A - Orange, mostly transparent, with a near white head that forms and clears out quickly but leaves fairly elaborate lacing.

S - Strong hop resin, with pine and citrus. More orange than grapefruit. Some herbal and floral notes to round things out.

T - A range of hop fruit elements. First is a strong tropical thread, mango and passion-fruit. Second comes a line of orange. Also apricot and peach elements. There is a slight malt sweetness lurking around, but this is mostly a hop show. As we close, the inevitable turn to the bitter is significant and lingering.

M - The feel is a bit more drying than some beers working this territory, but not such that it poses a challenge. Decent carbonation ensures there isn't too much of a build as you make your way through a glass.

O - I had heard good things, so when I got to Ohio and had a chance, I picked a six-pack up. Glad I did - this is a great take on the IPA, and stands up nicely against Stone, Lagunitas and other standard-bearers of the style.

A. Gold in color, much lighter than most IPAs. 1/2 finger of head. No lacing (3.75)

S. Floral hops and malt. Smells pretty good though not potent (4)

T. Grassy hops and a bitter finish. Sweet malts. Little to no citrus (3.75)

M. Low to medium carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Dry finish. Some heat from the alcohol (3.5)

O. Kind of dissapointed by this one given the hype. The bottle has an expiration date 2 months from now. That said, it is hard to tell how old this is. Would try it again if I could find a fresh bottle since my rating is much lower than the average (3.75)
