Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: a clear golden brew with a lot of carbonation in the pour but little head retention that left small spots of lacing.

Smells: a pine hop that has a sweet ring to it.

Tastes: a very hop forward IPA with a floral pine hop that bites my tongue in a great way. I enjoy the sweet citrus fruit flavors that are more apparent as it warms up a little.

Mouthfeel: there is a strong bitter bit from the generous amount of hops they infused in this ale but quite refreshing and smooth with the 7%.

Overall: Overall taste of this brew was right on the line between outstanding and very good.
