Pours a nice copper with a frothy off white head - good retention.

Smells of pine, citrus, nutty & floral notes - very nice.

Hits hard with a resinous pine followed by citrus lemon middle. Ending with malty, nutty notes. Finishes crisp and dry.

This is an excellent IPA that will challenge your mouth and rip it raw if you are not prepared.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle 05/13/12

A: Pours an opaque golden orange with a 2 finger fluffy white head. Only a little visible carbonation through this cloudy beer.

S: A lot of hop upon initial sniff. Both a dry hopped floral and some citrusy fruit.

T: Has some floral hops right off the bat. Long-lasting hop bitterness. A great IPA for a hop head.

M: A little lighter on the palatte than I was expecting, possibly due to a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall an IPA that holds nothing back. Keeps a hop forward taste from start to finish. Surprising that its only 65 IBU.
