Poured from bottle to pint glass.
Appearance: Reddish-copper in color, looks like a glass of tea almost with an off-white head. Head stands well and looked as if I had some ice cream with my beer.
Smell: Lots of citrus and some piney notes, definitely similar to many other IPAs I've tasted. Slight maltiness, but not overwhelming at all.
Taste: Very well hopped with the slight maltiness and definite citrus. Hits the style spot on in my opinion.
Mouthfeel: Medium to medium-light in body. Doesn't have any harsh hoppiness that stays on the tongue after each sip.
Overall, great American IPA, one of my favorites for sure. Highly recommend giving this one a shot and not bad for a first IPA for someone.

A - Dark copper orange, almost bronze, with a slight haziness, moderate head in the pour reduces to a thin but complete white film that delivers pretty massive lacing.
S - Mostly lemon and pine - crisp and clean, but somewhat quiet overall. A subtle note of honey, as well. Overall, the nose is much like a honey lemon throat lozenge, but the most delicious one you've ever had. Initial thought is this could go either way.
T - While the flavor follows the nose, there is not much quiet here. Big hop hits of pine, lemon zest and pith, and a sweet, malty honey core. Lush, almost buttery feel, but with a strong bitter close keeps things snappy.
M - Moderate carbonation and mild drying.
O - A good choice for the hophead aiming to drink a couple down without getting trashed. There are big hop flavors, a nice malt counterpoint, and a reasonable, but not sessionable, ABV.
