A - Orange dirty russet hue with a 2 finger fluffy head that reduces to a thin cap, but comes right back with a gentle swirl. Lots of lace is left down the side of my pint glass.
S - Citrus, pine, pepper, and OFF brand bug-spray. That sounds like a bad thing, but that bug spray smell really brings back memories of camping as a kid. So I like it. This is really leafy and a bit spicy in it's hop profile.
T - Sweet Gran's biscuit malt backbone with overtones of mandarin orange, tangerine, and peach. A wonderfully fruity and citrusy hop flavor.
M - Moderate carbonation, perfect balance between sweet, bitter, and dry. Nothing spectacular, but feels good in the mouth.
D - Extremely quenching and balanced. This is a great example of what an IPA should be...extremely balance, while still focusing on citric piney hops. Outstandingly drinkable. Perhaps THE most drinkable IPAs IMHO (I have a hard time sessioning IPAs due to the bitterness...I love them for that bitter flavor, but I usually can't bring myself to drink three or four of them...but I could drink a sixer of this!)
