poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Best by 4/27/19.

A - Darker hazy orange with a 2 finger white head. Nice retention and large blotches of lacing.

S - Pine and citrus hops, with some floral wisps. There is a pleasant, beautiful caramel maltiness that gives it an English touch.

T - Starts with some citrus, orange and grapefruit, then builds into a sweeter caramel malt backbone with some more floral hops. Finish is some orange and grapefruit bitterness.

M - Medium body, smooth, with well placed carbonation and oily.

O - As Odell puts it this is an English Style IPA with the big caramel backbone, but it has much more hoppiness. It is well done, enjoyable and easy to drink.

Poured into a Ballast Point Tulip. Just one of the best west coast style IPA's you will ever find. Orange peel, orange blossom in the smell. Faint hop smell but it is very citrusy. Smell is freaking amazing. Taste is about the same although the hop flavor is more noticeable in the taste. Hoppy, citrusy wonderfulness. Hands down one of the best IPA's out there. Cheers!

I have been drinking this IPA for a couple of years. I would forget about it ,drink a few great beers from California, then come back for another 6 pack. Man what a great beer. What balance ,aroma, those floral oils spilling in my mouth. The subtle tropics splashing in the wash between tongue and cheek. The bitters are as quiet as a child's kiss. This beer has it all ,the finish as satisfying as whipped cream on pineapple pie. Cheers!

A- Golden cider color. Lighter hue for an IPA. Low medium head. No legs. Bright IPA.

S- Malt, very little lemony citrus and low hop profile (pine).

T- Very great light IPA that doesn't have overbearing hop qualities of some IPAs. I am really enjoying this. Light malt, almost has some pilsner qualities.

M- Medium build with just the right amount of carbonation.

O- I have Myrcenary a few weeks ago and I didn't like it. It was too malty. This is top 5 IPA's that I have had. I do not claim by any means to be an aficionado of IPA.

12oz bottle into a pint glass
Best before: 5/2/14 (must be super fresh)

Thanks to fatbeats18 for sending this one over in a trade

A: Pours a crystal clear dark golden amber with 2 fingers width of slightly off white colored head which has good retention and leaves lots of lacing.

S: Huge tropical fruit and citrus notes with orange/tangerine and pineapple. Some sweet malts, juniper and pine. Wonderful.

T: Lots of piney bitterness along with some citrus rind, lemon zest and orange peel. Not really the tropical fruit notes that were on the nose but still a great hop profile. Firm malt backbone to balance things out.

M/D: Full bodied, fairly smooth, carbonation moderate maybe a touch too high for my preference, drying on the finish, drinkability is great.

O: Top notch IPA. One of the best Ive ever had.
