look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25
Bottled on 4/3/13
Appearance: Amber, with modest carbonation and a small white head that quickly fades away.
Smell: Piney hops, bready malt sweetness, mango, pineapple, peaches.
Taste: A seamless blend of juicy hop bitterness balanced perfectly by sweet malt. To me, this is like the East Coast Pliny. The hops are strong up front but then move back enough to let the malt let itself be known. Next, as the malt fades the hops wash back over and take over the end of the drink, with a dry, bitter finish that fades out gently. Matches up with the nose nicely.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is modest, and a bit lacking; probably my only gripe with this beer.
Overall: A good, balanced IPA. Other than the carbonation being weak, there's not much to dislike here.
Serving type: bottle

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
