Strong citrus in the aroma and taste, with very noticeable hop oils. The malt body is a little sweeter than preferred, giving an English IPA balance but with American hops. Quite enjoyable overall.

From 12 oz bottle.

L - Deep golden color; thick, creamy persistent head is off-white.

S - Great fresh hop aromas of citrus and mango. Some bready malt in background.

T - Flavors are fresh and crisp: orange and grapefruit fade into lemongrass, bready malt way in the background.

F - Medium to thick body. Creamy, moderate carbonation. Strong hops bitterness and low alcohol burn. Finish is somewhat sweet.

O - A crisp, fresh , citrusy IPA. A bit thick on body and slightly cloying finish are only drawbacks for me.

Glorious layers of hops upon hops. Manna from heaven indeed. Certainly within IPA range but also very well-balanced. This one is worth going after. Call me a fan. L'chaim!

12oz bottle served in a snifter. 1335A5 is stamped near the neck. This may be a very old beer, if that's a julian date.

Pours clear amber with a smallish head and not much carbonation. Smell is old hops -- musty hay.

Taste is better -- a little brighter citrus and pine, moderate malt. Slight lemony twist.

Mouthfeel is smooth and slick. Overall, not a bad beer.
