$2.19 for a 12oz bottle @ Siciliano's. 6.8% ABV and 70 IBU per the bottle. No information on the website.
Pours out to a clear deep copper, forming ann expanding meringue-peaked yellow head with superior retention and beautiful sticky sheets of lacing. Very beautiful beer. There is a thick layer of heavily compact yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Carbonation is moderate, ~2.5 carbs or so. The nose is nice...it has the perfumy overtly floral, almost rose-like hops that I get in Anchor Liberty Ale. This is sitting on top of some distant grainy pale malt. Cleanly fermented. No DMS, diacetyl to my nose. Mouthfeel is VERY clean, and very very soft. Pillow soft. Amazing mouthfeel. The taste is a recap of the nose...lots of perfumy floral hops, followed by the slightly grainy pale malt base, a lager-like cleanliness and mouthfeel, then some moderate, but beautifully balanced bittering hops, and these linger into the finish. In the middle, I get a touch of grapefruit, lemon pith and pineapple, and as it warms, a little grainy toast. Some reviewers are commenting on the spice in this beer, however the label doesn't say anything about spices, and the website doesn't contain any info on the beer. Despite this, I am not getting any spices in the nose or flavor.

Wow. This is just an exceptional IPA. Beautifully balanced and clean. I would definitely buy this again. Highly recommended, totally under-rated.
