A: IPA amber coloring with a fluffy one finger head with solid retention and moderate sticky lacing. Visible carbonation.

S: Floral and bitter hop aromas, with a sweet malt backbone. Not much citrus here (can't detect the citra).

T: Floral and bitter like the nose, but with some light citrus spikes that serve to cut the bitterness well. A nice bready, grassy, hop finish. A stronger, more floral version of the the SN Pale Ale. Very good session IPA.

M: The feel is great. Wonderfully drinkable, yet coating and warming.

Nice 2 finger white head good retention rust in color with some amber to it.

Pine and some citrus hops with a mild malty backbone

Pretty well balanced up front it's not a hop bomb but they're definitey there. Pretty piny kinda earthy tones not really getting the citrus. Think amber malts

Little lighter than medium bodied, medium carb. Crisp finishes with the hops that lingers around when it's gone

Overall it's a solid pretty well balanced ipa that you can get anytime.
