A - Cloudy honey color. Thick head that dissipates fast. Leaves a nice lacing though
S - Nice subtle hop aroma. Slight spice smell but this is most likely from the hops
T - WOW. Not what I was expecting. This is not overly hoppy. It is most of the most balances IPA I have ever tried. First taste is of a grainy malt flavor. Then quickly comes in the hops. The have a first intial bitter bite but that goes away quickly and you can taste the flavor. The hops are kind of a spicy/citrus blend. There is almost a taste of what I think might be saaz hops but other wise it tastes really good.
M - medium to medium low carbonation
D - decently drinkable
Serving type: bottle
