Poured from a bottle with a born on date of about a month ago into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes
A: Pours a crystal clear yellow color, with lots of carbonation bubbles flowing up through the glass. One finger of foamy white head caps off the glass.
S: I'm not getting much out of the smell at all here, just a light grassy hop flavor and an indistinct sweet malt one.
T: Very multi-faceted; I'm tasting grassy, earthy, piny, and citrus hop flavors throughout the flavor, but they never clash and flow nicely into one another. Very well balanced too, with a light sweetness making the beer highly drinkable.
M: Medium body and mid-lively carbonation, leading to a lightly bubbly, dry finish, which works well with the beer's hop flavors.
O: Solid beer, a nice one to go through a few bottles of over the course of the night, even if the beer's other characteristics don't quite match its awesome taste.

Sampling cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter, the beer pours a bright clear gold color with minimal bleached white head of about .5 cm. The head fades to a thin edge layer that clings throughout the sampling.
Aroma is rich pine and grapefruit notes that are apparent immediately after pouring the beer. There is a little sweet caramel in the background.
First sip reveals a lighter body than expected and very fine rolling carbonation.
Flavor is briefly caramel malt and rolls to pine sap and grapefruit rind pretty quickly. Flavor is very consistent on each sip and doesnt have much more complexity, but it doesnt need to as a straightforward IPA.
Finish is fairly dry and leaves some general astringency on my palate. The burps are slightly vegetal and pine sap. Beer is amazingly easy to drink and I am almost done with the bottle even before I am finished jotting down my notes.
A well made, simple, yet very enjoyable beer.

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is straw to gold, light carbonation, perfect amount of bright white head, some light lacing - very hard to make an IPA look better than this.
Smell is light malt, toast quickly overtaken by pleasant but strong bitter hops, pine, citrus and earthy notes, great balance.
Taste is great, light pale malt upfront, touch of toast and biscuit, no residual sweetness, strong bitterness, flavors range from pine, to grass to citrus/grapefruit prominent. Wonderful tasting ipa, nice and dry finish and not a touch sweet.
Mouthfeel is heavy on the tongue with light touches of bitterness on the cheeks, not strong carbonation which lets the hops and malt do their thing; malt flavors are just enough to keep the hop bitterness in check.
Overall, this is one of my favorite ipas, clean malt flavors and not sweet or cloying; hops are bitter but not overdone; great ipa to split the difference between ipa and dipa.

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a small head that has still retained there at the top of the glass. It is a golden orange color with great clarity and signs of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: nice citrus, pine, and grapefruit notes followed by some caramel and bready notes.
Taste: pretty tasty IPA. Everything blends well together nice and evenly and there is a little bitterness in the end too that adds a nice kick.
Mouthfeel: smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little bitterness, and easy to drink.
Overall: Pretty solid offering from Troegs. Another beer of theirs I can add to the list. Happy to have picked up this single today.

Picked up a bottle after dinner at Capone's after dinner, oh so glad I did. The aroma has a big floral, pine resin punch. It's like a piney perfume, though there is a slight hint of booze as the beer warms. The flavor dives deeper into the citrus rind and pine juice, complemented by a bitter, peppery edge. A lot of IPAs pick up on these same notes, but this one amplifies them all in sharp, clean hits. Great IPA. Go find it.

12oz bottle into a tulip.
A: Pours a clear, orange-tinged yellow with a big white head.
S: Pineapple, orange, sweet dough and cracker malt.
T: Tropical fruits and pale malt, a bit of leafy spice, a tiny bit of bitterness.
M: Light carbonation, medium-bodied.
O: More balancing bitterness would be nice, but otherwise a solid, fruity IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (bottled on date: 6-08-12) into a Brooklyn Brewery branded Reidel Tulip Glass
A- Pours a glorious, sunshine yellow with a 1-2 finger white, fluffy head.
S- Tropical fruits (peach, pear, pineapple) and citrus (orange, grapefruit) are featured in equal amounts
T- All of the aromas are featured in the taste...sweet, tropical fruits are tamed by a pleasant, white grapefruit rind bitterness. Although the hops dominate the malt, it is well-balanced (for an American IPA) and never astrigent. A very well-balanced IPA.
M- Carbonation and bitterness makes for quite an assault on the palate...but for the hop-heads that seek a fix, you need to look no further. At 84IBU's, this is quite a bitter brew!
O- A welcome year-round offering from a world-class brewery. I remember quaffing a 22oz bottle last summer (2011) and loving it. To learn it is a year-round is welcome news. All that enjoy hops and are able to score this brew should not pass this by...it is a wonderful offering.
