Bottled 9/16/2011, drank 10/8/2011
A - Pours a clear golden color. Has a nice pale white 2 finger head on it.
S - Fruit hits you head on when you stick your nose in for whiff. Pineapples to grapefruits to mangoes. These hops have lots of citrus characteristics in them.
T - Sweet citrus flavors in the forefront with citrus peel/rinds on the backend. A nice bitter finish brings it all into harmony. The alcohol was barely noticeable.
M - It just coats your palate. Not a thick IIPA, but very crisp and refreshing.
O - This is on my top 5 list when it concerns IIPAs. The most drinkable and well rounded IIPA I've come across. Until you drink one, you won't know that the hype surrounding this beer is not really hype at all.
