Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: The beer pours a very clear and light colored orange with a nice white head that lasts slightly longer than average.
S: The smell is citrus and pine, citrus and pine, and some citrus and pine.
T: The taste is, well, citrus and pine. The flavor of this beer is just wonderful and it is not as bitter as I was expecting for having such an intensely hoppy aroma and flavor. The alcohol, for being 7.5%, is pretty much not noticeable.
MF: The mouthfeel is nice and light and very smooth. It feels crisp and clean on the palate.
O: This is a very solid IPA. I think it's almost impossible to have an incredible beer these days or one that really stands out, especially an IPA, because there are so many fantastic ones made. Yes, this IPA is delicious, but I don't see what sets it apart from other top notch India Pale Ales.

Poured from the bomber into a nonic pint.
Lovely fokkin' pour, that is. Copper color with with a nice lasting head that slowly dissipates and leaves some trailing lacing.
The aroma is not tops but will do: citrus and spice, a little grass and a bit of bread and cracker as well.
The taste is big an bold. Orange, candied fruit are first to hit my palate followed by a slow, building, spicy bitter note that finishes dry and lasts forever. That aftertaste, phew, I'm gobsmacked.
I love the mouthfeel on this brew, medium smooth but with a tingly, bubbly bit that you can feel on the lips and tongue. Outstanding.
Overall, really glad i got to try this beer and wish it was available to me on a regular basis. An outstanding IPA.
