The aroma is smoothly fragrant, flowery, fruity, and sweet with lime, grapefruit, and pine as well as a tropical aroma. It has a slightly hazy, orange-ish, deep amber body with a cream-colored frothy, bubbly head. The flavor is bitter and resiny but not too sharp, with considerable softening maltiness. The hops also contribute a flavorful and complex fruitiness—orange, peach, and apricot come to mind. As the bitterness wears off after each swallow, the maltiness lingers. The mouthfeel is slightly dry but smooth. The carbonation is delicate—soft and frothy but not excessive, with just a little carbonic bite and then hop acidity on the way down.

What impresses me about this IPA is that it manages to be bold and yet delicate and well balanced. A variety of flavors shine through despite the usual intense resiny flavor and bitterness. The mouthfeel is also nicely put together, as it provides a good counterbalance to the intense flavors.
