Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. A hazy tangerine color with a 1 finger foamy head that subsides quickly.

S. The nose gives off a nice balance of sweet malts and hops. Slight citrus, pineapple, banana.

T. Very nice balance of malts and citrus hops. Very enjoyable. Notes of pineapple and banana agreeing with the nose. A mild hop resin aftertaste.

M. Medium bodied. Decent carbonation but there could be more. Finishes slightly dry.

O. A nice IPA. Looks good but then the head just disappears. Smells nice. Tastes better. Could use a little more carbonation but all in all a nice beer.

Pours a nice semi-cloudy orange-amber. Head looks nice at first, but packs it's bags early and hightails it out of there rapidly, leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is great with hints of tropical citrus, lots of mango and orange. Also a slight bit of hop aroma(floral). Taste is bold up front with citrus peel, sweet citrus and piney resin. Rapid flavor decrease as it goes down, leaving a slight bitter, sweet citrus aftertaste. Alcohol is hidden very well and this beer is very drinkable. I just wish that the flavors were a little more bolder and lasted longer. Doesn't quite have the oomph of a DIPA.
