A: Pours a nice, clear amber - orange with a good foamy head that hangs on for a long time.

S: Bold hops and fruit (lemons/citrus, apricot). It's malty, and the alcohol is already making it's presence known.

T: The high quality hops jump out immediately, and hold strong throughout. The fruity apricot note is breaking through at times. Again, the alcohol is super prevalent, and a nice peppery finish compliments it all.

F: This well rounded, heavy (for the style) beer holds a great level of carbonation and is satisfying throughout.

O: I really enjoy this beer every time. It's a great, drinkable version of what a big IPA should be. If you like a nice, hoppy IPA, the this is a must try.
