This is a world class beer ! It comes down to one word "Quality"

Appearance- An amber color. The head stuck around, about two inche leaving lots of nice lacing.

Smell: Piney, scent, and the malts. Yes - piney, citrus and some malt.

Taste- The flavor is out of thi world! It's a perfect balance of malt and piney some floral/citrus. IT is 50% malts with 50% bitter. It is balance ! I do not like bitter beers but the bitterness is actually , really good. People who do not like bitter beers, this is really a different kind of bitter. It compliments the malts so greatly!

Mouthfeel- The mouthfeel is medium and awesome.

Overall- An awesome beer ! Tasting this one is euphoric all the way. A must for those with ipa taste! The price is reasonable for this beer in my area.
