This pours clear and orange and with a fat head of creamy off white foam that fell sticky and left lots of lace. It has a bright nose of orange and sweet honey malt. Bit of pink grapefruit on the nose just under the orange for a delightful ripe citrus nose. The malt is light and sweet with a graceful honey. It's not terribly cluttered with lots of scents. Ripe orange fills it up and a little pine in the background. Faint bit of spice . Taste is crisp clean and delicious. Ripe juicy and delicious orange. A nice hop bitter that is not too loud and a graceful caramel malt that is sticky but not weighed down. As it warms the malt sweetens to an icy sugary goodness. A bit of sticky pine resin to coat the throat with the bitter and leaves with a crisp ripe whole fruit feel , pith and all. The mouthfeel is supple and smooth and full of ripe and juicy fruit. Just tremendous! This one is so simple it defies you not to like it.

Cheerful, glad and very fruity.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium coppery-gold amber with a fine half finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of pineapple and other tropical fruit, citrus, piney and citrus hops, sweet malt; smells great. Flavor is caramel malt, great mixed citrus and tropical fruit, grapefruit, pine and citrus hops. Finishes with a more of the superbly integrated fruit flavors and a lingering citrus hop bitterness. Mdium bodied with light creaminess. This is an extremely well integrated IPA. It is not a hop bomb, but plenty of nice hop presence. The malt body is very tasty. Nicely integrated. I wish I hadn't waited so long to try this.
