Bottled 9/9/14 (5 days ago)

A: Super cloudy light orange pour. So cloudy it basically looks like a witbier. Enormous, frothy and tall light tan head. Head retention is top-notch and there is heavy spiderweb-like lacing everywhere.

S: Oh wow, the aroma on this is absolutely incredible as soon as I start pouring it. It smells like sweet oranges and tangerines from a distance of about 10 feet. Upon closer inspection I get more tropical aspect, like pineapple and even mango. A touch of spicy pine maybe trying to break through. Wonderful aroma. If we still had ratings for each element of the brew, this would get a 5.

T: Taste is right in line with the aroma. Very hoppy from the get go. Loaded with tropical fruit and bitter citrus. A hint of spicy pine combines with a nice big citrus peel bitter bomb in the finish. No real sign of malt that I can discern. Maybe a hint of crisp cracker malt. Long lingering grainy, bitter aftertaste. Can practically feel gritty hop sediment and hop oils floating around.

M: Medium bodied, bitter, crisp and SUPER dry.

O: Big, bold, west-coast style IPA. Super fresh, super crisp, super bitter. Great citrus and tropical fruit. Seriously delicious and one of the very best IPAs I've ever had. Dryness is astounding which does detract from the drinkability a bit, but at the same time it really lets the hoppiness shine.
