I was warned by the owner of my local liquor store that this IPA was incredible. Wow, this might be the best IPA ever, certainly the best I've ever tried. Pours a nice dark orange with a bit of haze. Head is a single finger height with very nice lacing. Smell is absolutely incredible, the myriad of flowers and slight spicing just burst into your nose. I just can't do this justice enough! Taste is equally floral with hints of citrus and spice. Mouthfeel is tangy, slighty alcoholic and astringent but the aftertaste is pummeled by the flowery hoppiness. Drinkability is on the high side, the sheer enjoyment when the bouquet hits your nose makes you crave more.

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.
