look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pours a deep orange color with a nice white head and has some decent lacing down the glass.

S: I get some nice floral hop aroma with a tid bit of grapefruit thrown in.

T: up front this beer is quite malty and then as you get into the middle you start to hit with the beautiful hop character of the beer and tastes like centennials. the end of the beer is nice and dry and leaves you wanting another sip.

M: The mouth feel is pretty good, nice medium body not too heavy not too light.

O: This is a great beer and one of my favorite IPAs. Its extremely quaff able and can be drank whether it is 100 degrees outside or 0 degrees outside.

Finally getting around to review this hyped up IPA. It pours a shiny new penny copper with a solid foamy head. Clarity is excellent, lacing and head retention are equally as pleasing to the eye.

Sweet and tangy passion fruit and pineapple notes fumed from the beer as I popped the top. After the pour it seemed more balanced but never too heavy on the malt. A floral bouquet and the previously mentioned pineapple flavors comprise of the hop bill.

The taste is exceptionally smooth beginning to end. Nothing assaults the taste buds, but everything is in harmony. The flavors almost seem to jump out more in the finish; grassy floral tones, mango, and a dash of pithy grapefruit emerge after the beer has evacuated. The malt backbone has a substantial toasty presence with a surprising amount of yeast detectable, but it sits so politely in the background as not to disrupt the hop display.

Carbonation adds only a smidgen of crispness to the extremely slick feel. It's very smooth but maybe lacking just a bit of body IMO. Despite a minor dent in the mouthfeel dept, I must remember that this beer has been in my glass for 5 minutes and I only have one drink left. Needless to say it's a solid example, and it doesn't need another review to solidify it's reputation.

Thanks to tedwarhc. Bottled on 04/20/2011. Reviewed on 06/01/2011. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a golden orange color with a fluffy, 1 and a half finger off-white head. Head doesn't reduce by much. Literally stays at about a finger for the duration. Nice, foamy lacing clings to the glass.

Nicely balanced nose. Some grapefruit and citrusy hops are here but neither is too strong. Maybe some slight piny hops but they are faint too. A caramel sweetness rounds it out nicely.

Taste follows extremely closely with the nose but is a bit stronger. Plenty of hops but not overdone. Great citrus and slight grapefruit notes mix nicely with some caramel malt sweetness. There is a lemon-like bite, but only at times, towards the moderately bitter finish.

Very crisp with a lighter body and higher carbonation. Leads to a lighter mouthfeel. Moderately bitter with an extremely dry finish.

Overall, a nice IPA. It's a nicely balanced with crisp, clean flavors. I'd love to get a fresher bottle to try.
