12oz brown bottle with a very cool label ... it's a map of the world entwined with hop vines...

Appearance: Hazy orange/copper beer with a patchy cream off-white foam head that clings to the sides of the glass.

Smell: Very pronounced grapefruit hop aromas, spicy with background sweet malts and a faint bready grain aroma.

Taste: Whoa! This is one good, very clean, drinkable awesome IPA! Mouthfeel is ultra-smooth and creamy with a malty thick full-body. The initial taste is an absolute hop assualt on the palate! A spicy, stinging and salty plethora of citric nuances literally overwhelm the senses. Earth, leaf and grass flavours pull-thru, then are followed by an alcohol presence and spiciness. The malt in this beer is definately present but gets its ass fiercly kicked by the hops. Malt includes some toasted, slightly bready and light honey flavours with an even malt sweetness. It hardly balances the beer, but does keep it somewhat control. Beer finishes with residual hop spice and malt sweetness, which tends to linger for some time.

Notes: This is a very hyped-up beer, and it should be as it is an absolutely marvelous beer for all the hop-heads out there... For what it is, it's crafted to near perfection. A "Wow!" beer for sure...As close to '5's' all around for me...I just can't bring myself to score a, '5' for ANY beer...seems like the only place you'll find 'that' beer is heaven...6.5 % abv....

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, apricot and pine notes with some light malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice dominant hop presence giving it the nice citrusy, and grapefruit character. Piney hop notes come in with a light caramel malt sweetness in the end.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice solid overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

A – This beer had a slightly dark amber color and poured clear (no cloudiness). It poured about 2 fingers of foam that diminished by half in a few minutes but remain for a fair of time.
S – Smell was fruity and malty.
T – Taste is strong hops with a slight aftertaste. Smooth.
M – beer has fine carbonation and body.

Golden color with a dense off white head. The aroma is big and citrusy that screams off the wall hops. The taste is citrus hops all over the tongue with enough malt to give it depth. I say that is well-balanced for an IPA. The mouthfeel is smooth and crisp with a dry finish.
