This beer pours a perfect "IPA" orange with plenty of soft, foamy head. Head fades after a couple minutes, but there's always a good film of suds and plenty of sticky lacing. Good clarity, good looking IPA.

Smells softly of peaches, citrus and tropical fruit. Just a hint of pine. An enticing aroma, but one that doesn't smack you in the face.

Taste: reference the above notes on aroma. Big, juicy notes of peaches and tropical fruit, and just the slightest tinge of cool pine. All done in an expertly subtle and restrained fashion. In other words, big on modern hop flavor, small on bitterness. Lemon and lime come through in the middle and take you to the finish line.

Mouthfeel is seductive -- soft from the start and finishes like silk. The finish could linger a little longer, but I'm just nit-picking at this point.

Bottom line -- this is a great IPA that excels in the two main areas of taste and smell, but has also really nailed the finer points of mouthfeel and overall drinking experience.
