Reviewed on 06/07/2011. Thanks to Tedwarhc. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy pale copper color with a finger of off white foam that retains nicely. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass with each sip.

A good deal going on in the nose. Nice citrus hops (oranges come to mind) are here as is some grapefruit and a slight pine character. Some grassy notes are picked up as well. Some slight malt sweetness but the nose is very hop forward.

Like the aromas in the nose, there are multiple hop flavors kicking around here. The difference is that the most prevalent character are the green/grassy notes. It's there at the beginning with a bit of orange-like citrus. It's in the middle with some soft piny bitterness. It mellows out just before the bitterness takes on a resiny character at the finish.

The body is on the lighter side of medium but it works well and allows the different hop characteristics to come through nicely. The lighter body pairs with medium carbonation to give the beer a creamy mouthfeel before a hugely dry and moderately bitter finish.

Overall an excellent IPA. Great hop flavor without hitting you over the head with them. The different hop flavors and aromas blend together nicely, which is pretty amazing considering that there are clearly a good amount of hops in this beer.
