I forgot who gave this to me. I'm usually good with keeping track of who gave what, but I guess I missed this one, and I'm really sorry. If you gave me this please let me know asap so I can give you credit.
Big creamy 1.5 finger head fades semi slowly with nice lacing, hazy grapefruit peach colored.
Nose touch of bready semi sweet malt, then nice citrus hops, touch of grapefruit and tropical fruit, floral, a light Amarillo like fruitiness.
Taste has fresh hops, light tropical fruit, little juicy citrus, Amarillo fruity flavors, tangerine, nectarine, citrusy peach, etc, and light spicy piney hops. It has a decent bitter bite with light sweet malty base, touch grainy, nice balance and feels like it should have some booze but doesn't. Finish adds a long lingering bitterness, tropical fruit hops, quite dry, more of that tangerine and grapefruit like tropical fruit hops.
Mouth is med to fuller bodied, good carb.
Overall a nice ipa, fairly impressed. Good hop character, nice light malt balance, good bitterness, drinkable, a very well done IPA.

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.
