A gorgeous clear bright golden orange which upon closer inspection show yeast particles suspended in it with a inch thick white foamy head. Grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, apple, guava, and a slight piney smell, like a bouquet of tropical and citrus fruit. Taste is funky dank pine, a cracker-y bread malt, and a nice moderate mouth feel with a good amount of bitter. The taste washes over your tongue and holds on for a good amount of time after you gulped it down. There are some citrus and tropical fruit notes as well as a general smoothness also.

bottle into tulip

appearance: cloudy golden orange, slight 1 finger head

smell: lots of citrus, grapefruit, fruity tropical notes, guava, sweet malts, some pine, lemon zest, coriander. The smell on this is truly amazing.

taste: Follows the nose, although just a tad more held back. Lot's of fruity citrus/grapefruit notes off the bat, great floral hop taste, it is complimented by just the right amount of dank piney bitterness to create a very well balanced, and more importantly, juicy flavor packed IPA. Not a hop bomb, but enough hops to satisfy hopheads like myself. The bitterness doesn't linger for too long, not completely destroying your palate. The aftertaste is very refreshing.

mouthfeel: medium to high carbonation, thick bodied for a single IPA

overall: I've been enjoying all of Short's releases this year, most have been spot on, this is no exception. To me this tastes a lot like the Stone IPA, same citrus and grapefruit dominant notes with lots of floral hop action and a sweet malt backbone. Wish I could find this again but i'll have to wait until they hopefully release this sometime in the future. This is a damn refreshing IPA that exceeded my already high expectiations.

I give it a higher score than the average of the categories because the delicious taste lingers on. An outstanding IPA that only drawback is that it competes against HumaLupa. Buy this one, drink it and enjoy. I think the moderators here have to adjust their IBU of 159.... This beer is high, but not that high. I'll drink again
