Have heard good things about this beer for a long time. Decided to pick up a sixer while over my parents' house. Here goes:

A: Lovely. Pours a hazy (not too hazy, though) gold color. Lots of carbonation, a sufficient head, and lots of lacing.

S: Herbal, floral, lemon, citrus rind, grapefruit. I'm getting a bouquet of flowers, not much else. It's alright, but I've had beers that melded the scents better. Not much malt despite what a lot of other reviewers are saying (I'm kind of sick, so perhaps my nose isn't functioning properly).

T: Good, but not exactly a balanced IPA like Sculpin or Zombie Dust. Taste follows the nose - lots of bitterness in the hops. Grapefruit and lemon at the back of the palate makes for a bitter mouthfeel. Good, but nothing special.

F: Great - malt lends thickness (just wish it lent flavor too). Good carbonation as well.

O: Good beer but nothing excellent.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Pours a golden haze with a 1 finger foamy white head.

S. Bready malts. Some pine hop aroma. Floral.

T. A more malt forward IPA with some pine hop flavor and a bit of bitterness. Grassy aftertaste.

M. Light to medium bodied with some nice carbonation. On a 1-10 scale a 3.5 on the body. Finishes pretty clean. The highlight of the beer for me

O. A very average IPA. Not enough hop there for me. But it's not bad. Would drink it again but with so many other options I'd probably just pass it up.
