Pours a golden straw color with one finger white head and leaves a streaky lace.

Aroma is very robust and citrusy. The assertive hops lure me in for a sip.

Taste is outstanding! A bold citrus and pine hop character hit the tongue right away as my mouth becomes an ocean of flavor. The bitterness gradually mellows out leaving a smooth, biscutiy malt character that balances the flavor nicely. Hops linger around for a while, giving you a little extra jolt in the aftertaste.

Medium-bodied and generous amount of carbonation making the flavors slightly more assertive. Dry finish leaves me craving another sip.

Overall, this is an exception IPA. Tons of flavors which are in perfect harmony. Very refreshing and a feast for hop lovers.
