Poured into a Hill Farmstead tulip glass. Gorgeous orange-hue with an opaque, unfiltered texture. Pretty fluffy white head stacked 2-fingers high and then dissipates to a thin film around the edges.

Aroma is almost perfect with notes of juicy tropical fruit, oodles of citrus, and a hint of pine. Floral notes in there as well.

Taste is of hops up-front, hops in the middle, and hops on the back-end with no hint of bitterness or tannins. Juicy hop flavors are subtle and impeccably-balanced with notes of the aforementioned tropical fruit, citrus and some lemongrass in there. Great flavor that is much more ponderous than other bigger IPAs.

Mouthfeel is great. Well-balanced, smooth, not watery but not chewy. This is babybear: just right.

Overall I'd say this should be considered THE standard all IPAs should attempt to meet. Not trying to overpower you, not trying to ruin you palate, just inviting you to contemplate the subtle nuances and hidden enjoyments that hops can provide.
