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.

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.

Poured very cloudy with sediment. No bottling date on bottle but perhaps it didn't age in the bottle very well. Fruity in the nose and too mild for what we've come to expect in an American IPA. Very bready. I would love to try it on draught and compare the appearance and the nose.
