This review is of the winter release. A vibrant copper/deep gold beer with an off white head. There is a rich resinous and herbal quality to the aroma, very relaxing really. Underneath it is the alcohol and a bit of yeast. The taste is much the same, Sweet and bitter all at once, although there are peaks and valleys, the flavor is fairly consistent all the way through. Gets a bit moist, then dry, then moist, then dry, really enjoyable and long on the finish. This bottle has been in the cellar for a while so it is a bit more integrated... but some IPA's are more refreshing after maturing a bit. This is one of the best to age around a year (in my opinion).

Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
