Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall Summit glass. Bottled on 08/08/13.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About tree fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A ripe and juicy hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus, earthy, and piney hops. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, and melon. Earthy, floral, and herbal hops with hints of grass and dank pine resin. Nicely sharp and bitter smelling. Background presence of bready malt with hints of sweet caramel, grains, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A very good West Coast aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a ripe and nicely bitter and juicy hop driven taste with citrus, earthy, and herbal notes. Upfront taste of juicy citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, and melon. Good mix of earthy, floral, grassy, and herbal hop notes. Spicy taste of pine resin. Background presence of malt with a taste of caramel, biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. Very hop forward. A very good West Coast IPA taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and fairly oily. Bitter but nicely smooth.
Overall: Another great West Coast IPA. Good citrus flavors with a good combination of earthy hop notes.
