Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Dated Aug 27th 2015.

A real great looker for an IPA. Near perfect clarity, with streams of classic fine carbonation coming up. Head manages three creamy and thick full growth off the pour, clumping with a whipped up topping. The bubbles in the head are practically microscopic and peppered with just a few swiss cheese ones. Clumpy, big, a body color that is somewhere between polished copper bronze and orange, very unique looking. Stellar appearance.

Wonderful soft hop aroma. Hints of sweet tea juice, big florality as well, with a sweet controlled perfume note. Tea like sweet softness all over this that is so inviting. Small notes of malt sweetness poke out, I could nose this all day long.

Palate really brings the goods, with a bit of unexpected mouthfeel. Juicy qualities take a much more toned down route, as the body goes to much lighter and almost spritzy wet feeling. Still the flavors absolutely roll and pop on the palate. Juiced pekoe tea and orange, soft light caramel with sweet mint and herbs in the mid palate. Real big bite on the finish and swallow, of very light astringent hop quality.

Real great winner in the IPA book for these guys.
