An American IPA with almost a little bit of a Belgian touch. A complex yeast, malt, hops and citrus scent and flavor permeate through the nose and mouth.

Appearance is a slightly murky, yet glowing amber. Not much of a head, but very smooth in appearance, almost milky.

Smell as mentioned is phenomenal. I spent 3 minutes sniffing the empty can I poured out of before tasting it.

Taste is slightly sweet and citrusy, a nice snappy and spicy hops kick, a robust amber malt body and some complexity coming off of a combination of all these elements. Interestingly with such a strong character of flavor, this doesn't linger bitterly on the pallette, but finishes off smooth and clean, somewhat dry.

Mouthfeel is fantastic. Very smooth and silky, but with nicely balanced carbonation.

An incredible beer, very flavorful, nice character and easily drinkable, though its sophistication asks of you to nurse it and savor it.
