Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a nice clear golden yellow with 1 inch white head with excellent retention.
S: Wonderful citrus, floral hop aroma. Pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit, and sharp orange notes create a beautiful bouquet.
T: Nice grapefruit, pineapple, and orange hop notes. Still solid, but doesn't quite live up to the promise of the aroma.
M: Light body. Very smooth and softly sweet. The typical hop bitterness of the style is nicely subdued...which makes this eminently more drinkable in my opinion.
D: A wonderful IPA, especially for those who don't want an abrasive feel to their hops. Nicely complex and extremely drinkable. Seek it out!
Serving type: on-tap

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.
