Fresh sour citrus and hop smell that blends into a beautiful tropical aroma. Clean orang yellow body with light foamy head. Earthy dry hop taste with notes grapefruit, tangerine and slight lemon. Carbonated, dry, and crisp on the palate. Its nice.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 5/17/13. Aromas of mango, kiwi, passion fruit, papaya, pine, wild flowers, slight dust, and slight caramel. Clear orange-gold with a fading, white head. Dry, earthy, floral, clay-like, and biscuity. Light-medium body, good carbonation, smooth and very drinkable, finishing with lingering tropical fruit flavors. 9/13/13. Floral fragrance, piney, and sharp citrusy aromas. Slightly hazy orange with a mostly diminishing, bubbly white head. Dry, a little fruity, and quite bitter. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation, a little yeasty in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 A 5.17.13 edition thoroughly enjoyed on 5/3/13. Pours golden with a fluffy one finger head and perfect clarity. Beautiful aroma of floral grapefruit, pine, lemon zest, grass, wow. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavor is grassy pine and sweet citurs. Lighter flavor and mouthfeel than I expect from a top double but incredibly easy drinking. Nice beer for sure, and so fresh!

5-17-13 Edition. I had one previously but did not rate.
Pours hold with lots of carbonation a pillowy white head and great floral citrus hoppy aroma. So much hops. Its like eating a pineapple. Tons of big citrus and floral flavors. Fresh as it can possibly be. Medium bodied caramel malt backbone, but you will barely be able to tell with all the hoppy madness. Brilliantly hides the high ABV, cannot tell its that strong at all. This is one of the best IPA’s I’ve had hands down. Right up there is Three Floyd’s dreadnaught.
