A - Couldn't tell the color due to low lighting --- the head dissipated quickly leaving tiny lace in the middle of the glass
S - a bit of citrus and lots of hops
T - Excellent! Well balanced with lots of hops. Some type of fruit with a tiny bit of grapefruit or grapefruit pith at the very end. The hops stay through for a long time and are well balanced with the rest of the taste. Really tasty.
M - Well carbonated
D - Smooth - very drinkable - after a while a bit astringent and high alcohol content so probably wouldn't have too many in one setting. But great balance and really enjoyed it.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a two month-old 12 oz bottle into a willi glass. It's a clear gold with slight orange color and a one finger tight head and minimal lacing. Beautiful floral and citrus notes on the aroma with just a touch of dank. Taste is of citrus, particularly orange, and malty sweetness, followed by a hint of dank. Mouth is perfect for the style. Overall, this is a great IPA. I wish I could get it easier where I'm at.

Pours a nice, light copper with a thick head that slowly dissipates. The aroma is pleasant with pine and orange blended with a slightly sweet malt. The orange comes through more strongly as it warms up a bit. Right upfront is a distinct citrus and orange rind flavor, flowed by pine. The palate ends abruptly with a resinous bitterness and a hint of astringency. Not much in the way of malt, unfortunately. Mouth feel is a on the lighter-side--a bit watery. A Good IPA, but not great.
