12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Reasonably aggressive pour it comes out with a nice cream colored head. It comes out thick with many different sized bubbles, a lot of good looking lacing on the glass too.Pours a nice golden color with excellent clarity.

Smell is nice. There's a common statement to describe someone "don't mistake kindness for weakness" and that's how I kind of feel about this beer. It's a pretty hoppy beer but the hops come at you pretty easily. Starts citrusy and goes from floral to pine quite nicely. Sweetness is there too, some toasted sweetbread aromas.

Very good tasting IPA. I normally go for the aggressively hoppy IPAs, this one isn't too hoppy, but it's great. Starts with a great caramel sweetness and graduallly goes into a nice hoppy flavor that starts more of a piney/nectar flavor and goes to a nice grapefruit. Really great.

I think Troegs totally nailed the texture of this beer. Carbonation level is perfect. Lite, crisp, and refreshing while being a little dry. Sweet start with a nice clean snappy bitter finish. Overall a really great IPA by Troegs, nothing not to love about this IPA. I bought a six pack, but wouldn't hate it if it were a 12.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle 060812.

A: Pours a clear light golden with a puffy 1 finger white head. Some visible carbonation and a little lacing.

S: Very floral aroma. Great hop smell provides some earthiness, pine and fruitiness. A nice pure hop, minimal malt.

T: Not as much hop bitterness as I expected but more of the earthy hop tones. Even though there isnt much malt to balance it out, it doesnt seem to suffer and stays light.

M: Very refreshing IPA. Pretty light with ample carbonation. Goes down very easy considering this is lingering on double IPA status.

Overall another great brew from Troegs. They nail it when it comes to anything hoppy and this is no exception. A good change of pace from super bitter IPA's.

Deep and rich resinous hop smells of mango grapefruit and citrus all combining for an overall sweet smell. Very nice and crisp like a Stone IPA would be and rather refreshing because of the crisp hop bite and perfect amount of carbonation. I get the tastes of full on citrus orange juice qualities with the bitter grapefruit lasting on the back of the tongue.

As for malts I get a bready molasses thick sweetness although the body tends to stay towards the lighter side as the appearance indicates. The malt and hop sweetness work great in unison in this beer.

This and Nugget Nectar are obviously IPA nectars. They are juicy and crisp and exactly how an IPA should be. Very fruity although in a different way. This beer is fantastic.
