Growler shared by Seth. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Hoppy nose. Pine and floral hop notes. A little on the minerally side. Slightly unbalanced.. Original rating 4.0
Re-rate (another growler thanks to Seth). Enticing hop aromas. This version was much more balanced with fantastic citrus hop notes. Great mouthfeel and good body.

Poured from a fresh growler into a modified tulip glass.

A - Hazy yellow hay, capped with a froth of delicate white , laced all the while.
S - Tangerine, tropical fruit, some lemongrass touches the ends. A sunrise of the senses.
T - Finesse displayed here, tropical feel, fine light malt, a kiss of dryness. Constructed to impress.
M - Fabulous feel, the mid palate is the treasure here. a stunning entry, gentle glide to the end. Like
Fred and Ginger on a winding staircase. A delight to be had.
O - This may well be the best constructed IIPA that I have had. Easy on the palate, clean in its finish. So
very good.

Cheers all

This is my favorite beer I have ever had, I would take this over a Heady Topper or Double Sunshine or any other IIPA on the planet any day of the week. This beer is leaps a bounds more than the others for me, it is perfect to me in every way I can think.

If I could only choose to drink one beer for the rest of my life, this would be it. You need to try this beer. This is truly the best IIPA in the world in my eyes and I think if it came around more than 2-4 times a year or in bottles as well as growlers then this list would reflect that as well... Trade away whatever you have to or drive/fly any distance and sample this beer...
