Solid amber body with a very rich, creamy, off-white head. Strong caramel malt aroma with a good dose of pine and citrus hop aroma. The taste closely follows the smell with a decent residual hop bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied; coarse on the tongue; dry finish.

Not a bad IPA, it's just nothing special. It's not trying to be a big west coast hop bomb, yet doesn't really grab you with any other distinguishing character. Likeable, drinkable, just not memorable...

Poured from a bomber into a sampler. A moderate pour produces a creamy, frothy and billowy head that threatens to overflow the glass. The head lasts well, coating the top of the beer and the sides of the glass. The beer is a pale amber color with medium carbonation and is hazy.

Plenty of aromatic hops on the nose. The taste is quite unique, with most of the flavor provided by citrusy and spicy hops with a bit of something extra that I can't put my finger on- perhaps some malty flavors shining through. A hint of a sweet, candy-like taste to balance the hoppiness.

This is a very tasty IPA and probably a bit lower in alcohol than most. It's pretty easy drinking for an IPA, and probably just exceeds the bitterness of a typical west coast american pale.
