Best IPA I have tasted yet. I will be honest I am not into appearance or smell. I am into the taste of IPAs and beer in general. The taste is amazing in this IPA. I also visited the brewery and had it on draft. Draft was delicious as well but the bottle was just as good. Almost tastes likes double IPA. I would recommend this to any IPA lover...Expensive but worth it.

Poured bottle into glass. 7.5% abv.

Appearance- Pours a nice cloudy, dull, yellow-orange honey like hue. Two finger white head that dissipates somewhat quick.

Smell- Very sweet and inviting. Quite floral as the name suggests with hints of tropical fruit like mangos.

Taste- Zesty citrus sweetness early with notes of grapefruit. There is also a honey like essence mixed in as well. Even the malt is on the sweeter side as far as a hoppy beer goes. I can't forget to mention the prominent bitterness from the hops which starts in the middle of the profile and continues straight til the end. This makes for exceptional balance.

Mouthfeel- Very smooth and in the middle of the road as far as body. Right where an IPA should be.

Overall- This reminded me much more of a DIPA than an IPA but is high on quality. Such a smooth example that is inviting on all levels. For how good it is the label needs some sprucing up like some commentary and actually listing the ABV but oh well. Appropriately named however since it is quite floral and sweet. A must try indeed.
