Appearance holds a golden amber color supporting a fair head that dissipates leaving fair lace. Smell has a very nice sweet malt aroma balanced by the grapefruit bitter of the hops. Taste again has the sweetness of the malt with the grapefruit piney bitter of the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A sweet tasty IPA.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/4/2013. Pours hazy deep orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, bread, toast, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange/lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of citrus hop flavors and moderate malt balance; with a moderately crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall, despite the age of the bottle, this was a very nice IPA. Nice complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
