Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear copper hue with a good two finger creamy white head that slumped down to a food one finger blanket with lots of sticky side lacing. Quite nice.

S - Some malty sweetness on the nose here followed by some nice light hops. Not nearly as green as I would like to see but the hops are atleast present.

T - Taste is a bit, flat. Not nearly as hoppy as I would expect or wish for an IPA to be. This seems for me to be the trend with beers that claim to be "green" or "sticky" in the title; they simply never deliver. Alot more malts than in the nose with some faint almost bubblegum hop notes. An incredibly light bitter finish rounds things out.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and almost sharp. Keeps things very crisp and refreshing. Nice.

O - Overall, this was a good IPA. Not sure how old it is, perhaps thats why the taste just didn't cut it for me. The appearance and mouthfeel is very nice, but the taste and aroma just doesnt cut it for me. Still, not too shabby.

Pours deep clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma is breathtaking and one of the best I have smelled on a pale. Deep pine hops, sweet grapefruit, floral, and even a bit of candy caramel smell. Flavor is very sweet and candy like. Not as much bitterness as i was hoping for. No bottle date, so maybe I got it late in the year? Still has the hop flavor though. Candy sweet grapefruit with only a hint of pine. Floral flavor. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel for a 6.6% here. Pretty flat. Good beer, but can't say I wasn't hoping for more bitterness and refreshment. The aroma is there, most of the flavors are there, but something seems slightly off. It is so close to being right. Just falls short of my benchmarks in the fresh/wet syle (Founders Harvest & GD Fresh Hop). Bonus points for the name of this one though.

Found some notes from 11/2012...

@ Tasty Beverage

Slightly hazed deep orange color under some creamy froth. Aromas of spruce, graham crackers, and stone fruit. Deeply fruity hop taste, bold tropical flavors, green stickiness, grapefruit, and peaches. Slightly prickly carbonation, not super bitter, medium bodied, and a bit dry. Hoppy goodness.

Serving type: on-tap
