Bottle to tulip glass.

Seemed to be fairly fresh.

A: Light copper color. Fine-bubbly head that retreats to a bubbly head. Some lacing.

S: Tons of citrus. Strong notes of citrus-grapefruit. Mild notes of lemon, resin, and pine. Not extremely complex but very nice. Moderate aroma.

T: The taste has more resin presence, but still plenty of citrus. Certainly hoppy, but not overly so. A little bitter.

M: Very smooth, thus goes down very smoothly. Moderate carbonation. Moderate body.

O: A top-tier IPA, especially for fans of citrus-notes hops. This is very straight forward. This ale is defiantly sessionable.
