Deep gold/amber color with an off white head. Good head retention and some nice lacing.
Aroma is peppery, spicey and floral hops with sweetness lingering just in the background. Overall, a very soft and inviting fragrance.
Taste has everything in good form, balanced yet bitter with malt notes rising to the challenge but the hop always keeps some level of control, and ends with a softly bitter finish.
Body is medium and the drinking is nice. I enjoy a heavily unbalanced IPA from time to time, but I generally prefer one that is made to be enjoyed by humans (such as this one) rather than dripped into bunny eyes.

A nice copper big with a big head. It has pine and oaky smells. You can't smell the hops in the aroma, but you can once you taste it. Great IPA for someone who isn't into IPA's and who doesn't enjoy that hoppy taste. Goes down smooth, with a pleasant aftertaste.
Serving type: on-tap
