Served out of the bottle into a traditional pint glass.
Appearance-golden small amount of carbonation with a 1/2 inch head, head is sticking to glass.
Smell-citrus and pine hops, not smelling any malt or alcohol.
Taste-notes of pine and grapefruit. I can also taste malt with a little alcohol on the finish. Very smooth overall though.
Mouthfeel-nice, crisp, very drinkable.
Overall-Solid IPA. Some IPA's really bite and sometimes I like that, this is an IPA however that you could drink several of very easily if you chose to do so. It is satisifies the hopheads but is also very well balanced.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a thick white head. Awesome lacing.

The aroma smacks you in the face with piney citrusy hops. There is also some earthiness along with caramel.

The flavor is pine and grapefruit but giving way to some caramel. There is a certain earthy flavor present as well. Strong bitterness throughout leading to a drying finish. Mouthfeel is good for the style.

Overall this is one of my favorite IPA's. It is extremely smooth and each sip leaves you wanting more. It would be easy to down several of these in a sitting.
