Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine two finger aged ivory colored head with great retention and tons of lacing. Bright aroma of tropical fruit and citrus hops upon opening the bottle followed by bready malt, tropical fruit and citrus hops in the glass. Flavor is rich sweet malt, citrus rind, grassy and citrus hops with a nice herbal and citrus hop finish. Medium bodied with a very pleasant creaminess. A pleasant citrusy IPA with a deep malt body. Maltier than other IPAs brewed by Firestone Walker, but tasty and well hopped. Perhaps this was the way they made them in 500 BC. (623 characters)
