This beer pours the expected ruby orange color with two fingers of head that quickly fades to one finger then slowly recedes, retaining a nice layer on top. The smell is fruit juicy hops, with orange, citrus, and melon dominating the front of the nose. A sweet smelling malt rounds out the bottom of the nose. This brew reminds me of 60 minutes, which is good.
Glug glug glug
The flavor tastes bitterer than the nose would have one believe, even then though it's pretty well balanced and tasty. Herbal bitterness that fades into a bittersweet fruit citrus rind flavor that in the end is sweetened mostly by the malt base rather than any hop combination. Overall a pretty nice IPA, a little watery in the mouth feel but this certainly holds its own against most IPAs I've had over the years.

In a bottle poured into a pint glass.
S-not much hop aroma there, some slight floral hints and a little bit of citrus on the nose.
T-well-balanced bitterness, not as hoppy as I'd like but still not bad. The malt backbone comes through more than expected, spice and pine resin are the most notable flavors.
M-full and thick, malty creaminess
Not a bad beer by this brewery. It's definitely not one I would yearn over, but nonetheless it is a rather good IPA.
