Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint glass. Bottled on 4/11/14, still I believe in the range to be reviewed, the sixer was in the fridge at the grocery store.

A- Pours medium burn orange that is slightly hazy. Has a small white head that sticks around, maybe a bit lower carbed than most IPAs.

S- Classic Centennial smell of orange and floral with some light tropical notes. Some light pine as well. Very similar to Two Hearted just slight less bright IMO.

T- More floral than the nose, orange, not getting the light tropical notes, pine, light toasted malt finish, the bitterness is a bit harsher than in Two Hearted.

M- Medium

O- This is a great IPA but it doesn't quite have the hop punch of Two Hearted. Plus the malt is a bit more noticeable and the bitterness is a bit harsher, I know they use Magnum for bittering. Still vary good though.
