look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Relatively clear for an IPA, but it still has a great golden color. Thick head quickly reduces to a one inch lacing. Appears to be heavy on the carbonation.

S-As the label indicates, it's very floral. There's a great resin scent with citrus under tones that really makes this beer stand out.

T-The taste is slightly more citrus than floral at the beginning, but finishes with a great, pine aftertaste. It's floral, but not overpowering, making it very drinkable but not an outstanding IPA.

M-The carbonation is not as heavy as previously noted, but not necessarily a bad thing. It's light and crisp without being overly harsh on the palate.

O-Do not get me wrong. It's a damn good beer, however when compared to others, it doesn't coat the tongue like other fantastic IPAs. It's a definite try and while I wish I could get more out here in Texas, I'll be okay sticking to other IPAs that are easier to find that make me equally happy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving - 12oz bottle poured slowly into a 16oz glass

Appearance -light and golden. looks lighter than many IPAs but still good looking.

Smell - fruity and flowery like name indicates.

Taste - sharp, refreshing and light, smooth tropical flavors follow. Crisp to finish. Would be great summer time drink although not a wimpy IPA.

Mouth - smooth and slightly C=creamy

Overall - refreshing and not over powering IPA. I could spend all day drinking this stuff. Only had one drink and need to get more.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass

A- pours a a nice gold color with an inch head that turns into a nice thin lace.

S- floral hops and citrus. A little pineapple and lemon.

T- same as nose. Citrusy but more florally. Like there's some pine mixed in there. A pretty bitter aftertaste too.

M- pretty carbonated. Not as smooth as other acclaimed IPAs.

O- its ok. I think i may have gotten a bottle past its prime. The notch was on the J for january so this leads me to believe that it is outdated. I want to visit this again in the future.
