a: A hazy orange honey color. Nice beige colored head and good lacing.

s: I could smell this as I poured it...delightfully fragrant with hops and malt. Very smooth and seductive.

t: A hoppy, fruity, malty brew...all at once. Buttery then bitter finish.

mf: For me, a fuller mouth feel but smooth and drinkable.

o: Extremely balanced. An absolute delight.

This is just a great IPA.
I drank right from the bottle...so cant comment on look.
Smell - straight forward
T=outstanding - just right with sweet/bitter/citrus combo
F=very pleasant carbonation - round, full mouth feel.

founders as this one dialed in!
