12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
A: Hazy amber in color with a large eggshell white head. Great head retention. Rings of foamy lacing cling to the glass.
S: Floral and citric hop scents. Oranges, passion fruit, fir pine, sugary grapefruit, pith. Sweet and doughy malt base.
T: Mandarin orange and sugary grapefruit on the attack. Lemon peel and pith. Bitterness quickly reaches its apex, and is fairly tame overall. Sweet malt base adds tastes of biscuit, dough, and faint caramel. Dank and oily hop tastes surface toward the end. Finishes with tropical fruits and mild oily, plant-like tastes.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Creamy and a touch silky with moderate carbonation adding a crisp, refreshing dimension.
O: This is a very tasty, easy-drinking beer. Pretty well balanced, though hop heads won't complain either. Were it available in my market, I could see myself buying this one often.

From a bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance - Nice light bronze with a slight haze, good inch and a half of head formed when poured, nice lacing as it's disappearing from my glass.
Smell - hints of malts up front with a bit of pine and citrus as well
Taste - Light malts coming through upfront and then the bitterness of the hops comes through with the classic IPA flavor.
Mouthfeel - fairly light mouth feel as it's being sipped but still leaves a nice coating on the tongue and mouth.
Overall - a pretty good IPA, a bit more malty than most but still a solid choice if you find it.
