12oz bottle best by 09/16/13, tasted 06/10/13
A – Pours a very pale light straw yellow. Somewhat hazy as well. Head is bright white, and quite frothy, albeit thin. Lacing left behind is nice, but spotty.
S – Nice melon notes, some crisp citrus as well. Dominated by a unique bouquet of papaya and mango as well, nicely dry as well, while it remains fruity. Hop profile here is great.
T – Similar to the nose, though the papaya and mango notes do make quite a statement, some dried apricot notes as well. This is not overly sweet, which is great, and whatever malt backbone there is only comes across on the nice and long finish.
M – Carbonation is on the low side, but overall this is nice and crisp for the style, the rice adds a surprisingly nice touch to this one.
O – Nicely drinkable and very refreshing. The hop notes are very tropical and the malt backbone is nicely subdued. ABV is hidden well.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a lightly cloudy golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that diminished slowly, down to a large puddled film and medium collar with excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was pleasantly sweet with light grain malts, citrus and floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and tangerine), tropical fruit (mango, pineapple and papaya) and a very light hint of alcohol.
The taste started out lightly sweet with notes of caramel and citrus, but quickly became moderately bitter with a bold fruitiness and a strong alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted for a nice long time following the swallow, with a hoppy alcohol taste left lingering on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy, dry texture and a carbonation that was a subdued medium in intensity.
Overall this is a really tasty and well balanced IPA. I don't know if it is the rice that made the difference, but it is put together exceptionally well making it a very enjoyable drinking experience...
