Looks nice; sticky head, Lots of effervescing bubbles. Very dry, lots of resinous hops in the taste, boozyer than 7% should be. Underwhelming smell. Crisp, lots of carbonation. Very hoppy up front but not much else going on. Drinkable, but not a go to for me.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A- dark amber color, one finger head that left intermittent lacing.
S- definite hint of citrus, lemon to be exact. a scent of pine comes through too.
T- The lemon taste is evident at first, but the hops are dominant and sit on the back of your tongue with a slight bitter aftertaste.
M- It is actually too smooth for an IPA, but this makes it very drinkable and almost refreshing. Despite the slight, bitter aftertaste the overall feel is weak for an IPA.
O- I would drink it again but not on a regular basis. This is not a special occasion beer because it lacks the body and bite and hoppiness expected in a stellar IPA. That being said, it is a smooth everyday type of beer.

A - Pours a beautiful tangerine color, 1 finger head, moderate density, good lacing. A good looking beer.
S - Big citrus smell here with lots of floral background. Some dry pine, and a little booze as well.
T - You do get those nice citrus flavors in here, but has a sweeter malt to it, not overly sweet, medium dry bite from the hops. Crisp flavor.
M - The alcohol presence can be a little deterring, as well as some of the density of sweetness
O - Great year round beer from Flying Dog, love the good hop flavors extracted in this brew. Good for many occasions to come.
