12 oz bottle poured into a Prohibition Pig snifter glass.
The beer pours a nice copper color, clear with a slight chill haze, a few bubbles rise to the top of the glass. A nice, thick, soapy white head rises out of the beer, 2 fingers high that has nice retention with a lot of soapy lace left behind. The aroma is pleasant, lots of tropical and citrusy hop fruits, a touch of wildflower, hop spice with lots of sweet, caramel malt. It's balanced, but with more malt than I'd prefer, although the hop profile comes across nicely. The flavors are right in line, grapefruit, passionfruit, tangerine, pineapple with wildflower, crisp spice and a very, sweet rich finish, laden with caramel malt. The body is nice, high carbonation than I'd expect, but fairly smooth and juicy, lightly dry, but mostly sweet and rich.
Verdict: Not a bad IPA, but relies too much on the malt bill and lacks a truly diverse hop profile. I appreciate the fruitiness and citrus flavor, but it lacks bitterness, tang and brightness.

Huge thanks to mtomlins for this one.
Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, pine resins, floral hops, sweet caramel and light bready malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, bitter pine resins, light caramel and some bready malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Great IPA but it's just a touch too malty for my liking.
