22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/24/2014. Pours lightly cloudy bright orange amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a light-moderate malt presence; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of spicy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/grassy hop flavors with light-moderate malt presence; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice wet hop IPA. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/grassy hops with a fair amount of malt presence; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

22 oz. bottled poured into a pub glass.

A – Copper red, with a generous head. Left nice laces during consumption. Clear, no sediment. I do like the look of this beer.

S – Slight muddied hops, slight pine and misc citrus. Very subtle, doesn't really jump out of the glass at you.

T – Bland for an IPA. Hops are subtle, I suppose that is a standard for an IPA.

M – Clean finish, but leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to other IPA's. Finishes quickly, but smooth. No lingering aftertaste.

O - Overall, just ok. I love a good IPA, and this was slightly lackluster for me. I expect big hops, earthiness and balanced citrus from an IPA, and this just didn't deliver completely for me. It's run of the mill, not outstanding, but not horrible, either. I think it is important to point out that I do prefer double and imperial IPA's, however.
