4.53/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Clear orange. Bubbly white head settles rather quickly. Light rings of lacing.

S: Very floral. It's like a bouquet of flowers. Lots of tropical notes too. Pineapple and orange. Green and pithy with hint of pine. Subtle caramel and biscuity malt base.

T: Green, pithy, and floral hops. Dank, oily tide of bitterness builds. Quick bursts of tropical fruits come through now and then, mostly orange and peach. Malt tastes are reminiscent of biscuits and just a touch of caramel. The malt taste doesn't come through much, but it provides a nice base. Pine just before the finish. Finishes with bitter, oily hop tastes, pith, and pine resin.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Creamy and well rounded with some of that enamel-stripping feeling.

O: This is an excellent IPA. Maybe my new favorite. It has drinkability in spades, and is brimming with mouth-watering hop flavors. This is an easy rival for anything from the west coast.

Notes: A great value for the money too.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
