Wow, wow, wow. What an unbelievable beer! This maybe my favorite IPA ever! This is simply great, especially as its not an imperial/double IPA. It has a deeper golden shade with some red and orange tones. Slightly hazy appearance, but pretty clean and crisp. I got a 2 finger that settled to a nice lace that stayed throughout the drink. Aromas of citrus, pineapple and grapefruit mostly, but I detect some blood orange and mango to. Holy hops! I get that fresh piney and deeper grass and herb overtones that give way to subtle breads malts in the background. The first sip gives way to a sharp explosion of hops and citrus, bitterness, pine, more hops, a more refined 'aged' hop flavor (maybe just the blend of hops they use created this taste for me), a subtle bitter sweetness balanced with the hops and citrus. I get some sweet maltiness of light toasted malts near the end, but a nice aftertaste of hops comes back to end the drink. Very very nice in my humble opinion. Hop-forward, similar to some of the Stone brews, very unique though, stands by itself as one of the best IPA's on the market. Definatly one of short's best brews. An absolute legend!
