Poured a 2-week old bottle into a tulip shaped glass.

The appearance was a clear, deep-copper with a bright-white 2 finger head. The top of the glass held on to some of the lacing.

The aroma might be my favorite part of this beer. Strong fruit, melon & citrus from the moment you pour it.

The taste is good, I wish a little more of the aroma worked its way into the taste. That said, i'm splitting hairs here. This is a fantastic beer, one of the best I've ever had. It is easily in my top 5 of single IPA's.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Two weeks old, poured into my teku...

A - Dark orange, hazy with a fluffy one finger, frothy head. Sticky lace remains throughout consumption

S - Pine, malts, bread, biscuits, orange zest, citrus

T - Much of the same as the nose except the citrus notes take over. Orange and lemon come to the forefront with a piney, slightly bitter aftertaste

M - Mild carbonation, medium feel, creaminess, hops, awesome

O - A damn fine IPA. Deserves the accolades it gets but it's just a step behind PTE in my opinion. Not as complex and little more sessionable as well when compared to the former. This is one I would go to all the time if it was available here. Well done!

Bottled 1/16/14

Poured into a snifter with a white one finger head. Crystal clear yellow/orange appearance. Nose is very balanced between hops and bready malts. Taste follows suit. This is my first time with this beer and i'm impressed. Very balanced with a bitterness lingering on the tongue that leaves me wanting more. Could drink this all day.
