look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Logged from notes, shared via growler by someone at DLD '11. Apperance is gold and clear with a nice white head that retains nicely and leaves plenty of lacing. Nose is incredibly aromatic and reminds me of opening a fresh bag of pellet hops. Herbal notes paired with spice and pine pair with rich deep malts. The taste has some initial sweetness with some citrus and floral notes from the hops. As the hops subside, a caramel malt base is present. Mouthfeel is medium with appropriate carbonation making for a refreshing body. Overall, a great IPA worth tasting.

Serving type: growler

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange. Small white head. Medium collar and some wisps.

Smell - Citrus hop. Orange and grapefruit. Lots of doughy malt.

Taste - More grapefruit here. Slight sweetness. Caramel malt. Bitter finish. Straightforward but good flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation. Bitter.

Overall - I'm not blown away, but it's good. There are better IPAs even in Florida.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours hazy orange with two fingers head. Leaves light lacing.

Smells of orange zest. Slight earthy piney notes.

Taste is pleasantly albeit mildly bitter. I get mostly orange and tangerine notes. Jammy malty qualities.

Medium on the mouthfeel. Lighter carbonation.

Pleasant enough and quite enjoyable. But in the extremely competitive IPA market there quite a lot of beers of this caliber -- which for IPA lovers is a good thing.
