A: Pour a pale golden color. Very crisp/clear in appearance. A nice 1/4 inch white head emerges, but dissipates quickly, leaving just a thin white layer of bubbles. Pretty decent lacing.
S: A nice dry, bitter aroma. Faint floral smell, with a slight, subtle sweetness from some citrus notes. Restrained, but quite nice. Perfumey.
T: Tropical yet dry. Hints of oranges and lemon zest. Slight bitterness, with a pleasantly dry finish. A light earthy flavor as well. Outstanding.
M: Dry, light-bodied, with bubbly carbonation. This beer is amazingly drinkable. I could easily see myself drinking a 6 pack in a night (against my better judgement). Drinks so light, the alcohol is almost unnoticeable.
O: This might be my ideal IPA. Light, dry, bitter, with just enough citrusy sweetness. It doesn't have the powerful nose or big flavor to stand up to the top DIPAs, but it's on a short list of IPAs for me. Really flavorful yet easy to drink. I'll never be unhappy receiving this one.

4.16/5 rDev -2.1%

Poured a honey color in a Spiegalgau glass with a 1 finger head. Slightly lighter color than most IPAs I have tasted. Carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass.
The aroma is not strong-citrus and tropical fruit.
The mouth feel is very carbonated.
The taste is citrus and tropical fruit.
The finish is wonderful. This is a hop bomb. Very spicy, slightly bitter, and very, very hoppy. One of the hoppiest beers I have tasted to date.
Overall, a solid IPA. The citrus is not prominent, but the hoppiness wins the day.
Best tasted close to 50°F.
