a: clear light copper body. two fingers of thick lumpy rocky head shows good staying power while leaving some sticky spiderweb lacing.

s: pine malt with a touch of citrus

t: malty body with an equally balanced piney hop body.

m: tad thin, good carbonation, oily feel, dry finish

o: really good year round ipa, don't know why it doesn't score higher.

Appearance- medium copper glow, head dissipates quickly even with semi-rough pour

Smell- light malt sweetness with a few floral notes but not too much hop for an IPA

Taste- rich sweet tip do the tounge with more than a hint of toffee, hop character comes as an afterthought

Mouthfeel- medium bodied smoothness but still drinks like an ale, don't confuse it with a lager

Overall- a session IPA and what introduced me to future IPA styles
