Pours honey golden in color with a fluffy one finger white head that has good retention. Lots of carbonation bubbling up and a slight haze.
Smell is incredible. Tons of grapefruit peach and pear hop aromas, strait fruit from front to back. Really bright vibrant aromas and is smells super crisp and juicy. Light caramel malt add a nice backdrop but the fruity hops are the show.
Loads of hop oils and resin are the first to hit the palate with crisp pine and lightly herbal flavors. Some citrus follows with grapefruit being the most dominate but there is also some slight mandarin orange. Hop oils and resin persist well into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is great, tons of oils and resin are cut with a nicely balanced moderate to high carbonation to keep it refreshing and highly drinkable.

Poured into a snifter from a twelve-ounce bottle.
A- Beautiful color on this: golden and copper. There's a foamy, frothy head with lots of bubbles. The head is three fingers thick and leaves sticky lacing around the interior of the glass.
S- The aroma is wonderful and takes me to Florida--- citrusy, tropical before becoming piney and showing off resinous hops. I get some grapefruit and breadiness in there as well.
T- Tastes much like what the aroma lead me to expect.I get a ton of grapefruit and other citrus, some tartness as a result, breadiness and then a bitter hop finish.
M- Tart and citrusy up front, malty and creamy in the middle for smooth sipping, and then a dry bitter finish. Well-executed.
O- This was an unexpected treat. I really enjoyed this beer. I'd drink a ton of this if I had easy access.

Crystal clear straw color but with a crapload of large white floaters.
Fresh orange and grapefruit aromas. Pine to a lesser extent. A tad big grainy malt.
Clean and juicy citrus taste. Herbal tea. Light malt profile.
Lighter body, dry, only slightly bitter. Medium carbonation.
A very nice IPA that drinks a lot lighter than it is.

Pours a clear golden color with a tight, white head that leaves rings of lacing.
Smells of floral and grassy hops with some malt sweetness to it.
Tastes of a big wave of hops with a solid malt backbone. Hops lead off with floral, citrus, and grass notes that are moderately bitter. A touch of fruit makes an appearance with some malt sweetness sweeping in and rounding everything out. Notes of caramel and toasted bread lead into an earthy finish.
Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is delicious and it is well worth a try.
