Live review of a 12 oz bottle.
A: Poured a deep amber with a nice frothy one-finger cream head that slowly setted to a nice film and collar with lacing.
S: Sweet tangerine citrus and peach hops, with cinnamon apples and a slight pine behind it. It smells slightly reminiscent of pie and is very welcoming.
T: Slight caramel cinnamon apple malts with mild walnut biterness reluctantly give way to a deep pine bitterness with a very slight gin alcohol that lingers long after the sip. The citrus from the smell turns into tangerine orange.
M: A thicker body is cut by a nice creamy frothiness.
D: Very good.

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.

The beer starts off looking great poured into a tulip. Dark gold with a two finger head which clung to the sides for the whole ride. On the nose we have great citrus notes with a hint of flora and pine. Taste follows suit. Great forward pine and malt with a solid citrus finish. Great balance of bitterness. Mouthfeel is very good for the style. A lot of IPAs go for the hop bomb these days which can overpower the palate but this one does quite well. Smooth carb and very smooth bitter notes. Overall a great IPA. As opposed to others of the style, you could definitely take down a 6 of these without being overwhelmed. Can't wait for them to bottle Bodhi!
