From the recently released six packs.
Produces a finger-thick, frothy head. Persists well. Amber colored liquid with slight haziness. Slight carbonation is evident.
A dank, resinous hop aroma is present even as the bottle is poured. Second whiffs detect citrusy orange. There is a heavy malt presence in there as well.
Citrus is much more apparent on the tongue. It is very suggestive of orange juice, but with some resinous hops mixed in. Imagine orange juice meeting a Randal with hops. Grapefruit peel hits the tongue and lingers. Bready and sweet malts mellow thing out and bring some balance to the brew.
Sweet and then tangy. Long, dry, bitter finish.
Like I said before, OJ meets beer here, but this is better than when you were in college and might have mixed the two. Way better.

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.
