From tap at Henrys 12th Street. Pours with a great head and settles into a nice lace. Good deep gold, light brown hue. Richly aromatic with fresh hops, citrus, ginger, and exotic spice notes. Flavor is rich and shows more of the same fresh notes as the nose suggests. The texture is what sets this brew apart. This is a rich, delicious IPA. The hops are so well integrated that there is little apparent tannin on the finish. Balanced and easy to sip on. Maybe not for the IPA purists, but I am a huge fan nonetheless!

Serving type: on-tap

Light malt, heavy citrus hops. Similar to Julius but not as citrusy. Bitterness lingers, perhaps too much. More pine than I would like. Overall solid beer. Would drink again, great summer beer. ..............................................................
