look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

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...

A: Beautiful light golden color with a long-lasting, sticky, creamy head.

S: An immediate full nose of hops - on the catty side (which is a good thing for me). Became more complex with warming.

T: Fabulous balanced taste. Complex hops and a nice bread flavor. Clean bitter citrus taste in the middle and another intense hop blast in the swallow.

M: Carbonation was forward throughout the tasting with a light, dray and refreshing mouthfeel.

O: This beer was a fun - an absolute delight. Just can't think of a way to improve this brew, but then I have have too admit a bias toward hoppy IPAs.

Pours a light golden color - very clear with a bubbly white head leaning towards cream - good retention & nice lacing. Bottled on date clearly visible - this has about a month on it.

A nice floral bouquet in the nose with a big citrus punch grapefruit, orange, tangerine - an alluring aroma.

Malty chewy biscuit up front quickly fades to sweet tangerine which is almost immediately lost to bitter grapefruit. A roller coaster of delight for the taste buds. Finish is dry with a bitter herb punch. A delightful IPA that is exciting and delicious.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle courtesy of Suspect pours a hazed gold color with a tight-bubbled white head. Nice, stiff retention and fluffy lace.

Nose is honeysuckle galore with lots of bitter, floral hops and a substantial crackery malt base.

Taste has a nice sharp honeyed malt up front with an equal 1-2 punch of hop flavor and bitterness....kinda floral with a hint of pine resin and grapefruit peel. More tropical-esque flavors come out as it warms but the beer stays well balanced (hop flavor/bitter) and smooth. Good offering from Troegs, but probably falls in the B-list class of IPAs overall.
