Hazy golden pour with thin, clingy white head - looks great. Nose is floral and earthy, not to my liking. Flavor is some malt and not much bitterness for an IPA with same earthyness. Best part is the appearance, no need to drink.

bottle poured into IPA glass.

L - pours a frothy offwhite head, burnt orange colour, clear.

S - citrus fruits dominate, with some caramel and a hint of pine

T - Initially sweet and sour citrus like flavours (grapefruit), followed by a resepctable resin bitterness halfway through. The finish has earthy malts, moderate bitterness, and lingers.

F - low carbonation, light bodied, dry texture, soft bodied.

O - reasonable IPA - not too bitter. More like a pale ale.
