Poured this one into a Samuel Adams pint glass. The body has a beautiful electric amber color to it that seems to actually glow, and it's topped with a creamy white head of foam.

The aroma is a well balanced mix of caramel malt notes along with a earthy floral, citrus and pine atmosphere that I expect with an IPA but could never grow tired of in a million years. The orange zest presents it's self rather nicely, and I swear I smell bud in here--the good kind.

The malt stands out proudly in the flavor, but only briefly before it gets body slammed by the hop bitterness. There's a lot of grapefruit here as well as peaches and weed that just jumps out at you like the Ralph Steadman art work on the label.

The mouthfeel is heavy and the carbonation moderate.

Overall I like this brew, and now wonder why I ignored it for so long.

This is a soild if unspectacular beer. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Dogfish Head glass, the appearance was a clear medium amber with a minimal head, small amounts of lacing and not much head retention. The nose is very floral and bready, fairly nice. Taste is a sweet malt upfront followed by that distinctive citrus flavor that I love. Finish was bitter, but not overly so. This is a great beer for what it is, but hardly the stuff of legend.
