Poured into bowtie glass at the Three Floyds Brewpub in Munster, IN.
Appearance: Pour was deep orangish with a slight reddish hue with a beautiful hazy quality. Head was good and quickly dissipated with some lacing on the glass.
Aroma: A godsend. The smell of apricots and mango's. Some piney hop notes. I couldn't get over how wonderful the hops were. Some malty and a trace amount of alcohol.
Taste: This is probably the best IIPA I have eve had. Flavor's of hops and malty. Balance is perfect so that it is not overpowering as many IIPA's can be. Alcohol character is well disguised and I was surprised to later learn that this beer was 9.5% ABV. Bitterness is not lingering. Retro-nasal hops aroma makes burping fun.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is good. A slight drying from the hops but negligible alcohol burn in the finish.
Drinkability: This might be the best thing about the beer. The balance of hops and malt and sweetness and bitterness just flowed. I could have sat and drank this beer all day (I wanted too). I can't say enough about it. Its the best for a reason. It hides lots of aroma, taste and alcohol in the most enjoyable package ever.
I love it.

This defines the style, or what the style could be. Light bubbles. Upfront pineapple and mango pine florals balanced with caramelized citrus and butterscotch. Larger body than expected. Creamy and chewy. First rate. Almost a perfect 5, but maybe I haven't had a fiver yet?

Poured from a bomber into my Deschutes tulip, no bottle date...
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color, with a finger of tan head.
S - The smell is malty/honey, with with some notes of tropical fruit.
T/M - The taste is a pleasant combination of a solid malt backbone, and some mango & pineapple.The bitterness hangs around on my tongue for a while. Mouthfeel is medium, good carbonation.
O - Such a solid IPA! Hits all the right notes with me, and I would always have this is my fridge if I could get it here in Vegas. But I can't, so I'm gonna go and enjoy the hell outta this one. Cheers!
