Poured in to a tulip. 2 finger, off-white head with a clear copper colored body. Great lacing.

Aroma was very nice. Definitely a double IPA. Loads of citrus and malty sweetness. Some mango and grapefruit. Some caramel malts and a light breadiness.

Taste was great as well. Mild bitterness upfront that seems to increase on the tongue. Lingers slightly with a grapefruity-ness. Good maltiness mellows out the hops. Some definite caramel and bready flavors. Hop flavor is tropical flavors with some strong citrus, grapefruit and resinous hops. Coats the tongue in the finish, without being overly bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall this was a nice brew. No signs of ABV, good bitterness without being excessive. Sweetness helps mellow it all out.

I had this on cask at Pizza Port in Carlsbad yesterday and took notes. The smell is herbal, slightly spicy hops. The color is bright, clear copper in the glass with just a small bubbly head. The mouthfeel is so smooth and soft! The taste is woody and hoppy with a semi-sweet grainy malt in back. If there is such a thing as a non-sweet honey taste, I'd attribute that to this beer. It has a lovely apricot finish, too. I wish I could go back today for another round.
