A: A slightly haze copper ale, showing evidence that it's an unfiltered, dry hopped beer with some fine hops particals.
S: A strong citrus hops aroma with medium pineapple, some pine and a citrus peel. There is a moderate malt sweetness with some caramel character. A moderate grassy dry hopped aroma.
T: An aggressive hops bitterness with a strong citrus hops flavor. The hops are lemon, citrus, some pine and a little lemongrass-like. There is a little malt sweetness, just enough to provide support for the large hops bill. The balance is very bitter but it remains smooth. The finish is pretty dry with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied with a medium-strong level of carbonation and a little bit of alcohol warmth. A light bit of creaminess as well.
O: A well balanced, bitter IPA showcasing a lot of American citrus hops. This beer is smooth while having a very strong hops bitterness and flavor.
Serving type: can
