Beautifully copper-orange, like so many of the jingle shells found on the beach here on Marco Island, Florida. Nice white head looks like sea foam clinging to the sides of the glass.

On first nose, it's a hugely hop-bombed orange creamsicle. Varying levels of citrus give a really nice introduction.

Somewhat vegetative and spicy to begin evolves into the orange creamsicle suggested on the nose. It's punchy, delicate, bright and highly consuming.

There's a pretty significant spice to begin, but it does mellow quickly to reveal a long-lingering hoppiness.

Really great example of an IPA - hoppy, multi-dimensional, just sings.
