P- Thanks to Colm for this brew.

A- medium orange type of color with a foamy frothy head with a patchy lacing on the pint.

S- pineapple aroma? with dry citrus hops. grassy aroma as well.

F- floral hops come through in the flavor with the pineapple and citra coming out as well.

M- hoppy and heavy bodied for an IPA. almost drinks like a barleywine.

O- not bad brew by flying dog. I would buy a sixer of it.

Thanks Kegatron for giftibg me with a 12oz bottle of this. Poured into an ipa glass, the brew appears a golden copper color with rich 3 finger frothy head that fades slow leaving patchy lace on the glass.

The aroma is bright with citra. A slightly tropical feel like pineapple blends to floral qualities before getting herbal and grassy. A touch of mineral/carbonic character is noticed towards the back.

The flavor is bitter and pithy with lots of fruity and floral hop character before transitioning to being rindy like orange/grapefruit. As it warms up it gets a little herbal but for the most part this stays within the typical fruity range that citra is noted for.

This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Nice and fresh hop flavoring with a pleasant backing of alcohol to keep things interesting. Thanks again Heath!
