Color is semi clear, dark goldish bronze color with a thin off-white cap, lacing in thin webby stings.
Aroma is quite fruity and floral with hops, mildly so, determined yet subtle with malty fruitiness closing in on some melon and apple.
Taste is fruity with apply notions and pear, floral herbs much like a tea are fairly dominant. Bittering is in check by alot due to the overwhelming amount of sweetness that actually isn't overwhelming. This has a unique balance, but the flavors stay fruity throughout.
Feel is a solid medium body, creamy and smooth and lightly crisp with just the right amount of bite. Yummifingly drinkable stuff.

Picked up a 12oz bottele of this today at SouthBay Drugs and Liquor.

Surprisingly, this is the first time I'm tasting this beer. It's easily available here and I've been busy trading for other beers but now I want to try some of the locally available beers.

"Ask the man for Boont" under the cap.

Pours a fiery copper color with a rocky, massive, head that almost overflowed. Excellent retention with some soapy lacing.

Wonderful notes of citrus fruits. Orange and grapefruit zest, fleshy pink grapefruit too, lemon, lightly toasted malts, and hints of caramel. There's also a good dose of pine but I'm mostly detecting some sweet and juicy citrus hops. A bit of crackers and dry biscuit. Good balance between the hops and malts, even the malts get a little more intense as the beer settles. Unfortunately, as the beer sits the hops become less intense.

Bitter orange and grapefruit upfront with bitter and dry toast following next. Dry and resiny pine finish. Dry and what tastes like Centennial hops in the finish, kind of metallic and spicy. Flowery bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit of burnt caramel flavor in the end.

Medium bodied and fairly easy to drink considering the 7% alc. Good IPA, solid, and wouldn't mind having again.

Poured from bottle into standard pint.

A - Bright orange in color with not much carbonation showing in the body. Solid one finger head that is thick and soapy.

S - Beautiful, citric hops. Sweet and hoppy.

T - Citrus and slightly piney hops. Nice IPA.

M - Medium bodied. Carbonation could use a little boost, but not bad.

D - Good everyday beer.

First time trying this brew that I ahve seen around a lot. Very very good, hoppy brew. Has a little darker color than expected, but a good color. Smell is very hoppy as is the initial taste. Has a strong hop presence that stays with you. The smooth hoppy after taste is very good.

Dark amber color, darker than many other IPAs. Strong hops smell, more than some other IPAs. Strong hops taste that goes even further than the hops smell, good citrus taste with a strong hops finish. Medium, good carbonation, a littler bittering left afterward

This is a hop lover's IPA, not a DIPA obviously but a strong hop flavor for just an IPA, not sure that the "zing" and sharpness of the finish allows you to drink several of these, but the complex beer requires leisurely pace anyway.
