fairly bright orange amber color with a modest, short-lived head that leaves moderate lacing

Floral scents, tropical fruits (tangerine and papaya) and toast on the nose. Big hop flavor with floral, herbal and citrus notes. Good lingering bitterness on a firm dry toasty caramel backbone. Hop forward but with a good caramel malt backbone.

Nice mouthfeel with medium body and light carbonation.

A tasty IPA. Worth checking out.

purchased out of the cooler at Table and Vine; best before March (hopefully 2012)

Served in a pint glass. Thanks Duff27!

A- dark caramel with huge, dense off-white head. Lacing remains on the glass.

S- caramel malts, citrus and pine hop aromas

T- fairly malty, bitter citrus flavors. Pine and grassy hop bite at the finish.

M- medium body, slightly dry with creamy, oily feel.

O- very good ipa. Very well balanced with nice citrus aromas and flavors.

I had this on-tap at Capone's during the Black Friday event.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber that is on the lighter side. There is a layer of off white head that goes away almost completely.

Smell: Citrus peel hops. The hops smell very fresh. Mild amount of sweet malt.

Taste: Very fresh grassy citrus peel hops. Not a whole lot of malt here. The finish is quite bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with carbonation that is both tingly and smooth. The finish is dry.

Overall: I'm glad I got to try this really fresh. Just a tad more balance would have been fine with me.
