Bottled 3/07/13

The beer comes out looking golden orange with a fluffy white head that leaves some sticky lacing.

The aroma comes with sweet fruity hop with orange, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine. Some more piney hops.

Great smooth medium bodied beer. Dry with a lingering bitterness. Big fruity hop flavor of orange and pineapple and the resinous pine.

Oh man this is a great IPA. Just bought a single to sample it. It’s time for a sixer.

on draft at mekong in Richmond, snifter.

dark copper color with a very nice head. smell is amazingly hoppy with piney hop goodness. taste is super fresh hops..piney..nice bitter finish. maybe the perfect normal IPA. almost full bodied but easy drinking.

overall just a world class IPA. never pass this up if its fresh!

On-tap at Beer Authority in NYC.

Beer is orange/golden in colour. Moderately-sized off-white head. Good lacing, decent retention.

Smell is sticky (excuse the synaesthesia), with bright citrus scents. Grapefruit, orange. Pine resin.

Very tasty. Large citrus flavour, grapefruit and a touch of mango. Quite bitter. A bit of sweetness in the finish, a touch of caramel. Very bright hop flavours that really pack a punch. Resiny.

Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation. Quite oily.

Overall, very, very good. A terrific IPA.
