Pours a medium dark yellow with a nice tall head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma of floral hops.

Lightly bitter, piney hops in the taste.

Mouthfeel is just a little thinner than I like, but not bad.

This beer really comes together nicely as it comes up to room temp. I like this one a lot.

A- poured a beautiful clear amber with a big creamy white head. Head has great retention and leaves moderate lacing

S- big citrus hops aromas dominate

T- there is a great big pine and citrus hops flavor that is balanced out against the caramel malt flavors (bready)

M- a little thinner than other big flavor IPAs but it makes it a little easier to drink

O- this is a great full-flavor IPA. No flaws

Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottled 10/21/13.

Pours a hazy light orange, huge 3-4 finger head that just sits there patiently. Aroma is pungent sweet hops, fruit rinds, sweet grapefruit. Taste is papaya, peaches, orange, biscuity, bitter fruit and a herbal finish. Good stuff!
