A. Average poor ½ inch yellow head dissipates to lacey film around the glass. Little carbonation. Golden in color.
S. Hops, citrus, pine, lemon grass
T. Immediate wall of pine and hops. Same as smell with a light honey taste.
M. Chalky, watery, and dry.
O. Very good. I’m impressed. Recommend to IPA drinkers. It’s like NB Rampant’s little brother Less than average buzz for 6.5%.

As with almost any IPA from any Colorado brewery it's spot on. Love it. Not my favorite, but it's definitely worth trying and I would absolutely never complain if they were around!
