Slightly hazy amber color with a moderate white head that lingers and produces a bit of lacing.

The aroma is citrus and a hint of pine, very nice.

The taste starts with a blast of grapefruit and pine resin followed by slightly sweet malt and tropical fruit note for a really nice balance. Finishes dry with more pine resin lingering to make you want another drink.

Light/medium bodied, very drinkable. Altogether a very nice IPA, one of the best.

Not the beer I thought it would be. Really excited to try but the hype was a little too much.

Nice amber - yellow color, high opacity.
Smells like a good ipa. Nice hoppiness with some citrus.
Tastes like it smells except with less flavor than I expected.
Very watery mouth feel for an ipa.
Still, a solid brew.
