Consumed within 30 minutes of getting the growler filled.

A: Dark yellow / pale orange color. Very slight haze. No sediment. Some off-white / very-light orange colored head.

S: Peach, bready yeasty malt, orange, and grapefruit.

T: Very similar to the scents, but with a slight resiny / piney aftertaste. Very clean and relatively basic textbook IPA flavor. Balanced malt and hops, but in the aftertaste, the hops win out.

M: Medium viscosity. Moderate carbonation with moderately-sized bubbles.

O: Everything is textbook about this beer from the scent to the flavor to the mouthfeel. A good benchmark IPA.

A- Pours a slightly dark clear amber with big head taht stuck around for awhile with pretty strong lacing,
S- floral hops throughout, can notice the malt in the scents
T- strong all around, malty backbone with tons of hops on top, solid piney grassy flavors
M- pretty heavy for the style on the mouth, still crisp in the carbonation thou
D- pretty solid however if i were picking between this bottle and the ruination, ill prolly pick ruination every time
