Pours with an inch of head, body is a clear, light amber color. Patchy lacing. Smells kinda piney, very slight grapefruit, some malt is there as well.

Tastes very resiny, reminiscent of some fresh hop beers I've had. A little bit of pine, plenty of hops to be had here, and more malt than I usually prefer in an IPA, but this one pulls it off quite nicely. Long, bitter finish. Full mouthfeel, and as with any good IPA, highly drinkable.
