25.4oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with over an inch of frothy head. Some lacing. The aroma is citrus and piney hops. Smells slightly sweet and boozey. The taste is piney and citrus hops at first with some light tropical fruit notes. Lots of lightly toasted malts. Pine and malts at the finish with more of the tropical fruit hints. Mouthfeel is too carbonated for an IPA for me. I'm surprised this is only a single IPA because it tastes boozier than I'd expected for the ABV. Good amount of bitterness. Overall, this one is a bit all over the place but I dig it and would buy it again.

Bottled on 4/11/14.Pours a dull burnt orange tinged medium golden with a huge blooming white head in fact an overflow even with a somewhat gentle pour.Citrusy hops in the nose but not real in your face with some mild pine as well,sweet alcohol is there along with caramel sweetness.Really carbonated in my opinion too much,pretty prickly and sharp.Citrus and melon notes on the palate with a real alcoholic edge like alot of Weyerbacher stuff,not in your face alcohol but it plays a big role.Eh not one I'll go back to,the hops don't pack enough punch for me.

I poured this beer it has a copper color body with a thick white head.
The smell has a rich citrus hop aroma to it. The taste is a hop bomb all the way, citrus and piney notes hits.the tongue. Leaves a hop film on the tongue. A little malt om the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.
Can't wait to try 2014 hop variety.
