Bottled with love on 01/17/2013.
Light copper amber color with millions of fine particle floaties held in suspension. Impressive white cap of soapy foam, and it holds up like the truth.
Clean citrus hops in the nose with juicy notes of grapefruit and apricot. Hints of peach and orange. Has a crystalline sugar sweetness. Some floral notes and a rye-like spicy malt base that offers up half-sweetness and half-toastiness. Excellent nose.
Immediately picking up floral and citrus hops with a tinge of spiciness. Rye malts, maybe? Seriously? Sweet Georgia peach and white grapefruit and treacle (from the malts). Only moderately bitter. Tender fruits carry out in the finish with some oily green notes. Dry-hopped to all hell and this is the magic to show for it.
Medium-to-hefty body for the style. Nice and juicy. Still has a next level of carbonation bubbling through this one. I love it when a delicious IPA is super easy to drink.
Super-impressed by this one. Would certainly recommend this one.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Bottle date of 1/25/14
A - Pours a nice crystal clear copper hue with a good one finger white head that fades to a nice thin blanket. Not any side lacing.
S - Aromas of nice grapefruit and pine. Light mango, flashes of kiwi (which is neat). Very mild malts.
T - Taste is similar to the nose though far more restrained. The tropical notes are there just much subdued. Faint mango/pineapple, pine and grapefruit bitterness. Malty sweetness balances it out, lends to an almost melon thing going on. Not too bitter on the finish.
M - Mouthfeel is very, very nicely carbonated, incredibly incredibly drinkable. Great.
O - Overall, a very solid IPA. Glad I got to try it fresh and enjoy what the brewers were going for.
