Thanks Sean or this bottle

A 1 finger thick white head turns foamy with lots of big frothy bubbles forming. Head stays around for while and leaves ome nice lacing down the glass. Body is hazy orange with some signs of carbonation. Look very good.

S Sweet citrus like grapefruit and some tropical fruits like pineapple. A subtle bready malt in the nose as well bu mostly sweet hops.

T Subtle pine bitterness upfront followed by a wave of juicy sweetness. Nice session able IPA

M Lighter on the tongue with a medium carbonation, very easy to drink this stuff all day.

O Nice sweeter/fruit forward IPA. I wouldn't mind a little more bitterness, but a very solid IPA none the less

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Jester King pint.

A- pours a light caramel color with a 2" white head. Big clumps and spider web lacing remain on the glass.

S- very pungent citrus and floral notes. Banana, grapefruit and pineapple.

T- sweet caramel, lots of juicy citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, orange and finishes with a good amount of citrus rind bitterness.

M- medium body and carbonation. Creamy but has a slickness too it as well.

O- outstanding ipa ( pun intended). Would love to have access to this regularly!
