I did.

A- Looks great, but I'll admit, I drank it right out of the bottle.
S-scent was of a perfect for a solid drinkable beer. Not over powering to the point that you felt like you had to brace yourself for a kick in the mouth, but not weak.
T- taste, my favorite part. It was good, very good. Easy and smooth. A great hop taste and even flavor.

O- this is a good solid beer. You should definitely check it out.

Purchased this while doing my weekend a month at the base I was on. They had a decent selection of beer, and I wound up going with this. I was very pleased with my selection. It poured a nice amber color with a very thick foamy rich white head. What got me though was the smell. This smell is what every IPA should strive for. Floral, fruity sweet and good. I could sit there smelling it all night. The smell didn't translate completely into the taste, but it was still very good. I'd say the lower level of the top tier of IPAs. Felt very smooth in my mouth, very refreshing. I think this IPA is very underrated. I am glad I found it and would not hesitate to drink it again.
