12oz bottle picked up during a weekend trip through michigan. drank out of my sierra nevada hop tulip glass
A- this one pours out a darkish hazy golden colored body with a small layer of bright white head on it. the head lasts for a long time and leaves rings of lacing behind.
S- faint caramel and toffee malts and a huge rush of hops. very piny and citrusy.
T- the taste is equally as unbalanced as the smell. a little bit of sweet caramel and toffee malts upfront, and then a barrage of hops. lots of citrus and pine resin. grapefruit. some earthy notes as well.
M- medium bodied and well carbonated. very bitter and leaves the mouth feeling dry. no complaints here.
D- a great IPA and something id love to have on my local shelves. more please, this one is great

Brilliantly clear, on the gold/amber bolder, but fairly pale. Pours a nice tight head, creamy and with nice retention.
Rich hop aroma, more on the pine side. Has some malty notes in support to balance out the aroma. Sampling fairly cold, but feel like their might be a little alcohol just out of reach in the nose.
Wow, hops! Big, solventy but not overpowering hop flavor, a piney/earthy flavor with a hint of nuttiness. I know the malt is there, but it is buried under the hops. Hop bitterness in the finish is intense yet somehow smooth.
Borderline tongue scraper in terms of hop bitterness on the tongue, but not overly astringent. Some definite warming, not out of line for the style. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.
A really expertly crafted beer. How it could be so hoppy without much in the way of harshness was impressive to me. The nature of the hop flavor isn't my personal favorite, but they used the hops to maximum advantage.
