Enjoy By: 01/01/15

A: Pours a golden color with 2+ fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves sticky lacing down the glass

S: Some earthy and citrusy hops balanced out by a sturdy maltiness. A bit of fruity yeastiness as well

T: Follows the nose. Balanced from the start, with a mix of citrus, fruitiness, grassy/earthiness, and a bit of breadiness. Bitter throughout

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little on the prickly/abrasive side

O: A solid IPA that is very well balanced and extremely easy to drink. The IBUs definitely smack you around a little towards the end, as there is almost no residual sweetness to counteract the bitterness. If you're really into juicy IPAs, stay away. Otherwise, pick some up

Clear amber color with a thick head with medium retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma of malt sweetness slightly toasted, passion fruit juice and piñacolada.
Flavor of sweet malt, grapefruit citrusy, peaches, honey, some pine and orange-lime. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Its 70 IBUs are there, but sure partially tamed by its malt.
Bordering full body with appropriate carbonation.
Well, they deliver what they promised: a solid malt backbone and decent level of hops. So, in theory rather balanced, still I usually prefer my IPAs less malty.
