This is what an IPA should taste like.

A: A medium amber, and for some reason, whenever I pour there is a lot of head,
S: Smells hoppy, with a tinge of citrus.
T: Not too heavy on the hop-bite, yet distinctly presents itself as an IPA. Good aftertaste that lingers.
M: Medium, perfectly carbonated.
O: 4.75 - A fantastic IPA. I am at a very early point in my IPA-drinking education (I've probably only tried around 25-30 different IPA's), but this is easily my favorite thus far. A MUST try.
