Bright and citrusy aromas.

Floral and fruity taste.

Creamy feel. Detecable alcohol.

Overall good. I wouldn't put it in the topen 250 personally though.

Poured a hazy dark orange with a dense looking white head.
Smells of citrus, more orange than grapefruit, pineapple, maybe a hint of mango. Catching a good bit of sweet maltiness too. 
Taste follows orange, tropical, a bit piney from the hops that ride a sturdy malt backbone, bitter sweet finish.
Feels full bodied for the style which is definitely an IPA, more likely a double. Very slight alcohol presence. Overall a great beer.
