Poured into a tulip glass, best before August. Pours a hazy bright orange, with a wonderful 2 inch white head that leaves behind excellent lacing. Smell is tangerine, pineapple, mango, cut grass, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is all of that, very well balanced, loads of citrus upfront, with a piney grapefruit finish. Body is medium, plenty of life, not dry, and easy sipping. This is one of the finest IPAs going.
