Appearance: Cloudy golden amber, with impressive head of off-white suds and gorgeous lace.

Aroma: Bright floral hops! Very lovely aromatic, perfumed hops character already.

Taste: Sharp, bitter citrus hops with plenty of floral and tropical notes (mango, pineapple). Very well-balanced with the malts providing counterpoint to the bitterness. A superior IPA, even within a couple of weeks of it’s ‘best by” dating. I am impressed and will buy again. Just wish I could get these in Indiana!

From a single bottled about a month ago into a Great Divide Cervoise

A: Clear golden orange, big 3 finger puffy white head, good lacing
S: Huge (for an IPA) pungent hoppy mixture of tangerine-like citrus (both juice and rind), pine, flowery notes, with the bready caramel malty sweetness struggling to keep up.
T: Like the nose...really strong flavors but I go back and forth about whether the different hops t harmonize quite as beautifully as promised by the nose. This time I'm saying "not quite" but last time I had this I thought it was almost ideal. Regardless, great fun to taste and drink, with great combination of bright citrus, dank earthiness, sharp piney notes, and a very pleasant but not overpowering bitterness.
M: sticky, medium carbonation, zesty but creamy, pleasant bitterness and dryness.

Overall: These guys know their way around many different beer styles, and like their other styles, the IPA is a beaut. Delicious!

This is a very solid beer. I'd like to get a clone recipe and change the hop bill a bit
