Extremely surprised by this one. I was very impressed by the fresh hops on the nose. Carried plenty of bitterness but not overpowering. Lots of lychee flavor...my wife even asked me if there were lychees in the beer. Overall, an extremely bright flavorful IPA. Will drink many times again.
I should emphasize that I had this fresh from a growler, which may have really helped with the bright fresh hops on the nose. Not sure how this would be from a 6-month old bottle.
Serving type: growler

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Duvel tulip. Best by Nov (2012) notched on label. Purchased by my good friend Pat N at the brewery.
A: Slightly amber golden with 2 fingers of frothy nearly white foamy head with good retention and draping lace.
S: Floral, citrus, pine, and a little bit of tropical fruits with a fairly lush but not sweet caramel maltiness
T: Solid bitterness -- treads the line very well and spot on for the style -- with lemon, grapefruit, and orange citrus, pine, and floral notes and only a touch of resin. Less fruity in the flavor compared to the aroma. Solid grapefruit aftertaste.
M: Good body with slick mouthfeel and middle of the road carbonation for the style.
O: A really good American IPA which hits all of the good hops notes and drinks much easier than its 7.5%. Thanks Pat!
