This is a keeper. I usually find myself not returning to Ipa's with the "piney" bitter aftertaste. This one is an exception. Poured into a teku, this has seriously awesome creamy head for an ipa and it retains well. Most ipa's have head which dissipates, but not this beer. The color is deep amber, almost red, full of dancing bubbles. The scent at first is piney and spicy but halfway through mellows out and a deep jasmine scent dominates. Quite lovely really. Perfect carbonation: not too much, not too little. A mellow yet spicy and resin like taste which rounds out to slight bitterness lingering on the back of the tongue, maybe a bit grapefruit like? A bit of hotness I suppose, but this is probably just accentuated by the bitterness! This is like drinking a juicy hop!, and an extremely drinkable one at that! I cannot wait to try this on tap!

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. Bought this bottle yesterday couldn't wait to crack it.
A: deep gold with a burnt orange hue. Not much light penetration. Little head and no lace to speak of. I can see the carbonation rising rapidly in the glass.
S: pungent hops with light citrus aroma on the tail end.
T: bitter and hoppy from start to finish. The citrus smell carries over to lemon notes mixed with those hops.
M: fantastically smooth for such a bitter bomb in flavor. I could drink this all day.
O: I find myself wondering how I waited so long to pick this up and give it a try. If you an IPA/DIPA drinker this is a must try.
