Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle, bottled on 1/28/13. The head was the color of a manilla folder and the body was a bright apricot. Moderate lace.

The smell was earthy and flowery hops. Citrus.

The taste was a bit creamy and sweat. A little peppery bite. Spicy and interesting.

The mouthfeel was medium in body. Moderate carbonation. Overall solid.

From notes. Poured into a tulip glass: thick white, foamy head over a light cloudy, amber liquid. Smells amazing. A perfect balance of hoppy goodness and sweet malts. Exactly how an IPA should smell. Equivalent to Pliny in that regard. Tastes wonderful. Perfect citrus hops; little to no pine, which I like. Very good balance of alcohol spice, hops, and malt that resulted in a very delightful and drinkable beer. Mouthfeel as balanced, smooth, and a bit sticky; sweet and bitter as it should be. Overall, it was a bit pricy but besides that a very good beverage that was wonderfully enjoyable to consume.
