Appearance is slightly hazy orange with a tight off-white head and decent lacing throughout. Aroma has that familiar American IPA nose of moderate piney and citrusy hops along with a restrained grainy and graham cracker-like maltiness in the background. Flavor is bursting with moderate American hops right up front with a decent malt backbone to carry the hops. Flavors of peach, apricot, and fresh grains support moderate to moderately high hop bitternes. Mouthfeel is medium but this beer has a fairly harsh aftertaste from all the hops as I near the bottom of my glass. I prefer a more balanced IPA but this beer will be liked if not loved by all you hopheads out there.
