A: hazy gold liquid... huge sudsy off-white head - 1/4" cap till end, good bit of lace (even on a less-than-beer-clean glass.... unfiltered and just lovely

S: resiny hops - lots of hops.... toasted cereal/grain... baked pineapple, grapefruit, tropical undertones, honey, crust of fresh-baked bread.... bold and beautiful, absolutely mouth-watering.... a scent I dream of

T: super-smooth blend of pale malt and hops up front, finishing with a floral, mellow citrus bitterness and alcohol warmth.... shortbread late in aftertaste.... the taste doesn't explode quite as much as the aromas suggest.... bold and refined, nonetheless

M: cottony-soft and feathery-light - like drinking a liquid wool blanket... citrus oil, silky-nectary... wow! perfect, ideal

O: this is the kind of IPA I long for.... reminds me a bit of Victory Hop Wallop (with less alcohol) or maybe Union Jack... stellar and quaffable

Amber orange color with a thick bright and thick head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma of grapefruit, caramel and toasted malts, just a bit of pine, oranges, some mango, sweet flowers and bread. It was initially very present and then faded away.
Nice bitter flavor, its 69 IBUs are definitely felt, not enough to make me sneeze though. Notes of grapefruit, American yeast, pepper, salt, caramel and toasted malts, pine and mango. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, slightly acid. Alcohol of 6.5% abv is well hidden.
Good and solid IPA. I liked the profile of this brew, pleasant citrus acidity with a bold bitterness, and still with high drinkability and well balanced. Though, it did not take any “wow” from me, well it is a balance brew.
