Best before August

A - murky copper body, small offwhite head with decent retention.

S - Intensely piny pungent-ness, some tropical fruits, some floral notes.

T - floral hops, pine, tropical fruits. Nice combination, but i think the balance isnt quite right.

M - aggressive, medium body, fairly light.

O (D) - A very nice IPA. Original, interesting. its good.

Appearance: pours a hazy orangish gold.

Smell: Usual IPA smell with pine and citrus..

Taste: Good flavor from this ipa with a lot of malt and pine with some hints of citrus. I'm not sure what the meaning of the name is but I'm not tasting any floral tones to this one. A bit disappointing I must say.

Overall: I'd buy this ipa again but it doesn't quite wow me. It reminds me of Green Flash West Coast ipa but not quite as good.

12 oz bottle. Best-by date notched on side of label.

Pours a cloudy orange, with an eggshell head that sticks all over the glass. Smell is very grapefruit-like, with some of that great candy too. Tastes the same - a ton of tart citrusy hops, but it starts off sweet and finishes bitter. Very nice complexity. Easy to drink. A very nice, dynamic IPA.

Received a growler of this in the Growler Plus BIF.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Pours a very pale, largely transparent gold with a generous 2-3 finger crown. Very forward, yet subtle and mild hop nose. The taste is hoppy but clean. It's not a tongue scorcher. Some mild citrus involved. Little to no pine. Mouthfeel is sticky but thin. It coats the mouth, but not for long. There's a mildly bitter aftertaste that lingers, but it's pleasant. Overall, this is a marvelous IPA.

On tap at senate.

Hazy orange with white head that lingers we'll.

There is no mistaking the citrusy aromas from the hops. Some pine and zesty herbal notes too.

Medium mouthfeel with a nice punch from the hops. Chewy bread characters from the malt bill. Great hop complexity adds dimension to this IPA. It feels layered with hop character; more floral zesty notes, lemon zest, grapefruit and a bit of pine.

Very nicely done. I enjoyed this until the last drop.
