Bottle from Beertopia in Omaha, NE
No bottled on date
Poured into a standard US pint glass

Medium-sized bubbles form a sponge-like head that's off-white in color. Subsides in about a minute, leaving some small washes of lace along the sides of the glass. Body is transparent, golden-orange in color, with yellow highlights. Carbonation is quite active and readily visible.

Aroma of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, a bit of lemon, and lesser pine scents. Fairly enticing, but nothing too amazing.

Taste opens with a strong combination of pine resin and citrus flavored hops (particularly orange and lemon). This continues, with increasing bitterness, through the end, where a bit of pale malt sweetness opens up alongside the bitter citrus. Lingering aftertaste of bitterness from hops.

Comfortable mouthfeel via medium-intensity carbonation with a medium-heavy body, this slides right along the palate with an enjoyable viscosity. Finish is dry and a bit sticky from the ethanol or malt.

Poured from a bottle (fresh batch) into a pint glass.

A: Straw copper with ample bubbling. One finger white head with poor retention resolves into a thin lacing.

S: Mild. Citrus, grapefruit, and some hop oils.

T: Awesome. Citrus and hop oils up front give way to a perfectly balanced bready malt. Ends with a nice bitterness but not too much in the way of alcohol sensation.

M: Very drinkable due to a high level of carbonation and great taste. Goes down smooth with a bit of foam. Would be extremely drinkable if it were just a tad less carbonated.

O: A solid IIPA, but perhaps a tad weak in contrast to the best of the category. Very comparable to Firestone and Stone IPAs.
