A - pours a deep murky amber/orange color. A fingers worth of tightly packed frothy white foam sits atop the opaque liquid. The foam quickly dissipates but covers the glass with little spots of lacing with each sip.
S - the nose is very intense with lots of complexity. Notes of citrus, flowers and pine just jumps from the glass. citrus notes of sweet orange pulp and candied grapefruit zest. hints of tropical fruit come out more as it warms like pineapple and passion fruit. hints of pine needles and flowers round out the nose.
T - sweet grainy bread malt profile up front. citrus flavors perk up mid palate with notes of sweet orange peel, grapefruit rind, and lemon pith. snappy bitterness. hints of pine needles. crisp slightly sweet finish.
M - smooth and creamy texture with a medium body. medium carbonation close to high.
O - Great IPA. Wish I had easy access to this, it would be something I would consistently come back to.

12oz Bottle received in trade with mtomlins - thanks!
Appearance - Light copper colour with a large size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some nice lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Hops, apricots, malts, melon, grapefruit
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, grapefruit, and pineapple. There is also some malts, melon and lot of dry hoppy notes.
Overall - Lots of hoppy flavour and some malt to back up the rest of the fruity notes. This is my first beer from this brewer and it's very solid. Reminds me a bit of a better version of the flying monkeys smashbomb ipa available to me locally.

Enjoyed on tap from a 22oz pilsner glass. Honestly was not too impressed my first time having it but had much higher regards the second time around and here is the review..
A - Pours a dark orange/reddish-gold, 1 finger head, leaves white lacing around the glass with a slowly dissipating head that remains until the end.
S - Fresh hops, piney, citrusy. Very appeasing.
T - Taste follows the smell with fresh hops that are not as powering as the smell leads to believe. Very balanced for an IPA, not incredibly hoppy in the mouth but leaves a lingering hoppy after taste.
M - Feel is medium, not too heavy in the mouth, good mix of flavors and overall very drinkable.
O - Very enjoyable beer, I liked it much more the second, third, and fourth go around. Fairly unique for an IPA in its balance and drinkability. This one is easy to have a few of.
