Poured from a 22 ounce bottle, note visible date. It is of a golden color, a one finger white head that dissipated into lacing. This beer has a nice citrus aroma, with some pine and sweet malt. Taste is not overpowering with hops, rather easy drinking, with notes of pear, pine, and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean, with moderate carbonation. This would be a good beer to have with poultry or fish, but not what I am looking for from IPA. It does not make a strong enough statement.

A - Nice clear copper. Stark white head, lots of cling. Looks very inviting.

S - Sweet malt is dominant. Hops are very muted.

T - Taste matches smell almost perfectly, but maltier and less hoppy than I had hoped.

M - Medium body, good carb, balance is definitely to the malt. Hops are very low.

D - One is enough. Too sweet and not hoppy enough for an IPA. Maybe an older bottle?

From the tap it has a copper color with medium head. It looks a little hazy perhaps.
Odor is of citrus, pine and general floral.
Taste focuses on the hops. Floral, piney and citrus all are there. Mouth feel is somewhat light, but still has some nice body.
