From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that has a bottling date stamp of 122012-20:50. Sampled on January 25, 2013.

The pour is your basic golden yellow but there is no head to speak of. The clarity is good.

The aroma was my favorite part of this beer with plenty of floral, piney, perfume-like esters but at the same time they seemed muted rather than in my face like so many American IPA's.

The body falls into the light to medium range.

The taste is similar to the aroma in the way it is played down but the sharp, hop bite definitely forces itself forward at first. There are also some laid back malts. It fits the style well but there is nothing out of the ordinary about it.

Bottle from Grape and Gourmet in Virginia Beach, VA

Floral, spicy hops- very unique IPA. Bubblegum and wheat notes- very delicate and almost German in some ways. Well balanced by a delicate malt profile but lingering bitterness. Another solid offering from Troegs

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: very pale yellow. No head, lots of bubbles, decent lacing.

S: good I love east coast floral hops!

T: floral hops. Pretty bitter. Some vanilla and very slight grapefruit rind. Pineapple.

M: pretty thicker. Good chewyness. Very nice cost left on the tongue.

O: maybe not in the top 5 ipa's, but a very treasury and respectable brew.

Serving type: on-tap

bottled 11/21/12

A: nice lacing.

S: Sweet citrus, rotting melon and cat pee.

T: Sweet grapefruit and other citrus; bitter grapefruit pith. Sticky, not quite syrupy sweetness and then a lingering bitterness on the finish.

M: Full, almost fluffy, oily, not too much carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer but nothing to distinguish it in a crowded category. The mouthfeel is really nice, but combined with the sweetness, it really hurts drinkability. But then one doesn't expect to make a session of a beer of this style...
