I didn't plan on reviewing this... ...but...
After I poured it, I watched the concoction churning in the glass going crazy, and decided I just had to.... ...or maybe a youtube video was in order, but I'll do my best in words...
So, I poured this stuff, and it was filling the glass... Got to the bottom of the bottle where that murky stuff glops into the glass... cool... and I watched...
This poured very cloudy, leaving a beautiful soft light caramel colored head... But look at the fireworks in the glass! It was churning like crazy, bubbles were going up to the top of the liquidey part under the foam - it looked like it was boiling! This went on, but it didn't over-excite and get all over! The head just stood there, and all the commotion happened underneath! I just sat there and watched it for a while!
Better news, it smells good. Nice clean floral hops - I don't know what to label it, but it is the stuff you want to smell in an IPA. Citrus, sweet, clan.
And even better, it tastes good. Pine bite, nice bitter, with an edgy finish that works... No alcohol flavor appearance at all.
Mouthfeel cold is nice and prickley, as it warms it flattens out a bit.
Nice body to this. Kinda like a chewin' beer!
Overall, I'd recommend this. It stands out as an above average IPA. It is not watery at all. The tastes are huge and good. Smells good. Fun to watch in the glass as it settles down. Yep, if you see this, try it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours red amber with white head. Smells of citrus hops nice welcome. Tastes of citrus with very nice sweet malt, but still enough hop bite that it dominates. Beer is medium bodied slightly heavily carbonated. Overall a very good beer.
