Many thanks go to rajendra82 for this one! Awesome selection.
Appearance: Cloudy, burnt-orange hue with lots of fine yeasties. Ample off-white head that settles down to a nice ring of bubbles. Some decent initial lace.
Smell: Nice floral hoppiness, with some citrus and pine notes.
Taste: Mmmmm! Very balanced for an IPA, this is not a hop-bomb. The sweetness of the malt is allowed to play alongside the citric bitterness of the hops in a most satisfying way. Detected a hint of fruitiness from the yeast. The hops are most prominent in the finish, which is long and dry. Nicely done!
Mouthfeel: Smooth mouthfeel with maybe medium body - seems just about right.
Drinkability: A wonderfully drinkable IPA. I WILL be having more...well, 3 more, anyway...
Serving type: bottle
