Thanks to Zimmerbloke for this bottle. The beer Appears semi-hazy orange with a small white head.
It smells of floral, grassy and citrusy hops. I also get a bit of a sweet mild caramel like smell.
It tastes of floral and grassy type of hops. I also get a mild grapefruit flavor to. This floral dry hop flavor is followed by a pleasant sweet malt flavor. The beer ends with a strong though not overly strong bitterness. A very nicely balanced beer.
There is ample carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel.
Overall this is a strong hoppy yet balanced IIPA that is very refreshing. A fantastic beer.

No bottling date that I can see.
A: Pours a cloudy straw/orange color. So cloudy it's almost white - looks almost exactly like a witbier. Tall, frothy and effervescent offwhite head. Big island of foam and lots of heavy, continuous lacing everywhere.
S: Oooh nice. Candied oranges and lemons. A little grapefruit thrown in. Spicy resinous pine. Nice hop variety. Maybe some bready malt?
T: Not as huge of a hop bomb as I was expecting from the aroma. Citrusy with grapefruit and orange, but much less so. Lots and lots and lots of spicy, piney hops everywhere. Not overly bitter, there is a substantial bready malt here backing it up. Wave of drying bitterness in the finish, along with sort of a salty, spicy pine kicking around. Hints of grapefruit and more pine in the drying, lingering aftertaste.
M: Somewhat heavy, quite bitter and dry on the back end.
O: Nice balanced but very hoppy at the same time. Big, bold hoppy flavors with a strong enough malt base to balance it out (mostly anyway). Only really get substantial bitterness in the bitter drying finish, the rest of the time it's quite well balanced.
