12 oz. bottle poured into a pint

A- Hazy golden orange with a one finger white head. Retains to a 1/4" with lots of rings of lacing.

S- Huge floral nose, with some dry citrus/grapefruit, sitting on a sweet malt backbone.

T- A surprisingly sweet start with a bang of resinous hop in the finish. An interesting, but great balance between the two.

M- Bitter, but not extremely. Fairly light body, with light carbonation. The finish is slightly dry.

O- Tasty. The hops are huge (as they should be) but they aren't overbearing.

A - beautiful looking beer, golden honey colored with a fluffy two finger head with some staying power

S - the nose is incredible. Waves and waves of fruity hops hit you up from- peach, nectarine, pineapple, a hint of lemon zest. Followed with a touch of pine

T - loads of grapefruit and many of the same citrus fruits in the nose. As the name implies there's a ton of "flowery" evervescent notes

M - average mouthfeel. Real crisp not great but not bad

I had this beer last year when visiting family back home in Utica, recently was able to get more in a trade, so I thought I would review. Bottle date 2-11-13, so pretty fresh! Wow! Right away when I started pouring this golden nectar the aroma of fresh preserves assaults my nose, is it peach? is it strawberries? is it pineapple? It's such a complex nose it could be all three! The taste is exactly how a well done IPA should taste in my book, 2Hearted comes to mind. Overall a superb brew, pick some up, you will not be disappointed...

If you love pure liquid hops this beer is for you. If you like a full balanced beer tempered by a brilliant hop equilibrium, this isn't your beer. The malt and beer flavor itself is lost in the bombardment of piney, grapefruit hop overload. This should have been named hop tea.
