Thanks to cw577enfield for the bottle. Bottled 6/14/2013. (He sent it at 3 weeks old. The additional age is my fault.)

Appearance: Hazed, obviously unfiltered, burnt orange/amber. Small off-white collar with faint wisps of head. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Slightly toasted malt with some solid caramel and biscuit notes. Hops are decidedly heavy on ruby red grapefruit and orange peel with some dank elements in the back. A touch of vague tropical flavors in the back. Juicy Fruit. Overall fruity sweetness with some pine oil. Mango and a touch of alcohol. Slight herbal/floral component.

Taste: Restrained bitterness builds a little over the course of the beer. Pronounced hits of grapefruit flesh and rind with some mango and orange influence. Even pushes a bit of pineapple. Malts carry a toasted biscuity sweetness coupled with a solid caramel malt sweetness. Some caramelization as well. Some backing almost mint with a soft flora/herbal edge. Ends up nicely balanced.

Mouthfeel: Smooth up front with a slight creaminess. Gives way a slightly dry finish with a moderate carbonation. Medium body overall.

Overall: Better than Thomas Kinkade, but not Monet.

Throw this in a 6-pack smaller format bottle (or better yet a 4-pack of 16oz cans), and I'm sold. A great drinking IPA with everything you could expect from the style. Not abrasive or aggressive, but bitter enough to not be messing around. Nicely balanced with a solid overall drinkability.
