On tap at Monk's Cafe in Philly, pours clear gold color with a frothy white head that faded real slowly and left very good foamy lacing coating the sides and rings as it went down.

Smells of clementine, orange peel, lemon, grapefruit, biscuit, caramel, toasted grains, sweet malt, fresh cut grass and herbs. Hoppy notes come through but don't dominate, it's very well balanced.

Tastes like it smells with grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, zesty citrus hops, piney hops, toasted grains, caramel, brown sugar, biscuit, light toffee, piney hops, faint floral hops and flowers and then some light peppery spices such as coriander and white pepper. Not the hop bomb I expected, it was a bit of a letdown.

On draft at brewery. Awesome amber gold with lacing, massive hop nose with citrus and pine, flavor was the same with good malt backbone to balance. Finishes west coast bitterness. Awesome goodness, truly a blueprint of what an IPA should be and at 6.1% it is not impossible to have more than one of these.
