Pours dark amber with a large head.
Nose shows lots of tropical fruit and floral notes, very expressive. Also some soft alcohol and bready malt.
Similar flavours, a mix of bready and cookie dough-like malt accompanied by piney hops. Unfortunately the finish include industrial/petrol notes.
Carbonation is suitably high.

Copper colored, off white head, nose showed a bit of malt through the pine. Good lace down the glass. Bitterness hangs on but it is bettter balanced and maybe a bit maltier than many west coast IPAs. Drinks much easier than the ABV would indicate. Very good beer.

had this gem on-tap at the Beer Trappe in Lexington, KY.

Poured into a nonic pint glass. The color is a copper-orange color with a nice white head. lots of lacing all the way down the glass.

The nose is hoppy with strong citrus notes. dominated by orange and grapefruit.

The taste is all hops with some citrus rind and with heavy pine component. bitter aftertaste lingers for a while.

Nice medium feel with a good amount of carbonation.

A real standard for IPA. everything this style embodies with citrus fruit and bitter bite. cold drink all day.
