4.38/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - pours a cloudy yellow orange color, with more light yellow colors on the top and getting darker as it goes. maybe a fingers worth of white foam. tiny dots of lacing rest against the glass.

S - at first it smells like I walked into a florist. Exceedingly floral. Underneath the bouquet of flowers (pun intended) rests a basket of fruit. Citrus and tropical fruit to be exact. Notes of sweet and bitter orange peel, mango, tangerine and sugar coated grapefruit pulp. Hints of earthy pine come out as it warms.

T - Lightly sweet malt profile, almost like honeycomb cereal. hop flavor enters quickly with "green" herbal notes as well as bright citric bitterness. Mostly bitter orange peel and grapefruit rind in the center while hints of mango and pine needles add depth of character. Candied grapefruit pulp flavors on the backend. Floral, pine and bitter citrus notes seem to linger for days...

M - medium bodied with a slightly watery texture with medium carbonation.

O - Excellent double IPA. I have not encountered an ale with such a floral character. I do prefer pine notes but this is quite enjoyable still.
