Serving: On tap, 12oz snifter
Served: 20 Jan 2014

Appearance: Hazy golden-orange color with a pearly white head that collapses pretty quick. Marvelous lacing on the sides of the snifter as the beer is consumed.

Smell: Marvelously clean, with citrusy hop notes. Some sweetness can be smelled.

Taste: Wow, I now understand the hype about this beer- though it is definitely really hoppy, the beer has a great, sweet maltiness to it too, allowing for the beer to be hoppy but not oppressively bitter. Grapefruit and pine notes overlaying a sweet malt backbone. Excellent.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation makes this one extraordinarily refreshing.

Overall: The only problem with this beer was that it was in 12oz. I could drink pints on pints of this stuff without thinking twice. Definitely in a grey area between an APA and IPA though. I don't like this one in the APA category because of its hoppiness, but it doesn't belong in the IPA category because of its maltiness. Must try. An incredible beer.

Poured a hazy amber. Huge 3 finger foamy head of big white bubbles. Clingy lace left after every sip.

Smells of honey, hop resins, and tropical fruits.

Highly complex flavors. Tropical fruits such as pineapple, grapefruit and lemon rinds, apricots, and a slight hint of honey. Perfectly balanced malt backbone. Not too sweet, and dangerously drinkable.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied yet crisp. Hop oils leave a bit of a slick on the tongue.

Overall a stunning beer. I could drink this all day and night. Leans more toward an IPA in my opinion, but who really cares about the classification. It's an amazing brew regardless of what you call it. wish I could get this stuff on a regular basis!

12oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dain!

Pours into an imperial pint glass, forming a 1/2" light beige head over the cloudy dark golden amber brew. Head recedes slowly, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is juicy citrus.

Taste starts malty, tangerine and citrus in the middle, and closes bitter yet somewhat balanced. Mouthfeel is wow smooth, and drinkability is amazing. Will be on the lookout for again.
