poures a bright golden copper body with a two finger off white head that slowly fades down to a frothy cap while leaving a good amount of lacing. smell is sweet malts, big citrus hops. taste is citrus hops with a very well balanced malt backbone to carry thru start to finish. mouthfeel starts out sticky but fades to a dry ever so slightly bitter finish. has good carbonation also. overall i'm very pleased with this beer. my only complaint is that i wish the head didnt fade so fast.

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
