Serving type: 12 oz into a shaker pint.

Pours a clear honey orange color. Smells of honey, slight pine, nice fruit, massive floral hoppy goodness, pineapple smells too! Taste reflects the smell, initial piney bitterness leads into a floral hop flavor and sweetness, finishes dry with a nice hop bitterness linger. Not tasting much of the fruit flavor that I smelled. Mouthfeel is perfect, semi-oily, moderately carbonated. The thicker feel fits with the heavier pine and floral flavors. Overall, this is (in my opinion) the perfect session IPA. Tastes, smells, feel like a higher ABV IPA while remaining perfect sessionable.
