Poured from a 12 bottle into an IPA glass. Pours an orange golden color with a small fluffy head. Smells of earthy and piney hops, nice aroma. Tastes of earthy hops and nice grain bouquet. Beer is light bodied and refreshing, very much finishing smooth with good to slightly high carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Pours a hazy sandy orange with a white head, Aroma is sweet and juicy with some mango and grapefruit paired with a nice, toasty bready foundation. Flavor is quite similar.Mold bitterness in the finish. A crisp, active mouthfeel. OVerall, great IPA. Glad to have finally tried.
