Clear copper; light head; strong lacing throughout consumption; solid citrus on the nose; perfect up-front flavor balance; moderately hoppy; very solid sessionable beer all-in-all; the beer goes down smooth up-front too; slightly bitter on the back end; pretty straight-forward IPA offering.

Served on tap at the pub in Grand Rapids. Served in a nonic glass cool.

Pours a clear amber gem body and an off white thick head.

Fruity floral and sweet body. Taste is very similar with a profound floral herb flavor. Medium body and steady carbonation. Okay beer. Not great. Not very good representation of the style.

This is a light golden yellow. I pick up an aroma of sharp pine, followed by citrus and floral scents. It’s full of piney flavors, with a big chewy resiny finish that doesn’t quit. Definitely an IPA and a good one—in the spirit of a West Coast hop bomb. It has chew, heft, gravity and full flavor.
