Awesome unique nose, with plenty of tropical fruit, some nuttiness, and doughy notes. Appearance is dark gold, slight haze, fine lace. Mouthfeel is juicy, ends dry. Thick and complex and not just another IPA. Thanks Wally. Anne likes it.

Whoop! got me a few bottles finally. Big hops yes, moderate body balances such hop oppression. Nose is light. Sturdy. Sparse lacing left behind from this quick drinker.

500 ml bottle, born on date of 050316. Served in a Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a mostly clear gold color with a couple inch off-white head that stayed around for a really long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is really nice, the brew smells mostly like pine and citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, peaches) hops, along with some bready malt. As soon as I poured this into the glass, the aroma was noticeable right away. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, it’s mainly pine and citrusy (tropical fruit, citrus peel, grapefruit) hops with a bit of bready maltiness. With the aroma I thought the tropical fruit/citrusy hops stood out more, but it seemed to me that there was more balance between the pine and tropical fruit/citrusy flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot, I’d certainly like to try it again in the future. $6.99 a bottle.

On tap at the source as part of ECBT. Smallish pour to pace myself. Attractive clear, filtered IPA with predominantly golden notes. Aroma is reminiscent of almost an imperial IPA. Plenty of hops with pine and floral qualities. Taste is fresh and clean. Remarkably easy to drink with a pleasant bitterness offset by a malty sweet balance. Almost a grassy feel mid sip. Very professional effort. Expectations were high and this meets them with no issue. Coming away impressed.
