Bumped into a bottle from 6/15/15 and it was stored warm, initially worried that it might be faded but turned out to be greatness! Wonderful aroma and juicy hops balanced by a great malt bill.

Mildly hazy burnt orange, good lacing. Smell is lighter, but grassy. The taste is extremely grassy with lots of freshly mowed alfalfa. The alfalfa lingers all the way into the aftertaste. Some light citrus and pine. The taste borders on the onion/garlic flavors, but is just shy of it. Smooth feel.

Poured cold into a tulip glass. Fresh within the week.
Look = 4.25 Pours a cloudy straw orange color with 1.5 fingers of crisp white head; great retention and lace.
Aroma = 3.75 Hop forward with light citrus notes, some tropical fruitiness, and floral notes, on the light side for a TG IPA
Taste = 4.25 Good flavor; light hoppy notes, floral, fruity maybe grassy built on a nice bready malt backbone. Mild but tasty, just a mild bitterness.
Feel = 4.25 Medium bodied with medium carbonation, crisp but substantial feel, a little resiny
Drinkability = 4.5 Really drinkable, tasty but mild. Mild bitterness, just going down easy.
Overall = 4.15 I find this one to be pretty underrated, likely because of its mild nature compared to most other TG IPAs. But really solid all around, great drinkability and tasty.
