A - Orange with powerful carbonation rolling up the sides, transparent, white head, quite persistent, and massive lacing.

S - Pine, lemon, biscuity malts. Hoppy snap.

T - Brilliant combination of hops follows the nose, with glimpses of pine, lemon and orange, slight hint of sweetness. Close builds bitterness, then fades slowly.

M - Powerful carbonation scrubs serious hop drying and a touch of crunch. The end is a pretty clean palate for the next drink.

O - This is an extraordinary trick, bringing ringing hop flavor without burning my palate to the ground. Solid drinkability. I'll pick up a sixer of this, for sure.

Canned on 2/2/15. Hazy copper color, nice head and lacing. Aroma was pretty light with a bit of citrus and sweet bready malt. The taste had some nice citrus flavors and a decent malt backbone. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, I thought it was just OK - not that special.

Can. Pours a clearer honey with chill haze. Thick white, frothy head. Strings of lacing. Fairly pungent citrus hoppiness. Grapefruit candy hops. Perfumey floral hops and a dosage of pine. Sugary malt. Similar hoppiness. Candied citrus, pine and floral hops. Noticeable sweetness via the malt. No discernible flavors there, just sweet. Medium bodied. High bitterness. Pretty powerful hop-forward offering. I won't hesitate to suck back this six pack.

Has a nice clear, copper color with a nice thick, white head.
Smells sweet, some citrus notes, very fruity. I picked up on some floral aroma as well.
Immediately taste some malty sweetness with a nice smooth finish. Little to no bitterness. Hint of citrus flavors in the aftertaste.
Very mild carbonation.
Very good IPA, I was very lucky to pick up a 6 pack.
