Purchased as part of a mixed 6 Pack at Wilbur's in Ft Collins.
Pours from 12oz bottle a clear medium gold with a good head of foam that shrinks to a fine broken layer and it has some lacing.
The smell is strong on the citrus(grapefruit) and is quite inviting.
The taste is all hops up front. Lots of grapefruit with and some floral with a little grassy and in the background, I get a decent malty profile that helps give this IPA some balance. Very drinkable. I could easily see myself enjoying another bottle or 2. ;^)
The mouthfeel is nice and smooth and the carbo is medium. It's not an over the top type of IPA but it's a solid example of the style and it would be a regular of mine if it was available locally. Good stuff.
Very hoppy nose is quite refreshing. Dark yellow in color with a nice white head that hangs on the glass. Not really a lot of hip taste but definitely some bitterness bite. Beer store owner was discounting the variety pack because it has been on the shelf awhile. He said the IPA lost some of its flavor. To me the mellowness makes it more enjoyable for a non hop lover

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Light yellow colour with nice head on top which leaves beautiful lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has citrus fruits, grapefruit and lemon, floral notes too. Taste is bitter with grapefruit and citrus hops, slight sweetness tries to come through but is washed away by the grapefruit. Ends with dry bitter hop punch, lingers for a good while. Medium body and medium carbonation. mariuspoenari (2999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2017
Semi-hazy orange pour with a thin off-white head. Very old - 9 months at least. Notes of caramel, perfumey hops, overripe passion fruit, floral hops, citrus. Not too bitter, quite perfumey and caramel-forward, probably due to the age. I might need to revisit this beer.
