12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Nose is a beautiful blend of citrus, malt, and hops. Orange, blood orange, jackfruit - a pungent, full-bodied, well balanced nose. Pours a clear orange-amber with a half finger head that gradually recedes to leave respectable lacing. The palate follows the nose. Bitter hops are cut with a sweet, savory undertone. Prominent citrus fruits, including the same orange, blood orange, and jackfruit of the nose, with a hit of kumquat (sans the tangy aftertaste). The prominent malt body lends an excellent depth to the beer, and provides an appropriately sweet counterpoint to the strong hop presence. Mouthfeel is thicker than many IPAs, which lends this beer a unique quality among its style that works brilliantly. Overall, a world-class beer, and arguably the best offering from Great Lakes (blackout stout held that place previously in my book, but it's been dethroned).

Meh. Glad I got to finally try this, but I don't think it really lived up to the hype for me. Very okay and would probably have again, but won't actively seek this out.
