A: Looks as good as an IPA can get. Nice apricoty cloudy color with a not so dense head. Beautiful color, makes me wish it was warmer outside.
S: Apricoty, like the color oddly enough, sweet. Not super strong, but really amazing.
T: The least bitter IPA I've ever had. And somewhat smooth for an IPA too. Difficult to describe. Hoppy of course. Some pine. The body is smooth and creamy, very different. There's a vanilla ice cream flavor in there, right in the middle of the flavor. The aftertaste is bitter like an IPA, but not so strong.
M: Soft with a carbonation sparkle on top.
D: Not poundable, but i think this one is just fantastic. Yet the sum of it's parts somehow seem less than as individual traits, which is strange to say. I think this is my highest rated review yet. Best IPA I've ever had. Different, and quite special.
Holy crap, what a great beer.

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
