One of the first ever bottles off the production line (a test run I believe).
A - Medium amber gold color, beautiful clarity, with light effervescence that produces sparse lacing.
S - Mixture bright citrus and dank tropical fruit with some floral pollen and spice character as well. There is also a subtle array of alcohol and very light malt/grain harmonies.
T - A stunningly flavorful rush - top IPA quality without question. Fresh and bright bitter hops with citrus, pine and yellow fruit. There is a perfect addition of a dank tropical tasting hops (probably Citra). While this is an American IPA, and mostly about the hops, the malt base is a stand-up contributor, but I appreciate the absence of overt crystal malt flavors. It has a subtler backbone, Munich or Vienna, that lingers for a while in the tail. Bitter it is, but it's an artful bitterness riding atop a subtle swell of a crafted malt backbone. Then the bitterness lingers further.
M - Medium bodied and slightly slick on the tongue fading to that characteristic IPA astringency.
O - This is the art of the IPA well executed. Excellent.

The beer is burnt orange and clear with an inch of dense, off-white head. The aroma brings pine, hops, some grapefruit, citrus rind. The usual suspects. Hop bitterness throughout. Lingering spice and pine notes. Hop forward but balanced with spicy grains. Solid.
