Received in a trade from whatsarezaf.

Poured 12oz fresh bottle into a pint glass. Color was Golden/copper. Poured it about a fingers worth of head. Smell was light with some citrus notes. Taste besides being delightful was very well balanced. Not overly bitter and had a great mix of citrus and pine favors.

One of the best IPAs that I've had. Really wish this was distributed in my state.
