Served this 12 oz. bottle in a Sam Adams glass. Best by: 6-28-12. The body was hazy, unfiltered orange copper with a creamy white head. Solid lacing remained in the glass.

The smell was citrus sweetness with pithy bitterness. Minty. Mangoes and tropical fruits.

The taste reflected the aroma well. Juicy citrus bittersweetness. Actually well balanced for an IPA. Well constructed and solid, very flavorful. I could drink this one frequently if were available in my area. I wish I had purchased more!

The mourthfeel was medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
