look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy dark gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains strong fruity citrus and floral hops along with caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong fruity citrus flavor. Then a strong grassy hops bitterness quickly follows. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, excellent representation of style, this is a very good IPA to drink for a long time.

Good bar-pour head. Settles to a thin layer of bubbles. Leaves some patchy, blanketing lace. Very cloudy. Gold color with a tinge of green.

Attractive spruce and grapefruit aromas. Smells fresh and prickly.

Starts off with a wonderful pale malt base. The strong pepper hop kicks in at the swallow. The grapefruit even comes through in the taste. Long, long bitter aftertaste. Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Overall, this is a very bitter beer.

From 10/02/14 Notes. 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Picked up at the brewery 2 weeks ago.

Pours a hazy orange-amber color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Oranges, citrus hops, tropical fruits, juicy fruity malts, and light pine hops. Taste is very good, lightly bitter Medium body and low carbonation, easy to drink.

Overall tihs is really good; I would put this ahead of Sunshower as my favorite IPA from them, and would put it up there with their New England Red and Lineage Rye as one of their best beers so far. Lots of tropical and citrus notes and easy to drink, would buy this all the time if I could.
