750 ml bottle into a tulip snifter. Had 7/23/17.

Pours a cloudy orange, with a one inch head and a good amount of foamy lacing. Smells of tropical and citrus hops- grapefruit, orange, mango, guava, also yeast. Dank and grassy aroma. The taste is similar- orange, mango, grapefruit, light malt, light caramel. Somewhat earthy, not as dank as the nose. A light hop bitterness throughout. The flavor tailed off as I worked through the bottle. Smooth, well carbonated, good body.

Very drinkable and enjoyable, good aroma, a nice hop/malt balance. Both the flavor and body run out of steam, chugging to the finish line.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 750 ml bottle on September 22, 2017. Look is hazy amber with a thin head and spotty lacing. Juicy fruits, dank hops and bitter citrus. Feel is creamy and smooth.

Poured into a snifter. Darker orange, very cloudy, little foam and semi-present lacing. Slightly dank scent with citrusy background. Strong hop tang with a bitterness that hits the back of the mouth. Juicy, well balanced, really tasty, great example of the style.
