Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottled 140221.

Nice chilled haze on a golden body with a solid 3-4 fingers of foam; sticky lacing clings. Sticky and sweet hops in the aroma. Flavor is nice, pineapple, tropical fruit, touch of papaya, very juicy. Clean and refreshing, a very tasty IPA!

Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with a frothy cream head that leaves sticky lacing as it slowly dissipates.

Pine, resin, floral hops, tangerine, pineapple,and mango accompany slightly sweet caramel malt to form the aroma.

Flavor reveals a toasted, slightly sweet caramel malt backbone, with underpinnings of tart lime, tangerine, mango, and grapefruit pith adding complexity. The finish is earthy, bready, and moderately bitter. Floral notes emerge late.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with light alcohol warmth and a slightly astringent, lingering finish.

Good hop complexity, with just a little more bitterness than I'd prefer, though I do like the fact that malt has a noted presence.

Honey orange color, about a finger of white foam, great lacing. Apricots, melon, grapefruit, touch of biscuit and orange peel in the nose. Floral hop notes balanced with great malt character, great bitter finish.

Best IPA I have tasted yet. I will be honest I am not into appearance or smell. I am into the taste of IPAs and beer in general. The taste is amazing in this IPA. I also visited the brewery and had it on draft. Draft was delicious as well but the bottle was just as good. Almost tastes likes double IPA. I would recommend this to any IPA lover...Expensive but worth it.
