look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - poured from a 12oz bottle. Clear orange body beneath a foamy 2-finger white head that retains well and leaves good lacing. Moderate amount of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom

S - Not overly powerful in the nose but what is there smells nice. Citrus and pine hop presence with a toffee maltiness. Floral without being overly sweet in the nose

T&M - Moderate carbonation keeps mouthfeel smooth with just a touch of dryness. Citrus hops hit me first with a nice orange zest followed quickly by earthiness and some very light pine. A bit of toffee sweetness in the swallow. Mild hop bitterness lingers for quite a while but never becomes stale. I really enjoy the meld between citrus and pine hops with the earthy quality. Very drinkable

O - I enjoyed this very much and would certainly not hesitate to make this a daily beer. Great flavors and structure. Complex enough to be interesting all the way through the glass

Served in a pint. A bit old, best by 5/27/13.

A -Nice frothy off-white head with a transparent caramel hue. Impressive retention leaving great lacing.

S - Sweet toffee, hops and a slight malt presence.

T - Lots of malt and earthy tones hit me strongly. Light hop bitterness, although leaving much to be desired, although i can only suspect that the beer's age is the culprit. Toffee is apparent. Bitterness brings out the fruit, mostly on the finish: grapefruit, pineapple....perhaps some melon.

M - Medium body with fair carbonation. Not a typical IPA, although suited well for my taste.

O - I suspect this beer is amazing when fresh. For what I was able to get my hands on, I am glad to have five more.
