bottled 2/11/14-- date on the bottle

A- Semi clear gold color with hints of orange.. very nice lacing, 2 fingers of head that anticipated pretty quickly

S- can you say PINE? lol very piney hop notes up front.. very faint citrus.. very nice aroma

T- Pine up front with a nice fruity balance with a bitter aftertaste... very impressed with this..

M- Smooth with a bitter feel.. nicely done

O- being from the cleveland area.. this is very easy to get.. ive had it before really liked it.. it belongs in my top 10 but there are 4 or 5 beers i like better than this one.. if you come to cleveland visit fatheads.. they do a great job

This is my favorite IPA that I've ever had; sampled this beaut at the FatHeads on the Southside of Pittsburgh in a pint glass. Could God have crafted 16.9 oz more perfectly? I'm not sure...

A: Glorious- cloudy, but just right for something this powerful. The head was about an inch on this pour, and felt... right.

S: So fruity, earthy, and mellow. Citrus and pine are the predominant notes, but there's others. My early-spring nostrils didn't catch them all, so I'll come back soon to update.

T: Those same citrus and pine notes, plus apple and pineapple (good work, Fatheads). Oh, and I forgot- HOPS. SO MANY HOPS AND I LOVE IT.

M: Great carbonation, but a little (and I mean little) more light than I would normally ask for.

O: Amazing. My all-time favorite beer.
