A big thanks to ManMoosePig for this beer. in his FIRST trade. i suspect there will be many more.

12oz can poured into a J Wakefield snifter.

A- one finger head, slightly rocky, atop a cloudy deep goldenrod hue.

S- pine, citrus of orange, grapefruit, tangerine. resinous undertones.

T- Balanced malt backbone, leads to hoppy, floral/citrus balance. not as bitter as i thought it would be.

M- syrupy, less carbonated than i would prefer. medium/short finish.

O- i was a bit disappointed in this one. Very drinkable, but in relation to the stellar scores it has received, it fell quite a bit short. if it were available locally, i would buy it, but wouldnt rave about it.

Again, a big thanks to ManMoosePig. Beautiful box.

EDIT:
This fucking crazy person, ManMoosePig, sent me a free box of super fresh Gandhi-Bot because he didnt like my review! What a nut!
Seriously dude thanks so much... completely unsolicited and unexpected. Advocate.

This go-round, i got quite a bit more pine in the nose, which is much more floral overall and hop-forward. It still has a big malt backbone and fresher seems to carry more of a honey-sweetness. Long finish and overall the freshness make a noticeable difference. Thanks again brother!

12oz can poured into my CBS snifter

A - Pours a hazy, medium orange with a two finger light tan head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrusy, oranges zest , lemons, grapefruit followed by a slight sweet maltiness.

T - Same as the smell, but a bit more malty.

D - Slight bitter finish. Good carbonation and a slightly chewy.

O - This is a nicely balanced IPA with a nice bitter aftertaste that stays a long time !
