Pours dark golden bordering on amber with an off white head that has great retention and laces the glass beautifully. Smells majorly of HOPS! Sweet honey, piney and citrusy fruitiness compliment the hop bitterness. Pineapple and grapefruit come to mind.
T- This beer is damn good! i didn't think it would live up to the hype but it did! very hoppy up front, but it is nicely balanced at the finish with a sweet malty/honey flavor. citrus and piney hops, along with pineapple and grapefruit dominate the flavors throughout, but their is also a hint of orange and tangerine sweetness in the aftertaste. The alcohol is definitely perceivable. the aftertaste is sweet sweet goodness, and definitely keeps you sipping!
this is a full bodied ipa, and it is perfectly carbonated and smooth going down. i could drink this stuff all night, but i would rather drink it all day in the beautiful sun next to a beautiful garden... that is what this beer reminds me of.
