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.

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!
