This ipa pours a hazy brownish amber color with a nice cream colored head that gives way to a thick off white film and lacing. The aroma is very hoppy with lots of resin and grassy notes. There is grapefruit and a little malt as well. The mouthfeel is very smooth with just the slightest coating. The flavor is very hop forward and refreshing. All the notes ffound in the nose make themselves present in the taste. This is a solid ipa; not the greatest, but damn good. (468 characters)

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale orange, gold, about 1 finger white head.

Smell - Pungent pine, resin, grapefruit and slight pineapple.

Taste - Flavor of pine, grapefruit, good balance between bitter and tart. Slight ground pepper spiciness. Light malts with a subtle roastiness, dried out piny bitterness at the end that lingers as the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall - Good beer. With this brewed year round you can't go wrong trying it. Lots of hoppy character that is sure to grab your attention right off the bat. (578 characters)
