Bottle into mug

A...perfectly clear yellow with a tinge of orange hue when held to light with a white two diner head. Very little lacing.

S...surprisingly malty in the aroma dept. Very small hint of the hops that I know are in here.

T...nicely balanced. Just the right balance of hops, malt and yeast. Hits you first with a little bit of biscuit then reminds you its an ipa with a nice bitternessand mild citrus. Balanced very well, it all works together instead of one flavor popping out at you.

M...nice carbo on this one. Crisp mouthfeel, nothing too heavy.

O...very good beer. Balanced enough to go down easy but has enough flavor that you want to savor it. Must try, especially in the folley pack. Killer deal for a 12er of some nice brews.

I had this on tap at the Todd English PUB in Las Vegas. This review is taken from notes.

The bar served this beer in a chalice glass. The coloring is orange with minimal cloudyness. The foam wasn't there, but I think that was from a generous pour by the bartender.

The flavoring on this beer was awesome. I really like the amount of citrus in there. The aftertaste was very clean. There was only some light bitterness.

This is a very good example of an IPA.
