Poured into a tulip wine glass. Nice creamy white head that disappeared quickly. Fantastic nose. Notes of citrus are perfect. Very subtle. Very blended and smooth. Lights up my tonque perfectly with small tight carbonation. Perfect level of carbonation. Taste is very sophisticated and smooth. Leaves a nice bitter finish and is not too strong, just right. Very awesome lacing with sticky bubbles "glued" to the side of the glass. No taste of alcohol, very well hidden in the hoppiness. The afterglass on this beer matches the original sip perfectly. How did they do this? This has been on my wish list for a while and I found it at a Whole Foods store. I really like this beer a lot! Will definitely be purchasing more.

This was the first IPA that I was introduced to, and it spoiled me for those that would follow. I enjoy the wash of this IPA, as there is very little bitterness in the aftertaste.

The nose of this beer makes it clear that you're dealing with a strong/full bodied IPA, and the taste is spot on.
