3.84/5  rDev -9.4%

Tasted On: 04-14-2013
Freshness: Best before 05-2013
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Globe glass
Purchased: Received in a trade

Thanks to DrewShal9 for the trade brew

A: Golden in color, clear on the first pour and then hazy on the second. The finger of off-white head has both good retention and lacing.

S: First I get a pungent aroma of citrus hops, and then a very floral note. The floral aspect is like a perfume -- quite different than any beer I've ever smelled.

T: The taste has an up-front hop bitterness with flavors of tropical fruits and tartness of grapefruit. The malt presence is low.

M: Both body and carbonation are in the medium range, with a finish that is bitter from hops and has a few sweet malt tones making an appearance. Also features some alcohol warmth.

O: Overall a good IPA with a an interesting aroma.

4.11/5  rDev -3.1%

Reviewed from notes.

A - Beautiful golden orange color with 1 finger head. Lots of bubbles cling to the sides of the glass. Decent lacing.

S - Complex nose with notes of mango, citrus, and pineapple.

T - Not as fruity as the nose. Some citrus fruit flavor followed by floral and herbal hop notes.

M - Smooth and satisfying. Mildly astringent

O - Hop forward but smooth and drinkable. A well crafted brew.
