Good beer. Was not crazy about the smell but also was not turned away by it. I prefer very strong hoppy smells. Taste is not overly hoppy but still has the slight bitter aftertaste that I enjoy. Alcohol content is perfect. I don't drink slot of beer and this is a one hitter that provides taste and kick. Overall a great sipping ipa that would not turn away non ipa drinkers. I would drink it again.

Hazy, medium amber in color, 1 finger thick creamy head, wonderful retention. Leaves a very thick lace along the glass.

Hops and some citrus peel aroma, not very strong in aroma though.

Not much sweetness or malt character, just hops resiny and a little citrus peel flavor.

Light in body, pretty smooth, has a refreshing quality to it

Overall not a bad beer, just a little one note.
