A:Looks like my perfect ipa. Nice cloudy amber with a good white head only downside is lacing.
S: The smell although not that strong is pretty amazing. Lots of citrus and hops coming through with a stronger pine and resin after. Downsides are slight alcohol smell and weaker smell overall
T: follows the nose very well. Citrus up front, good hop taste in the middle, with the resin bite at the end. Downside being the slightly to bitter/alcohol at end
F: Very good carbonation almost creamy, very refreshing only downside is slightly dry feeling.

O: one of my top 10 ipas currently

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a beautiful hazy amber with a 2 finger, buttermilk color, foamy/frothy head. Head sticks around for about 2-3 minutes. Swirls a full but spotty ring lacing.

S. I get a citrusy smell at first that brings thoughts of mangoes or peaches and cream followed but some resiny and piney aftertones.

T. Flavor backs up the nose with a citrusy fruit hop highlight balanced by some malt sweetness that brings thoughts of mango or island fruits. The bitterness is perfect. Finishes with a bit of a piney and grassy aftertaste. Loving this beer.

M. Medium bodied but kinda creamy feeling. Has a nice coat of the mouth. Perfect carbonation for the style. Finishes just slightly dry making you want more (but it's not a bad thing with this beer).

O. A very nice beer. Got this in a trade with some heady and I prefer this. Not saying this is better than most people's perception of heady cuz some think it's the best beer in the world. I'm not there. Enough about HT. I love this beer. Looks beautiful. Smells delicious. Taste is very well balanced and layered at the same time. Medium bodied which to me is normal for a DIPA but it has this slightly creamy mouth coating that I just love. Will be looking to trade for this again!

Received a can as a gift from a friend. Excellent DIPA. Poured into large tulip. Almost clear reddish yellow with one finger of pure white head that leaves a small trace. Aroma is spicy, floral, slightly resinous. Taste has some citrus combined with flowers, resin and lots of freshly picked sin semilla. Feel is just about perfect...slightly dry and appropriately carbonated. Overall, another awesome DIPA from Fiddlehead.

Best beer ever. Most balanced ipa created. Heady was the best until this beer. Unbelievable nose taste will stay with you for hours. Love it
