Pours a nice golden with beautiful cloudiness, decent head and lacing. Aroma is full of pine resin and citrus, very pleasant !!. Taste is not what I was expecting. Hits hard at first with hops but at the same time a nice malt sweetness that balances it all out well. Intensely hopped(I like it) yet balance is nice. I wanted to try it and now I have. I think what sets this beer apart from the others is the ability to overhop this brew and yet still have a great balance and drinkabilty that other beers wish they had !!

Poured into a tulip from a bottle

A. Pours a hazy amber/copper color with a beautiful foamy 1 1/4" head.

S. A slight bread smell overshadowed by a fruit bucket of well picked hops. Makes you want to drink it.

T. What a great balance of flavors. Some biscuity maltyness with a great amount of fruity citrusy hop flavor and a little bit of white grape. Perfect amount of bitterness compliments this excellently balanced but also complex flavor. Aftertaste is like cotton candy.

M. Medium bodied with some prickly mouth carbonation that slightly follows down the throat. Just what I want out of an IPA/APA.

O. This beer is hard to beat. It's the total package. Not a weak spot here. Highly recommended and will always try to have in my fridge.

12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Bottled 10/09/2014.

Pours a clear gold color with lots of tiny bubbles and an enormous white head. Good lacing and retention.
Smells like heaven! This is the stuff dreams are made of... At least mine. Loads of lemony citrus with some tangerine and grapefruit.
The flavor is just as I had hoped. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front with just a hint of sweetness from the malt before the hops take over again for the finish.
Medium body with a dry finish and a nice lingering bitterness.

Overall, an outstanding beer. I don't know if it's an APA or and IPA, but I don't really care. What it is is an amazingly well crafted beer with about as perfect of balance as I can imagine. I would happily drink this again (and again and again).
