Poured from a 12oz bottle I got as an extra from shuaj. Thanks for everything Josh!
A- Pours a nice deep golden amber color. I was surprised at the clarity of this beer to be honest. Nice 2 finger offwhite head that leaves tons of sticky lacing all over the glass. This is a good looking IPA!
S- Sweet citrus (pineapple and mango) collide with some bittering hops (pine) in the forefront of the aroma. Some sweet underlying malts bring this up as well a notch. I can see why people really like this beer.
T- Oh yea this is a good IPA. Citrus hops (pineapple) come into play right off the bat. Sweet malts come through in the middle of the beer and ending with a sweet yet bitter kick to it. Pleasant crisp hop bite in the tail end of this beer. I like this very much.
M- Medium mouthfeel to this beer. Great carbonation levels make this beer a very easy drinker. Beer floats across the palate with great ease leaving hop resin everywhere. Wow this beer also has a nice crisp hop aftertaste. Very great mouthfeel!
D- This is the kind of IPA that will get me in trouble. It is very drinkable and you will quickly put them back without even knowning you did. I would recommend this beer to anyone who has not tried it and like citrusy IPA's.

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
