Nice clear bright orange with a fluffy cap of slightly fizzy white coloring, with a caramel tone.

Smells super fresh and citrus hoppy, lots of oranges.

Taste a good balance between lightly toasted, crackerish malts and and those citrus hops. It's pretty dry as well and has a piney bitterness. Good feel, real slick and smooth with a nice amount of soft and tingly-fluffy carbonation.

Good IPA worthy of the SN brewing company.
