I've been wanting to try this one for a while. I believe it was worth the wait! Pours a golden and slightly amber tone with a finger length head that retains as a sticky lace. Great hop aroma accompanied by a sweetness that reminds me perhaps of a nutty cake. Taste is an explosion of hops. A bitter grapefruit like taste with a dry finish. Great feel! Creamy and chewy at the same time. An instant classic for me!

Poured into a New Belgium tulip glass. Thanks for sneaking this back from LA, Brenda.

A: Opaque, golden. An aggressive pour produced a billowy 2-finger head with staying power. Thick lacing.

S: Citrus notes aplenty, grassy hops, mangoes, lemons.

T: Delicious with low bitterness. Smooth, subtle. Citrus featuring lemon and mangoes. Lightly sweet. Very sessionable.

M: Light to medium with medium creamy carbonation.

O: Didn't know how this would hold up after 2.5 months in the closet. It was terrific. A great IPA. An easy drinker.
