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.
