Notes/Commercial Description:
Nugget and Apollo hops added in the brew kettle provide a green, floral aroma and citrus hop base, while the later addition of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and orange - complimenting the resilient malt profile.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 4/25/14; into an Avery tulip.
Appearance - a clear orange, with some dancing carbonation bubbles. Very thin, white head. Lacing is weak.
Smell - the nose is a balanced citrus, pine, floral and grassy hops with a touch of caramel malts.
Taste - more hop forward flavors up front, but well balanced as you continue to sip.
Feel - Surprisingly carbonated feel; nice balance between the bitter hops and the malt backbone!
Overall - worth a look for DIPA fans. I've liked both IPA offerings I've had from ABC.
