Juicy hop bomb here. So smooth. Somehow better than OTWOA. I hope this becomes part of the permanent rotation. (110 characters)

Look is of nearly the same cloudy, yellowish hue that marks the Wings. Strong pine for the aroma, as expected. Feel is not as full bodied as I expected, but it is not weak either. Taste is pretty much piney, hoppy goodness that I think once marked the Wings, before it changed. Very happy I was able to get a six pack. (318 characters)

10 oz. Pour into a snifter at Pizza Paradiso Dupont.

Golden orange color body nearly crystal clear. Deep peach orange with a tan one finger even bubbled head presented. Very fine but plentiful looking lacing while drinking. A real gorgeous color.

Nose has large pine and tropic notes. Very big emphasis on pineapple juice going on this sucker. Large, controlled with minimal sweetness on hop front. Pineapple also comes out quite floral somewhat and green.

First sip brings lots of pine and quick prickly carbonation. Lots of hop oil and fruity character taking a back seat hinted on the nose. Some lemon like finish and a bit hop hot as the alcohol really seems to boost the aromatics. Palate feel is a bit crisp and has lost a bit of its juicy quality hinted on the nose.

Alcohol on this is a bit masked but it seems to get accentuated with the hop profile. Still its a great hop forward brew, and another great IPA for the brau gang. (940 characters)
