A- a beautiful nice clear head. Foamy white head has nice retention and leaves good lacing. A steady stream of carbonation

S-nice citrus and floral hops.

T- nice subtle hops flavors throughout. There is little by way of any malt, so it tastes a little out of balance. Not badly so, just slightly. I was expecting more bombast for an Imperial IPA.

M- a little thin, especially for the style.

O- this is a good IPA, but it's not really what I was expecting for a IIPA/DIPA. Not bad at all, but not as big as I was expecting.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Spiegelau glass. Date on bottle hard to read... could only make out 2013.

A - Golden with a slight orange tinge. Gentle pour yielded a half-finger of an egg-shell white large-bubble foam. Quickly dissipated. Moderate carbonation. Clear with no sediment.

S - Very fragrant. Mango, pineapple, and kiwi.

T - Pleasant and very distinct flavor. Melon, kiwi, and lime with an intense pink grapefruit rind finish that lasts on the back of the tongue. Completely hides ABV. No noticeable malt backbone. Slight sweetness which complements bitterness.

M - Very easy to drink, almost too easy. Lasting tingle on center-back of tongue. Light-bodied with well balanced carbonation.

O - Very happy with this beer and would gladly drink again. Goes down incredibly easy and provides a wonderful grapefruit flavor. Only knock on this beer is light-bodied texture, more reminiscent of a single IPA. However, this a really good beer and I will definitely have again.

On tap 9/21:
Pours a very clear pretty straight golden color. Head is foamy white, at lasts into the drink. Carbonation is visibly sustaining the head on the surface, which laces the glass as the beer disappears. The nose is biscuit malt and citrus orange, medium in strength.

The taste starts off with a clean malt profile, cracker to biscuit. There is a light burst of melon and perhaps tropical fruit more so than the citrus I got in the nose. This is followed by a drying wooden/earthy dryness the is actually accentuated by the carbonation that hits the tongue at almost the same time. This drying bitterness never comes close to taking over the beer, and actually does a good job if letting you know it's an IPA without blasting it through a loudspeaker.

This is a pretty straightforward, solid interpretation of the style. The finish kind if fades just a but quick, but that's close to my only complaint. I think this would be a good IPA for those considering IPAs before jumping straight to west coast hop bombs.
