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.

On a rusty afternoon, hands covered on the spices of hatch, Dortmund rolling the ball, this brew entertains me. Ruby, staring back at me, waiting for the connection, sending me messages of cherry, honey, flowers. Then... It happens. I taste sweet bitterness. Everything an I.P.A. Has to offer and then some. Everything I smelled is there. But in a language my taste buds understand. Apricot, chillin with me. Smooth, nice, I dig it.
