Beer pours a light copper, no haze, bright white head. Rings of lacing as beer is imbibed. Very pleasing appearance.
Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine. Smells like an edible cleaning agent, but not in a bad way.
Taste is dominated by a very bitter hop presence, notes of juniper and orange peel, almost reminiscent of gin. Clean flavor profile, could use a bit more malt backbone.
Mouthfeel and drinkability both get high marks.
Overall another solid offering in an ocean of American IPA's. Would probably be a remarkably good beer if there weren't so many clones on the market.
