Bottle poured into my teku glass

A - Pours an aggressive 2.5 finger head, white with tiny bubbles, hazy copper in body. Head lingers and leaves nice lacing on the edges. Legs run quickly.

S - I mostly get citrus. Maybe grapefruit and other non-descript citrus fruits. In the back end, I am getting some sweeter malt, maybe crystal or caramel. Likely crystal. Weak nose.

T - Taste starts with a nice citrus blast. Mid-palate, it turns a bit piney. On the finish, I get resinous pine and a hint of sweet malt. It's very well balanced while the malt profile still lets the hops steal the show. Probably a heavy dose of citra or centennial in the later stages of the boil/dry hop.

M - Mostly dryish on the finish. Mildly bitter but not offensive.

O - The nose is weak and it's nothing special to look at but the flavor is outstanding. It's a very impressive, citrus-forward IPA that has drinkability and flavor. Well done Brew Kettle.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but should be pretty fresh. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity of big citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel/rind, pine, floral, grass, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity or bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. An extremely outstanding offering.
