12 oz. bottle, best by 7/19/14, poured into a Duvel tulip. Hazy light orange/yellow body with a three-finger off-white head. Good retention and lots of lacing as the head recedes.
Nice hop aroma starting with a citrus orange note and blending into a more tropical fruit aroma. The tropical fruit aroma blends with a caramel malt note for an overall sweet expectation from the aroma.
Ah, but the flavor deviates a bit from the aroma. The citrus flavors definitely dominate the flavor but a slight bitterness blends into the flavor along the lines of light grapefruit and light grassy note. A caramel maltiness brings it all together.
Medium thickness in the mouthfeel with very little alcohol noted. Very solid and tasty IPA that will be a regular when in season for me. Highly recommend.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/7/14
A clear dark amber with just a couple visible bubbles but a well sustained thumbs width of foam leaves 6 pencil thin rings before falling, looks sexy
S grapefruit, melon, tangerine, bruised mango, has a fruit candy thing going for it, gummy bears? floral notes, some spruce and caramel
T juicy, lots of caramel, some lime rind, still has a candy thing going for it, balanced for a West Coast IPA
M medium bodied, creams up just stopping short of foam, just a little grit, gummy bears and citrus rind on the finish
O solid IPA, not exactly a palate wrecker like I was expecting but an easy drinking IPA with a solid malt backbone keeping the hops in check
I'll have no problems with the 5 bottles I have left in the fridge but at over 20$ a 6er it might be tough buying another 6 with better IPA's on the same shelf for less money.
