A - Pours amber with a 3-4 finger off white head. Very fluffy with excellent retention and lacing. This is a beautiful beer.

S - Mostly pine and grapefruit hop aromas.

T - Bready Malts then an explosion of citrus and tropical fruit flavors hits the palate. Nice bitter hoppy finish. Persistent malty sweetness in the background.

M - Fairly light body; crisp and refreshing.

O - A fantastic beer all around.

Bottle poured into a teku.

Pour: Completely clear amber orange with three fingers of off white super sticky white head. Leaves loads of lacing, and the head hangs around.

Smell: Caramel sweetness that startes and carries the nose. Some nice grapefruit and pine. Some dank floral hoppiness (read: weed).

Taste: Big pine and grapefruit, followed by an even bigger caramel sweetness. Some bread. Finishes with a floral hoppiness, pine, and caramel

Mouthfeel: Pretty bitter, but more sticky sweet than a hop assault. Finishes bitter. Quite drinkable nonetheless.

Overall: About what I expected. Not incredible, but what the beer goes for isn't exactly my style.

12 ounce bottle poured into tulip glass

Appearance: Poured vigorously into tulip glass yielding a three finger head that dissipated quickly leaving extensive lacing that is lingering two minutes after pour. The beer is dark amber and is crystal clear. Head is off white and has now settled to a slim film.

Smell: Intense hop character with four different varietals working to create a sweet cherry aroma. On the exhale you can sense a distinctness that would suggest a funky characteristic strong with strong simcoe notes, And acidity from the warrior hops with an old gymnasium smell in a good way.

Taste: Prost! Hop bitterness upfront with pitted fruits. Plums, peaches and ripe mangoes. Juicy tropical notes. Slight rosemary notes. Sweet maltiness. The balance between sweet and bitter has been achieved.

Mouth feel: There is no sense of alcohol content. Like drinking pineapple orange juice. Dangerously drinkable.

Overall: The balance between the grain bill and hops is amazing. You may say that this beer is aggressively balanced. This is not considered an India pale ale because of the amber like grain bill, but if it was it would be my favorite due to the balance. I feel lucky to be a Pennsylvanian and look forward to nugget nectar season each year

A: typical copper color for amber. Solid head and lacing.
S: hop forward for an amber, but this is an imperial. More like a hybrid.
T: hops continue from smell to taste, malt balances very nicely though. Little hint of true ABV. Floral notes balanced.
M: dry, but not overly. Quenching.
O: bought from brewery, so fresh as can be (16 days from bottle to glass). Understand the hype. Call it an amber, call it an ipa, no matter. I call it a must try.
