Appearance-Pours a beautiful tangerine-amber into the glass with a thick finger and a half of white head. Retention is excellent and globs of lacing are left along the glass rim; great, love the look of it.
Aroma-Floral and 'flowery' upfront then followed by a big citric kick of tangerines, limes and grapefruit, some apricot in there too. What a unique smell, not a lot of IPAs go the floral route but I dig this.
Taste-Flavors are very floral with hints of orange rind, apricot and bitter pine sap but it's all balanced with a solid crystal malt backbone which cuts the bitterness with some sweetness. More apricot on the finish mixed with floral notes reminiscent of the early profile before ending bitter and citric.
Mouthfeel-On the fuller side for an IPA, slick and resiny; it coats the whole tongue. Carbonation is between medium and high, perfect for this beer. Truly a top notch mouthfeel.
Drinkability/Overall-This is my go-to IPA and has been for some time now, I can always get it fresh and its flavors never disapoint; a class IPA all the way
