Amber-copper in color, White frothy head that slides down the glass. Nice clarity.

Nose is dominated by hops. Floral and citrus.

Tastes of American hops. Loads of grapefruit and a slight apricot. Very crisp and refreshing. Great malt profile to support the amount of hop character. Toffee and caramel. Finishes with a slight resin on the back of the tongue.

Very drinkable and possibly my favorite selection from SLV

Serving type: on-tap

I was a little disapointed at first my beer appeared to be served to me flat. Although this was not the case the IPA had no idication of head. I then took a wiff. Nothing came to me. I thought maybe something was wrong with my sniffer, this is still a posibility but not ussually a problem. Despite not noticing a distintive smell or the beer holding a head the taste was much different. The beer holds true to its IPA characteristics. It was actually a good tasting beer. Good bitterness level that balanced well with the malts.
