A:
Pours a clear copper-tinged straw color with a tenacious three fingers of beige head that takes its time in settling down. Excellent retention; lots of luscious lacing.

S:
Just pouring the beer releases a cloud of very dry piney hop odors. Some caramel aromas with musty hop smell, also a hint of citrus

T:
Hay, grass, dough, hops. Really has a cohesive, earthy flavor. Dry and level with a bit of orange rind at the end.

M:
Dry, flat, short. Light-medium body, quick finish. Slight linger in the hop flavors, but doesn't wear out its welcome.

O:
Pretty tasty IPA. Maybe not a game-changer but a solid beer. Really hoppy without going overboard. There is actually a nice balance with the malt flavors considering how hoppy it is (basically, you can taste the malt if you concentrate). I haven't had much from these guys and while their whole image/writing on the labels annoys me, I have to admit, I'd be hard-pressed to be TOO awful negative about this beer.
Would have again. Worth trying if you have access.
