Huge thanks to ehammond1!

A: LIght golden hazy color. Creamy white head. Tons of lacing left in the glass. No carbonation problems at all.
S: Juicy citrus and pine pretty much dominate.
T: Sweet maltiness balanced with a burst of tropical fruits. For some reason, this was missing from the aroma. Tons of peach, guava, pineapple, mango, tangerines. Very well balanced bitterness.
M: Medium/full bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Pleasant carbonation.
O: One of the best IPAs I've had the pleasure of trying. Nice use of Nelson, a hop that's quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Bug thanks to ehammond1 for this growler...

A: Pours a light gold, slightly murky, with one full finger of fluffy white head. The foam takes forever to settle, and thee is a ton of lacing as this bee drinks. The look of this beer is stunning.

S: The nose is really nice. Fresh hop vegetal, pine, and lime citrus. Really nice.

T: It starts off wet and refreshing with some really nice fresh hop flavor. It's bright and crisp with muted vegetation. As it moves to the back end, it gets sweet while simultaniously bringing out lime citrus and pine notes. The finish is big hops, but nothing astringent or burning.

M: Light bodied beer. Light and refreshing to start, hoppy and assertive, but not overwhelming. Super drinkable IPA. You'd think the abv of this beer was significantly less than 7.5%.

O: I am a fan. This beer is super drinkable, packed with delicious favor, and it looks beautiful. This one is a winner. I wish I could have more of this in my life.
