look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
