Amber color with lots of thick off-white head with good retention and leaving laces, actually almost a curtain on the glass.
Good citric aroma from its hops with notes of grapefruit and a bit of passion fruit, and hints of pine.
Nice bitter and flavorful taste, slightly toasted malts with a citric and fruity taste with hints of grapefruit. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with good carbonation and tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 7% ABV is simply not felt.
Quality beer and very well balanced American IPA. Very drinkable for its style.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours an orangish-amber hue with a thin white head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail down the glass.

S: Citrus – Malt – and hops aroma.

T: Sweet malt up front followed by a solid hop punch to the face. Finished slightly dry and tart.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Solid IPA – well balanced and hoppy.

12 ounce can
Served in a nonic pint glass

A - This is the second can out of a six pack that immediately gushed all over the counter. I managed to save two thirds of the contents. Obviously, I had a glass full of tan foam. It settled rather quickly to reveal a cloudy, orange beverage with golden highlights.

S - I stick my nose in the glass and get some grapefruit and orange aromas. There is also a fair amount of bready malt. It kind of reminds me of honey on a biscuit.

T - The citrus aromas translate to citrus flavors. It starts out with orange and grapefruit. Then it gives way to a sweet bread taste. The finish is bitter grapefruit.

M - It is kind of full bodied for and IPA with less carbonation than I would say is normal. Probably due to the massive release of CO2 when I cracked it open.

O - This is a balanced IPA with a bitter finish. It is not my style of IPA though. Hopefully, I remember to open the others over the sink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Nice copper shade with a very good head and amazingly sticky lacing.

Smell: Orange peel, pine, and a touch of malt.

Taste: Bitter citrus hops and sweet hops, with some spice and herbal flavor thrown in. Very good balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a moderate bitter aftertaste.

The Verdict: Excellent. Good balance between sweet malts and bitter hops, this is everything an IPA should be.
