Thanks to inebriatedjoker for this one - poured into a sweet Columbus pint that he also sent:

Body is slightly darker than Bodhi but it's got that same haze thing going on. Thick, dense white cap of froth retains well on top of that, laces perfectly.

Smells very appetizing... sweet, smooth hop profile, far from harsh but still the dominant player, some pale malts beneath that. Inviting.

It's similar to Bodhi in the way it displays a rich hop profile without imposing an invasive level of bitterness. That said, I would guess that the IBU's here are actually a bit higher than in Bodhi. Tangerine, mango, spruce tips, and just that faint dry bitterness on the tail end - like the kind you would get from a hot black tea. Nice.

Thanks for sending this one Mike - I wish this could have a year-round spot in my fridge.

From notes

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, floral hops, piney undertones and sweet toasty malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, light mango, bitter pine resins, floral hops and sweet toasty malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

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.
