look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 1L growler (tasting room person said that is was kegged on 3/18/14...so, very fresh!) into a Saxo branded, 12oz, high-stemmed tulip glass.

A- Pours an absolutely clear, bronze with nothing more than a 1/2-finger's worth of head (perhaps, poured too cold)...really easy on the eyes, but a bit darker (i.e. too much crystal malt) than I like my IPAs...but whatever, aroma/flavor and mouthfeel are king!

S- Outstanding and complex...oily, resinous, piney hops followed by citrus (grapefruit, lemon/lime zest, tangerine), and then some tropical (pineapple, mango).

T- An absolute explosion of hop flavor! There is just enough malt backbone to support those very piney/resiny/tropical notes from the nose to make this beer coat the palate and demanding another sip.

M- Although the carbonation from a growler can be lighter than to be found in a bottle, there is enough to excite the palate so all of the flavors land on the palate with precision.

O- Although I take umbridge with the fact that they do not date-code the bottles (especially, their hoppier offerings), Shmaltz is turning out some exceptional, hoppy beers: Hop Manna, Death Of A Contract Brewer Black IPA and their DIPA - Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A.

Note: If you can find it, the Case Boxes have a bottled on date: 13C14 (Day, Month, Year) = March 13, 2014

Perhaps being spoiled by its freshness, I do not know why this beer doesn't score higher?
