Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a DFH snifter globe.

A- pours a beautiful burnt orange, fair amount of hop haze. With a 1/4 inch tightly bubbled white head.

S-Sweet nectar, smells of freshly peeled tangerines, mild grapefruit, apricot, and fresh dank bud, big juicy hops all around.

T- sweet oranges, puckering grapefruit, dank resinous tobacco, strong malt backbone. Tons of exotic and tropical fruits in this.

M- medium bodied, fizzy carbonation that opens up the taste buds, sweet with a slightly bitter after taste.

O- well done ipa, takes the best of both coast styles and mashes them perfectly. Very above average ipa.

Pours a slight hazy orange gold color with a very thick foamy 2 finger snow white head that was cloudy looking and packed with bubbles, and faded slowly leaving amazing foamy lacing coating the sides; out of a can, this is as good as an IPA can look - just gorgeous. The head was so thick it was like an iceberg just starting to melt in the arctic sea and a pleasure to watch dissipating.

Smells of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, citrus hops, sweet malt, caramel, floral hops, flowers, brown sugar, light grains, candied sugar and spices and sweet notes like booze (rum or red wine come to mind); great smelling IPA that is fragrant and potent, with just enough malts and grains to compliment the hops.

Tastes as good as it smells, with juicy citrus hops up front, grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, sweet malt, caramel, floral hops, flowers, tangerine, brown sugar, light grains, candied sugar like Skittles, light spices like coriander and pepper, mild booze like rum, and some herbs and more hoppy sweetness; near perfect balance, a wet hop essence and tons of flavor, this is a stellar IPA.

Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and almost oily slick, with a medium body that's chewy and borders on thick feeling, average carbonation and a bitter citrus filled finish that is tangy and full of orange, grapefruit and tangerine; very sweet and juicy finish that trails off with light grains, leaving a sweet citrus pucker. A great, great IPA that was tasty and flavorful from start to finish: a top notch IPA.

Light amber-gold with a bright white 3 finger head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has pineapple, pine, and citrus. Nothing fancy about the aroma, but it is nice.

The taste has pine, pineapple, citrus zest, citrus, floral hops, and biscuit malt. There is a combination of light sweetness, a good amount of bitterness, combined with the biscuit malt flavor to make an interesting tasting beer.

Medium bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. A nice IPA worth trying if you get the chance.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

Appearance: Light gold with a small head retained throughout drinking. Nice lacing after.

Smell: Piney with citrus notes. Slight toffee.

Taste: Grapefruit is very prevalent, and that isn't a bad thing. Some mild spice on the finish. Love how balanced this beer is, caramel and sweet malts come in to save the day right before you think it is too hoppy.

Mouthfeel: Standard medium bodied, don't taste much alcohol.

Overall: Solid beer; definitely worth trying. Would love to have this one on tap.

Poured from can into pint glass. Beautiful golden amber color with some light lacing in head (which dissipated rather quickly). Strong smell of grapefruits. Taste is spicy but still bitter. Mouthfeel is waxy but still crisp. Goes down smoothly. A delicious beer to be enjoyed on any occasion. Notable IPA.
