500 mL bottle with a bottled on date of 090710 courtesy of bmwfan1987, thanks Curt! Pours a mostly clear, light gold color with a tight-bubbled off-white head. Pretty good retention and excellent lacing. As expected, a fine looking ale here.

Quite a nice blast of piney and citric hop aromas. Very fresh and fruity, tropical even. Malts are a faint background and let the hops do all the talking. I am enjoying sniffing this every bit as much as a Pliny, maybe even more so.

Excellent range of hop flavors melding into a bitter, but not abrasive, clean finish. I would be seriously surprised if any more hop flavor could be enjoyably packed into a beer. Juicy, resinous, flowery, ganja-esque lupulin madness! Yup, this is one fine IPA. Malts are mild mannered and grainy with a light kiss of sweetness. This could really be an APA just as easily as an IPA. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and lowish-ly carbonated, makes for fast drinking. Goes down very easy...right up there with Sculpin for best IPA I have had.
