Commercial Description

"Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry-hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter."

    The beer pours a hazy orange. The aroma is of orange citrus with a slight hop note. The taste is much like the aroma citrus filled with a slight hoppy after taste. Not a bad ipa but not the worst either. I would of like it a little bit more if their was more of a hoppy taste and less of sweet taste.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    The pour was a murky dark amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that reduced to a few puddles and a large collar of residue which created some excellent sheets of lace.

    The aroma was of a floral hop, a toasted grain malt and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, apricot and a good dose of citrus (lemon and grapefruit).

    The taste was a light bitter sweet and a bit acidic with a nice malty feel and had notes of caramel throughout, then progressed into this nice hoppy flavor, that had just a tad of sweetness to it with notes of apricot and citrus at the end. The flavor hung around for what seemed like forever, which just increased the pleasure of the tasting experience.

    Mouthfeel was right under medium in body with an extremely dry texture and a moderate carbonation.

    Overall all I have to say about this brew is: "Now that’s an IPA"...

    A truly exceptional IPA.

    The aroma is full of wonderful hops, malt, and soft alcohol.

    Pours gorgeous, clear golden. Nice white head.

    A horribly balanced IPA, the malt is fantastic and prominent enough to support the rather large hop bill.

    Beer goes down smooth as hell, with the softest presence of must that brings it all together.
