Clear coppery amber with a fine, creamy, white head. Aroma is very resiny, mild fruity, peach and grapefruit. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and dry mouthfeel even if it does feel a little light. Flavor, naturally, has a lot of hops. Peachy, piney, resiny. Fairly sweet as the initial flavor with a heavy bitter and very dry aftertaste. Very good

22oz bottle into a stemless wine glass

Pours a nice clear copper color, hues of orange and light amber, a light soapy head appears, decent retention no lacing. The aroma is nice and citrusy with a great floral presence, very bright and vibrant just a touch of alcohol. The flavors are very nice, bright floral and zesty citrus, tangy juicy tropical fruits with a bit of bitter earthy pine, but this is a very bright IPA, astringent alcohol and some sweet malt finish this off very nicely. Body is good, medium carbonation, a touch soapy but it has a great dry finish.

Verdict: A really good IPA and for the value, there is nothing better (except Pliny on the west coast). This really hits the spot for any hop head and can hold it's own against many of the best IPAs out there.
