Dry fruity hop aroma.Amber gold colored body. A touch of pine in the nose too. Light fruity bitterness Wet and dry finish. Hint of malt sweetness. Crisp and filling. Indescribable at times. Amazing.

First thing I noticed was the smell of citrus, I personally love it. when poured it pours a fluffy white head and is kind of a orange/amber color. At first I was a little apprehensive because of lesser "pale ales", but i was quickly proven wrong. The hops definitely make themselves know and have somewhat of an overpowering presence but at the same time it is still delicious. It's not as smooth or drinkable as other beers but is definitely worth a shot and is a good first IPA for anyone who has not tried an IPA.
