A: It pours a light gold color, with a nice one - finger head that holds for a short time. Very active carbonation.

S: The aroma of hops and more hops. There's a citrus note, and a pine twist, but hops are the defining factor here.

T: Again, this beer is an all out hop driven assault on the senses. There's a grapefruit note. I pick up a peppery spice on the finish, and the relatively high ABV makes its presence known, but again....fresh hops.

F: A lighter, very smooth feel combine with pleasant carbonation to really create an enjoyable experience.

O: A fantastic, strong IPA for those of us who love the hop. Definitely a great beer. Cheers!!!

Absolutely solid IPA. Dense hoppyness with a hint of honey.
