A - Pours a fantastic hazed golden orange with a finger plus of dense light off white head, fantastic retention, frothy tall ring remains around the perimeter 5 minutes later, across the surface is mostly a thin layer of head, semi-spotty. Lacing is fantastic. Honestly looks damn near perfect.

S - Grapefruit, orange and maybe a hint of lemon, slightly rindy/spiced aroma. Dry yet semi-sweet aroma.

T - Quite crisp but its got some depth to it. Initially orange and grapefruit, not overly bitter, but enough to be crisp and refreshing. Definitely a bit of resin/rind type flavor. Light minimal malty body, not very sweet. Finishes clean as hell with only a very tame light wet bitterness lingering.

M - Medium bodied, fairly thick for the style. Perfect carbonation and flavor make this one quite easy to throw back. Still a girthier IPA.
