A - Hazy marigold orange brew with a massive three finger orange-rind colored head that gets rocky as it recedes to a nice tight cap. A whole bunch of sticky gold lace is left on the glass, and a swirl easily brings back a full two fingers. A whole bunch of yeasty chunks are floating around in there too! A damn fine looking brew!
S - Mandarin orange hops hit the nose right off the bat. Sweet and sour sauce....like General Tso's Chicken or that Sweet and Sour Orange Chicken stuff at Chinese restaurants. Sort of one dimensional though...mainly just sweet mandarin orange juice supported by a thin malt backdrop.
T - Sweet mandarin orange all over the place, followed by some pine sap nuances in the finish. Some really nice mineral qualities add some complexity, and it's much more malty that the nose suggests. This is damn good stuff.
M - Medium bodied and greasy with hop oils. The slightly dry finish leaves a lingering hop residue that is hop-head paradise. I like it!
D - An outstanding IPA. Lots of really nice hop flavors and a not-overly-dry finish, when combined with that great mouthfeel add up to a really drinkable IPA.
