Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a hazy, kinda dirty orange and brown color with no head and no lace.

S- Pretty big and bright floral and citrusy hops with a caramel malt backbone.

T- Lots of very bright and fresh hop character of floral, citrusy, and leafy hops. There was a very nice and pronounced sweet caramel malt backbone that complemented the hops very well.

M- Very dry and refreshing, medium boy, soft carbonation, and very smooth.

O- This is an incredible IPA bursting with fresh hops. This beer packs a big hop punch,but the malt backbone is really outstanding and makes this beer special.

Pours an unfiltered orange with little foam and a bit of lace. Aroma of pungent grapefruit and leafy hop. In the taste, fairly bitter and coarse hoppy flavor and some citrus. Nice semi toasty malt backbone supports a good wet hop character. Nice bitterness and citrus. Medium bodied with a strong carbonation. Overall this is a solid IPA.
