a cloudy orange-yellow with about half inch of head (nice amounts of lacing). holy crap as soon as the cap comes off your nose is bombarded with hops! citrus and floral hop aromas rise to the nose and follow up with a sweet tangerine type smell. as you take your first sip, even more floral hops travel down your nasal openings and cause for an excellent taste of bitter, floral, and citrus hop flavor all in one. it's like watching a movie in HD.. except you're drinking a beer. a deliciously tangy/citrusy ipa with a mellow bitter-sweet malty backbone. medium bodied and lightly carbonated, this ipa leaves a slight bitter aftertaste on the palate, however the smell of hops stays stuck in your nose and you want more and more and more.
what this beer lacks in appearance and texture, it more than makes up in aroma and flavor. one of my favorite locals and i believe is a year round beer now (not just spring seasonal), this beer deserves more recognition.

This is an excellent beer. Strong and drinkable IPA with a lot of lingering hop taste. It is a bittersweet bomb of goodness.
At the front end is good fresh hop taste. Great aroma once the bottle is cracked. The title does not lie, you are getting the heavy floral hop-stravaganza with this beer. This is an IPA made with care and the flavor is fresh . . . almost no extra taste, just delicious if you like tasty IPAs.
Works well with pizza and the beach. Highly recommended.

This is hands down a top 5 best IPA out there. The citrus notes after a quite potent bite from the hops is a perfect blend of happiness. It is a little pricey, but the juice is absolutely worth the squeeze. I have had twonkegs of this delicious beer over the last two years, and it is quite simply the best out there.
