Pint pour on draft

A- Clear golden, with orange hues. White head hangs at about a quarter inch. With a little lacing.

S- Juicy citrus and pineapple. Light bread background throws in some balance.

T- More piney in hop flavor. Some pineapple, and the malt is a little more subdued than the aroma suggests.

M- Medium carbonation on a medium-light body. Finish is dry, and quite bitter.

O- Definitely like this one. I just wish the flavor was as juicy as the smell. Impeccable aroma for this one.

Solid 3 fingers of head. Light golden brown orange color. Smell the hops citrus and malts. Strangely light and smooth in the mouth. Very odd for an IPA. Taste hops, citrus (orange peel) and malt but no bitterness like most IPAs. Really drinkable. Head lingers. Hints of fruit. Maybe apricots? Very subtle. Solid clean IPA. Only Double Jack is better but that will knock you out. You can drink several of these without calling old significant others.
