I've always enjoyed Heavy Seas beers, they are well done and strong. The mix pack is a great value.
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a one finger foamy white head. Minimal lacing and retention.
S - Plenty of citrus and tropical fruits along with grassy hops. Very floral and sweet smelling.
T - Bitter citrus hops up front give way to a sweet combination of tropical fruit flavors: orange, pineapple, and grapefruit mainly. Some yeast and alcohol is noticeable in the dry finish. Lingering taste is of grassy hops and flowers. Very well balanced and not overly malty, which I love in an IPA.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly sticky on the lips.
D - Very easy drinking for a 7.25% beer. Dangerously sessionable.
Overall this was a really great IPA in my opinion and I would definitely pick it up again. One of the better IPAs I have had recently and another great brew from Heavy Seas. Definitely worth buying a six pack of or sampling in the mix pack.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Two finger head, clear golden color. Nose is citrusy (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) and hoppy - smells incredible.
Taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are more pronounced. Not overly carbonated. For a triple hopped IPA it isn't as aggressive in the hop flavors as it could be - not for drinking quickly, but definitely more drinkable than some similar beers. Could probably appeal to hopheads and those less enthusiastic about aggressive beers.
Overall a very good beer, one I'd like to keep around. Glad I picked it up on my way back from Baltimore.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Golden-orange color, big off-white head, fluffy. ample amounts of all kinds of lacing. Bubbly.
S- Piney hop aroma, some citrus and malts.
T- It's malty paired with those piney hops and earthy floral flavor.
M- Big body, thick and resinous. Well carbonated. Long hope bite finish.
O- Big hop profile that is not overly bitter. Better tan I expected.
