P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: Pours clear dark gold with a big, creamy off white head. A very nice looking pour.

S: Lemon citrus and a little pine hop aroma. Slightly earthy and grassy.

T: Citrus rind bitterness with a piney finish. A touch of sweet malt but the bitterness of the hops is main player in this beer.

M: Well carbonated, mouth feel is a bit on the thin side. Easy drinking and refreshing on both accounts.

O: This is a solid IPA that showcases the hop varieties over the malt base. It's easy drinking and quite refreshing on a hot and humid summer afternoon. It may not stand out among the massive variety of IPA's on the market but I don't think it would disappoint most IPA fans.

This is another one of my go to beers when I see it on tap. A nice, crisp IPA with plenty of that hop flower taste but a clean finish. It goes well with brats, sauerkraut and onions.
