look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a willibecher. This was bottled 8/27/14. Review #250 for me.

Appearance: Pours a medium amber and leaves a finger of fairly dense, slightly off white head. Fairly deep in color. (4.25)

Smell: Resin, pine, mango, caramel, hint of peach. Nice balance between the sweet malts and the hops. (4.25)

Taste: Resin, mango, peach, grapefruit, honey, light caramel malts on the back end. Matches the smell well, but the hops come through a lot stronger. Amazingly smooth taste, and the hops shine. (4.6)

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Finishes just a tad bitter, which is really nice for such a big ipa. (4.5)

Overall: From the smell, this seemed to be a fairly balanced IPA, but with the taste the hops definitely take over, with the malt sweetness in the backseat. Really smooth, well integrated flavor profile and this drinks like a smaller ABV IPA, but with so much flavor, which is impressive. (4.5)
