A- Dark golden, more or less perfectly clear. Head is one and a half fingers, white, long lasting, just one ring of lacing.
S- The aroma is a wonderful mix of fruits. It is primarily a tropical fruit aroma, with some citrus and a hint of fresh grass.
T- It is not quite as assertive here. Still, tropical fruits are the big flavor, with a good bit of orange juice like flavor as well. The malt is present but muted. Medium-long fruity finish.
M- Medium light body, smooth carbonation.
O- A very good beer. The aroma really makes this one worth having.

On tap at the Muddy Pig in St. Paul, MN. Served in a chalice glass.

Appearance: Color is a pale straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very hop forward aroma with lots of earthy, floral, and citrus hints. Big upfront hop presence with floral hints and earthy hints of grass and pine resin. Citrus hop hints of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, mango, pineapple, and lemon. Decent scent of malts in the background with hints of caramel, grains, biscuit, toast, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a juicy and nicely bitter hop forward taste with big earthy, citrus, and floral notes. Upfront floral and grassy hops along with some dank pine resin. Juicy citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, lemon zest, and pineapple. Bready malt background with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, cracker, toast, and yeast. A solid fresh IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily. Smooth and drying.

Overall: A pretty nice fresh hop IPA. Very hop forward but moderately bodied and pretty clean and smooth.
