Special thanks to Maverick74 for the great extras

A - Pretty looking IPA. Hazy apple juice body with a finger of white head. Ok retention and lace.

S - Net sweet with very little bitterness. Soft raspberry jam, clementines, and a touch of plant stems.

T - Strong, dry and (pleasantly) surprisingly bitter compared to the nose. Sharp plant bitters, woody hops, and cilantro lead the way. Bread crust and orange hold the backend together.

M - Medium body with bright carbonation - maybe a shade fizzy.

O - A delicious, sharply bitter IPA.

Poured a bit cloudy with a solid white head, no lacing. The aroma was resinous and citrusy with some tropical fruits but muted in comparison to the taste. The flavor just exploded with juicy, fruity hop character. This drank like baby heady. I was amazed how much fresh hop flavor was packed into this beer. Medium body and solid carbonation. This was my first time trying any of the morph series and I was very impressed.

I think there was a problem with mine, but I'm rating it regardless because I think problems should be brought to light as part of an overall score. Everything looked and smelled fine, but beneath the dry hop was a powerfully bad taste. I'm not sure what caused it.

12oz can dated 2/3/2015, served in a stemmed glass 2/15/2015.

A- Cloudy, darker golden-yellow body; has a hologram quality to it; two finger white head with fair retention time, nice lacing.

S- Mild herbal resin, a bit of citrus with more pine. Faint grainy sweetness in the background.

F- Pine, resin, a bit of citrus. Mostly a resinous bitterness more than any other hop aromatic. Mild grainy sweetness fades out at the end, leaving the bitter resin flavours lingering on the tongue.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation. Very bitter, non-descript finish even as it warms up.

O- Pretty decent IPA; the hop profile doesn't have a ton of depth although it leaves a lot of bitterness on the palate. The light malt profile doesn't contribute much flavour and I see it as being a good blank canvas- but the hops don't contribute enough flavour here in comparison to the bitterness.
