Sixer of 12oz. bottles, had my fourth out of the batch and I decided I was ready to review. I pick up something new each time and I'm loving this beer! Served at 45F. Should also mention I drank my first one at about 2 weeks after "born on", this one is a little past 4wks.

A - Bright golden body, good lacing all the way down the glass. Leaves a firm but not overdeveloped white froth. Tight sparkling carbonation.

S - This time, what I get is biscuits and honey. Other times, it has been apricot and mango, grapefruit and a hint of caramel. Each time, it has been top notch.

T - Backs up everything in the nose, outstanding complexity and achieves a balance between the flavor, the hoppiness and the yeast I could not find any hold to pick at. Perfect in that respect.

M - Impressed by the level of sweetness in this one, begins with a rush of soft sweet flavors and builds up to an enjoyable puckering bitter on the back palate. Finishes mildy though and leaves room for more.

O - Great, more than I expected, love eating my words when they are "lets see if this beer can really live up to the hype." Or in this case drinking them I guess...

Had a fresh bottle poured into a pint glass versus a 3 month old (2/20/13) poured into a mug and my oh my what a difference in taste.

It pours golden brown, 1/2 finger head which leaves pretty quickly. I didn't get anything immediately noticeable on the smell. A little bit of sweet, malty bread, some floral hops. I get a tiny bit of bitterness and mild carbonation. It's pretty smooth, slight graprefruit, oranges, a tiny bit of pine.

Overall it's an extremely solid IPA. Very drinkable and the 7% fly's under the radar. I seeked this out for awhile and I am glad I did, very good take.
