12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a puffy layer. It is an orange yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, herbal, piney, grassy, some alcohol, candy caramel sweetness, and bready malts.

Taste: You pick up some bitterness in the rear along with everything else. The heat of the alcohol could chill down a little bit, but still bearable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, some alcohol, tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: It's been sometime, but still as tasty as I remember. Will be drinking more of these in the future too.

Pours a yellowish-amber, cloudy color. Head is frothy and crunchy. Head retains well and lacing sticks nicely to the side of the pint glass !!. Aroma is of insane amounts of citrus, piney hops, so, so much orange and pine !!!!!!!. Taste is not as intense as the aroma would lead you to believe, but the taste is awesome, with lots of flavors coming through, grapefruit, grapefruit rind, tropical hints, fresh orange and hop resin, there is a lot going on here. Beer is cool and citrusy on the palate and the alcohol is well hidden. Feels great going down and verydrinkable. Hop heads will love this beer with its great mix of various hops!!

Pours a cloudy orange with a bit of soapy lacing.

Smell is very fruity. Mandarin and tropical fruits.

Taste is similar. Expecting maybe a tad more sweetness. Bitterness does well here, though. Grapefruit and apricot in there.

Surprisingly crisp and quick mouthfeel.

A solid IIPA. Would drink again.
