The beer has a medium amber color in the glass, with half inch light beige colored head on top. The head sustains a tight ring around the glass as slowly laces down the sides.
A sweet malty fragrance jumps out at first scent, then a grass and pine fragrances take over. It all gradually blends to a sweet citrus scent, pineapple is the most dominant. The malt bursts out on the palate and lingers there for some time. At the halfway point a strong bitterness comes out, bringing earth and grass flavors, that lingers longer than the malt. The feel is very hearty, that thins out to a medium bodied texture and gradually growing to a fuller body. Wow, this beer has got to have the strongest malt flavor of an IPA I have ever had. The color is inviting, the aroma and taste are confusing, but good. The feel is hearty and plentiful, making this beer a good gateway beer to IPA's.
