look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours amber with a foamy, khaki head. Good head retention and lacing. Citrus and wonderful pine hop notes for an aroma. Pine and resin hop notes with a helping of malt form a bitter and sweet taste. Well balanced. Mouth feel is full bodied. It feels a bit like a double IPA. Overall, a great IPA. Well balanced and full bodied.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Aroma is grapefuit, lemon, orange, tangerine, blackberry, raspberry, toasted bread, untoasted bread, pine cones, pine, pineapple, peach, mango, and passion fruit. I taste these in equal ratios, but with slightly more grapefuit than tangerine, and then taking each one listed down by 8.5% compared to the previous one listed.
Taste: biscuit, hops, grapefuit, blackberry, pineapple, sticky pine, passion fruit, and peach in a descending order, with each taste representing 55% of the strength of the taste listed to it prior.
Feel: Smooth, balanced, and sticky, with it being about 65% smooth to about 35% balanced. The stickiness I deem independent of the other two, and thus not subtracting from either smooth or balanced.
Look: Orange, haze, copper. More copper than orange, but only by 1.5 fold.
Overall: Rating is a 4.33234, but I rounded to a 4.25 because, for whatever reason, beer advocate doesn't offer incremental scores.

APPEARANCE: A slightly hazy amber orange. Finger+ of off white foamy head that lingers a while. Mild lacing down the glass, mild bubbles rising.
AROMA: Definitely citrus. Orange/tangerine and grapefruit. A touch of pine. Some hoppy beers I have a harder time perceiving the malt, and this is one of them.
TASTE: I get more of a slight breadiness in the flavor from the malt. This is more about that nice citrus/grapefruit and plenty of tangerine-like quality. Even some earthy and lemon qualities.
FEEL: Carbonation is mild. Medium thin body and soft on the palate. Slight building bitterness with a dry finish.
OVERALL: Very nice and mellow IPA with great citrus flavors.

Fresh on tap. Great beer and so much hoppier tap than out of the bottle.

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

Look - Pours out amber with little to no head.
Smell - The fruity aroma is quite pleasant - very peachy
Taste - A mixture of peach, grapefruit, and pine - the pine lingers on the palate, slightly sweet, but not too much.
Feel - Smooth and balanced

This is an extremely pleasant beer, well balanced. The fruit is noticeable, but not overpowering, the pine and bitterness is also present like a good IPA should be, but not overpowering.
This is probably my favorite beer so far that I have tried in terms of mouth feel and overall balance.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/20/2016. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, lemon/orange zest, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, lemon/orange zest, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, lemon/orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness that lightly increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
