22 oz. bottle acquired through the BPL Fantasy BIF with Zeledonia, who sent an awesome box. Poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass.

A- A normal pour created a 1-finger, off-white head. The body was a hazy, burnt orange. The head settles out to a thin film, leaving nice sticky spots on the glass. A second pour and the stick is even more significant.

S- Quite fresh and hoppy. I get a lot of citrus and hints of pine. Malt backbone brings a lot of balance wit sugary and bready aromas. Everything magnifies with a little warmth.

T- Bold and balanced, as in "there's a ton of everything." Hops are lemony and slightly piney. Malts are cracker-like. There's a hoppy finish that's a touch aspirin-like (not necessarily in a bad way, just a touch biting).

M- Full bodied. Slight hoppy bite. Moderate carbonation tries to keep up.

O- A very solid IPA. While really hoppy, it's pretty well balanced by a solid grain bill. I'd put it up there with my favorites, Two Hearted, Founders, Short's, ect. Obtained through a trade with Zeledonia, I'd buy it if it was available in my market.

Hazy dark honey with loose white froth.
Sticky pine resin and flower nose - sickly sweet.
Clover honey on toast with juicy resiny, nectar, hops.
Apricot and pineapple salsa finish and compote linger.
Medium, chewy, bit of oil.

Sweet and old school - no citrus or melon. Almost cloying, could be cleaner. Busy. Fruitens as it warms, but still mushy.
