Pours a hazy golden orange and yields the same colored body with a two finger white foamy head that had some clingy lacing and spider webbed gently, the smell has some floral, citrusy, and lots of piney hops combined with a fresh maltiness for a very good combination, the taste is bittersweet between the hops and malts, very light bittersweet aftertaste, dry finish, it was fairly easy on the palate but still has a good harsh carbonation like an AIPA should have, overall, this is a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

Pours with a dark orange body and a pearl white head with a lot of lacing. Smell is pretty mild, tangerines, orange blossoms, grapefruit rind. Taste has a lot of malty sweetness, tons of crystal malt (too much). Total hop juice, extremely fruity with the primary note being oranges, kumquats, grapefruit. Great stuff, wish they'd swap the crystal malt for something different though.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft hazy orange color with a one finger level foamy head that dissipated within less about a minute. Stringy messy lacing.
The smell had some bitter grapefruit, bitter pine and a slight undercarriage of some caramel malt.
The taste was a rush of bitter upon my tastebuds. Caramel works its way into the flavor in a sweet round about sort of way.
The mouthfeel was about light to medium bodied with a nice crisp sessionably sweetness hitting my tongue.
Overall, good, it was nice to try pretty sure I'd bang it again.

A favorite IPA of mine. Awesome bottle and even better taste. I will admit I just decided to drink it straight from the bottle when I first bought it, but have since moved on to actually pouring and enjoying the look of the beer. Amazing aroma of hops that kicks you right in the nose. Pack with citrus and floral smells that make you want to drink it through your nostrils. Taste is one that makes you sit back and let out a content sigh of relief after a hard day's work. Does a great job at hiding that strong ABV while also remaining true to the basic building blocks that make up the distinctive taste of a killer IPA.

A beer sadly dismissed by people who will drink Keith's, but not this. A fine IPA and a fine beer all around.
