UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 One of my favorite IPAs. I canít even begin to describe how good this smells. The earthy floral smell just pops out form this bottle. And the taste is similarly good. Very smooth, slightly dry. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden orange with large white head that fades a bit. Nose is slightly herbal, some citrus, pine, sweeter malts, slightly perfumey. Flavor is hoppy, but with an underlying cotton candy-like sweetness. The bottles I have had have been varied, but Iíd say itís been a bit on the sweeter side for my palate more often than not.

Dark orange coloured and unclear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Heavy hoppy aroma, harmonic, not so much citrus, just herbal hops. Heavy flavor, real heavy and long duration, starts moderate sweet and finish heavy bitter with a dry, dry, dry finish. Soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy light copper with cream foamy head and decent lacing. Smells a little passion fruity, a little biscuity, lightly piney, and pretty fresh. Tastes malty right off, then going into some dry tingling on the palate and finishing dry. More dry than bitter but does have a bit of malt clinging in with the hop finish. Disappointed, Iíd heard this was great, but Iím not feeling it. Perhaps on tap...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium to bigger vast off white head on top of a deep hazy and darker orange colored beer.
Looks nice and the (light) hoppy smell hits the nose immediately.
Smell is hoppy with a belgian yeasty (ale) touch to it. Fruity, floral and †kind of fresh.
The beer has a very fine mouthfeel with a nice crispy and hoppy touch.
There is some hops and the citrus fruit in the taste, light yeasty and itís fruit, nice medium bitter, light malty and spicy. Hints of herbs, cream and some light sweetness.
Good medium bitter herby aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a creamy to almost oily texture.
Nice brew and not too bitter but still hoppy, tasty and very well balanced!
