12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler pint glass.

A: Pours a lighter copper color with some nice clarity. The head is a three finger eggshell color with nice retention. The head not only leaves thick rings of lace down the glass, it also leaves a bit of a floater in the center.

S: It's a typical aroma, but it's also very well done - caramel, toffee, pine nuts, grapefruit, papaya, mango, and lavender can be noted at various times.

T: The flavor is more pine forward than citrus forward in general. Light grapefruit rind pops up on the midtaste, but this is mostly dominated by floral and piny flavors. The biscuity/caramel maltiness keeps it moderately balanced; however the earthy pine notes ultimately come through more strongly on the finish. Nice IPA, but not favorite profile here.

M: Somewhat coarse in its texture, with a lot of finishing dryness. While it could be smoother and more delicate, it's not overly heavy, aiding its drinkability. Carbonation is tight and moderately strong.

O: Unfortunately, it's not an elite IPA. However, it's damn good and manages to do enough to make itself known in a crowd filled to the brim with many facsimile brews. Recommended, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear golden, head doesn't have too much retention and not much lacing.

Smells pretty complex, perfumey, tropical, and slightly citric hops, a touch of sweetness from the malt and alcohol.

Tastes more bitter than the nose let on, but all the flavors are there in abundance. The perfumey aspect along with the grainy malt / alcoholic sweetness blends very well with the earthy and slightly citric bitterness of the hops. The ending is very well balanced.

Feels medium bodied, surprisingly smooth, slick with hop resin and a just a tad syrupy from the alcohol.

Overall: A damn fine IPA

Pours a half inch head which becomes a ring buy stays. Good lacing. An opaque yellow orange in color. The smell has a mostly sweet malty yet hoppy thing happening. The taste is in the reverse nose order in my opinion. Hops followed by the malts in the back. The mouthfeel is moderate. Overall it's true to the IPA tradition. Not the best I've had but certainly enjoyable and will have again.

Had this from a bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Deep golden color, some light copper in there, with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of big grapefruits, some strong caramel malts, a hint of other tropical fruits. Flavor follows with the standard grapefruit-malt combination, not overly bitter. Fruity and slick, medium carbonation. Overall a solid beer, but nothing particularly exciting. Done right, would drink again, won't seek out again (not that it is difficult to find).
