(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a deep orange body with strands of microbubbles supporting a sticky white head that clings to the glass after each sip.

S- The clean candy citrus hints lead to more full apricot hops and a nice green hop with hints of mint in the finish.

T- The lifesaver candy quality to the fruity hops leads to a nice pungent hop flavor that is full in the finish. The slight sweetness of malt comes through more as pale malt as the beer opens.

M- The light mouthfeel leads to a soft alcohol warmth and a nice carbonation bite that enhances the hops

O- The nice jammy or candy fruit flavors to the hops mixed with pungent green hop flavors means I couldn't stop sniffing this beer. The malt plays a nice supporting role and makes this beer very drinkable.

Served from growler directly from brewery on February 13, 2014. Served into tulip glass.

A: Dark orange with two to three fingers of head. The head may be somewhat exaggerated due to the growler.

S: Hoppy with a citrus undertone. Hint of alcohol as well.

T: Hoppy and sweet. The alcohol does cut through, especially at the end.

M: Full body. No complaints here.

O: A good imperial IPA. The alcohol aspects knock this offering down a bit.
