Thoroughly enjoyed this ipa. Solid in every aspect, a well crafted representation of the style and a silky feel as well. Not as flavorful as some of the more readily accessible ipa's around but the mouthfeel is superb.

16.9 oz bottle, bottled on 09/09/12, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a thick three-finger white head, leaves behind lots of thick lacing.

S- Lots of citrus and tropical fruit, very vibrant, some pine and lightly bready malt. Smells great.

T- Citrus and tropical fruit, also a more pronounced caramel than was apparent in the nose. Caramel and orange are dominant until the finish, when a piney hoppiness takes over for a moderately bitter finish. A tiny hint of spice and alcohol is noticeable.

M- Medium-bodied, good carbonation, smooth and creamy feel.

O- A very nice IPA, very drinkable and balanced.
