12 oz. bottle poured into a Belgian tulip. Bottled on 12/18/13
Pours a slightly cloudy medium gold with an orange tint. One finger of puffy white head turns into a thin persistent cap with minimal lacing.
Almost all tropical fruit in the nose--mango, pineapple and papaya mainly. A little bit of grapefruit and grassy pine sneaking out of the background. A real treat for the sniffer.
When cold, the carbonation hits the tongue with a punch, but as it warms it really smoothes out and goes down extremely easy. On the light side of medium-bodied with a crisp dry finish. My only "complaint" is that I wish the flavors mimicked the nose a bit more. Don't get me wrong, it's good. Very good. But the stellar aroma ends up being a bit of a tease. I find the pine and grapefruit bitterness very refreshing. There is some complexity to the hop profile and it's very well balanced with the faint sweet malts.
This is a go-to IPA (toeing the line of DIPA) for me. Not necessarily the best I've had but always rock solid, like most of Troeg's offerings. And unlike some beers, I think I like it more every time I have it.

A: medium gold and crystal clear, two fingers of fine-foamed head; sparse lace trails behind
S: bitter hops strike resemblances to citrus groves and pith; aromas of wet flowery fields accompany
T: bitter grapefruit pith and pineapple sugars alternate across the palate; clean malt bill provides complementary structure for the hop action, which suggests various citric and resinous influences
M: medium body, slick and smooth, nicely bittering and slightly chewy and sticky
O: a fine DIPA - treads the line between IPA and DIPA - but a nicely balanced hop and malt act, very drinkable and definitely recommended
