Poured bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Has a kind of dark gold color that is semi-transparent, but not cloudy. Had a nice head.

Smell: Hops dominate the aroma. There's a little bit of fruit hiding in the background. It might be strawberry smell.

Taste: Very hoppy kick. The little bit of fruit in the smell didn't show itself and it's not exactly the smoothest beer. But, it is quite good.

Mouthfeel: This has a fair, textured body without being thick or anything.

Drinkability: Not my favorite IPA, but it is very good.
