Bottle into tulip

A- Slightly hazy dark orange pour with a three finger soapy, sticky off white head. Lacing is excellent as it recedes to a thin cap.

S- Strawberries and grapefruit with a sweet malt profile. Somewhat piney this probably isn't the freshest of bottles. There is a touch of caramel.

T- Bitter floral hops with a bit of juicy citrus (mostly oranges) there is a bitter lemon zest than a sweet malt backing. Not over the top but still very good.

M- Thin the medium bodied, good carbonation with a lingering finish.

O- I wish this was a fresher bottle, I really did my best checking dates but I wasn't able to figure out the dating system for Flying Dog so I took a chance. Not bad at all though.

Into a pint glass:

A: slightly hazy amber colored body with a fairly large white lumpy head that slowly dissipates into a small lightly foamy lacing

S: rich fruity and extremely sweet maltiness. Some caramel was slightly noticed as well.

T: centered around the normal bitter hops of an IPA but also had a very good malty backbone.

M: light to medium, smooth, sessionable, bitter aftertaste, no finish

O: this is an extremely well balanced IPA that I would come back to.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours slightly hazy amber with a massive whipped-cream-like thick off-white head, that slowly dissipates into pretty nice lacings.

S: Rich fruityness from the floral hops; oranges, peaches, grapefruits and some red apples. Rich malt, caramell. Sweet.

T: Very nice malty backbone, sweet and bisquity. Rich bitter hops complements the floral with oranges and grapefruits toghether with pine(-apple). Complex.

M: Long bitter aftertaste that also carries the fruityness. Body is on the fuller side, while carboantion is held back.

O: A well balanced beer; the American hops are very obvious but still held back and further more in fantastic balance with the malt. Probably this is a bit from how the style is described, but in my book; rewrite the description for the style!
