Clear, coppery orange with a thin foamy, slightly off white head.

Spicy, resiny, citric hop notes with a pleasant, caramel malt backing.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

A nice IPA, the spice and pine focus is a nice change of pace from the typical fruity hop profiles.

NEVER thought i would drink an ipa that was better than stone ipa but this is it.I have had sculpin ipa and imo this is way better,i like my ipa's big and bold,in your face hop bombs and this fits it to a tee.The first taste is hops and bitter then towards the end citrus and pine,not much malt for balance but thats ok.looks like liquid gold and taste pretty close to that too,my new favorite ipa .stone brewery beware.
