A: Golden copper. Darker than your run of the mill west coast ipa. Single finger head.

S: Citrus fruit and pine. Powerful punch.

T: Oh, yeah.. Maltiness holds things down for wonderful hops. Pine hits you first then immediately into a lemon citrus flavor. Pretty bitter for 60IBU but not lingering.

M: The maltiness gives a full mouthfeel, while still being clearly a westcoast ipa.
