Pours out a clear copper color with a big two to three finger head. Nice and fluffy with amazing head retention.

The aroma is full of citrus and pine like hops. But this ale is very balanced for an American IPA. There is plenty of bread aroma from the barley as well as a little sweetness from the alcohol.

The flavor is a sharp, crisp, bitter hop that hits the tongue at first. But the malt come in just in time to make this IPA have a good balance. Bread and bitter hops are the dominate flavor. The alcohol is nice and warming.

Medium bodied easy to drink, lightly carbonated, and finishes dry and hoppy.

This American IPA is just delicious... no more to add! Pick up some!!
