Served from bottle into snifter glasses.
A: Golden. Minimal amount of sediment, if any. Medium, white head.
S: Lots of sweetness. (Uh oh - could be a sign of an older bottle). Light pineapple/citrus notes are coming through, though.
T: A bit dull, in my opinion. After just having a hoppier DIPA, it almost tastes bland. Sure, it seems pretty well balanced, as far as hops and malt flavors go, but it's almost like drinking some slightly bitter water. Yet, there is a slight bitterness that remains in the aftertaste (possibly along with some sweetness? how does that work?). Main flavors are pretty subtle and seem to be dominated by citrusy bitterness.
M: Nothing out of the ordinary - medium body and carbonation.
O: Just not very interesting. Maybe the bottle was not too fresh and/or the serving temperature was too cold, but I'm just not feeling excited about this one.

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.
