12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy, piney hops, bready malt, some ripe fruit and caramel. Body is medium and almost smooth. Herbal hops, bready malt, caramel and ripe pears fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Delicious brew.

Bottle date of 02/04/14. So not the freshest but an IPA should not totally fall off in 10 weeks.

Pours a clear, pale amber color with one finger of head that settled to a thin film. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Not a very strong aroma. I do pick up some tropical fruit, pine, and herbal hints. An interesting combination of hops. Dry malt with a slightest hint of caramel.

Much more assertive flavor but at a cost of being a bit astringent but not off-putting. Moderate bitterness with hop flavors of tropical fruit and herbs. The yeast added little in influence. Dry character overall.

Superbly carbonated as I expect from this brewer with a medium body. Outstanding texture for an IPA.

A very enjoyable IPA and a few things that I found to be slightly below outstanding. Far from the cutting edge of IPAs in today's market as it probably was 5-10 years ago.
