Poured from a bottle into a regular pint glass.

Appearance: Perfect IPA look with a finger of head. My god, this is the best possible start for an IPA in color, appearance, and head.

Smell: Nearly perfect in smell. Very hoppy with citrus shining through but there is a slight hint of iron that detracts from the scent. As I said though, nearly perfect.

Taste: الحمد لله (thank God) sorry for my Arabic but this beer pushes the envelope for what an IPA is supposed to taste like and is everything that one should hope for and expect. Upon tasting there is the bitterness that one hopes and dreams of but it is quickly replaced by sweetness, citrus, and an almost rye taste. Be advised, this beer is going to knock your socks off if you enjoy IPAs, especially on hot, sultry days.

Mouthfeel: What? This beer is perfect and can finish any dish, especially spicy food. It's tasty, refreshing, and smooth.

Overall: Overall? This is my favorite beer and is what all other beers should be striving for in terms of IPAs. It is perfect in color, carbonation, and foam throughout. It it nearly immaculate throughout the hoppy smell mixed with citrus with fruit. The taste is unbelievable because I have taste nothing quite similar before or since. (I tried this next to Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Ballfast Point Sculpin IPA just to be sure) I cannot believe the ingenuousness they put into this beer. Odell thank you!

Poured a gorgeous cloudy orange color with golden highlights and a half-finger white head. Fantastic. Scents of pungent herbal hops, pine resin, lemon zest, orange flesh, tropical fruit and tangerine. A wonderfully hop forward aroma bursting with notes of fruit, dank hops and pine. Excellent. Flavor begins with a nice hop forward flavor with notes of pine resin, dank vegetal, herbal hops, lemon zest and juicy tangerine flesh with medium-high bitterness and light, balancing pale malt sweetness. The middle continues flavors of dank, vegetal hops and pine resin, with some juicy tangerine flesh and grapefruit peel. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, dank, vegetal hops, grapefruit peel, orange peel and orange blossom with medium bitterness. Aftertaste is pine resin, grapefruit and orange peel and a slight grainy malt. A very nice, hop forward, balanced, and very complex. Wonderful. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-light carbonation and a slick, oily smooth feel. Very nice and quite pleasant. Overall this is an excellent IPA that displays a wonderful hop profile in both aroma and flavor and has a fantastic mouthfeel. An amazing IPA.
