Appearance: Hazy golden orange body presents an utterly staggering coarse, sticky, and remarkably persistent off-white head, perhaps three inches in depth. The lacing resembles the streaks that run through fine marble. The carbonation is profuse, minute, and fast-rising.

Aroma: Grassy and mild grapefruit hops vie with lightly toasted malt. The moderately high ABV of 7.0% is not in evidence.

Taste: The taste opens with mildly sweet toasted and caramel malt, as well as the expected wave of grassy, citric, and pine hops. As the taste progresses, the malt and hops blend harmoniously, neither overshadowing the other. The relatively high ABV of 7.0% is more felt as a warming sensation, than it is tasted. Late in the taste, the hops rise, and the mildly sweet malt becomes an undercurrent to fairly strong grapefruit and pine tar hops. Finishes with a lingering, mild pine tar note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, extraordinarily full, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very well-done, quite enjoyable, this from one who is no particular fan of the American IPA style. Nonetheless, this one is an exemplar. I will certainly be having it again.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

This is an exceptional IPA. Tons of tropical fruit juiciness. Grapefruit, apricot, and mango flavors. Nice lingering bitterness and finish. A top notch West Coast style IPA from Deep Ellum. Get it if you can.
