Pours a lovely hazy orange with a dense and compact head that leaves some lovely lacing all down the glass.
The aroma is awesome, I could smell it as soon as a I popped the cap. Lots of citrus and a hint of pine.
The taste is excellent! A big bitter bite with lots of fruit -- orange juice and pith, tropical fruits, a little pine and some sweet malt below. A nice finishing piney dryness.
Overall, just a top-notch IPA.
