4.45/5 rDev +5%
poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic, served at fridge temp.
appearance: hazy, semi transparent lemon yellow with active carbonation and a 3 finger linen white head. more than abundant, gorgeous lacing
aroma: awesome blend of fruitiness; papaya, peaches in syrup
mouthfeel: a little on the thin side.
taste: great blend of fruit juices; pineapple, papaya and a splash of grapefruit.
notes: one of the best IPA noses I have smelled since Flower Power or Celebration. Very nice flavor profile. definitely seems like a strong English IPA to me. Alcohol seems well hidden. this is a pleasure to drink.

4.3/5 rDev +1.4%
Serving Type: Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 7/13/12.
Appearance: Hazy, light amber color with a nice white head that slowly dissipates into a thin film with moderate lacing. Nice but not overly impressive.
Smell: Huge punch of aroma. Grapefruit and orange dominate with a nice pale malt aroma in the background. Very impressive.
Taste: Extremely well balanced IPA. Citrus dominates from the hops and is backed up by a delicious pale malt backbone. Very bitter with a smooth finish. Absolutely excellent.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Semi-dry. Medium to high carbonation. All around great for this style and beer.
Overall: Excellent, excellent beer. An absolutely go-to for IPA's.
