poured from a bottle into my arrogant bastard pint glass. The head is an off white yellowish cream that leaves thin lacing on the glass as it recedes. The body is a coppery golden color that looks delicious.
The smell is a hop showcase, a blast of piney bitterness hits me right off the bat followed by a slight citrus and pineapple ,later on. If you homebrew and you have smelled straight citra hops out of the package, the scent of this beer is exactly that.
The flavor is great, this is a bitter IPA to be sure, the earthy pine flavor comes through very well. The malt inputs a slightly biscuit/bread flavor as well and minimal sweetness to the brew. The aftertaste sticks around for a while lingering with a solid bitter bite.
The mouthfeel is what I would expect from a single IPA, not too thin, not too thick. The amount of hops they must have put in here to overpower the malt so completely had to be a lot.
I like it overall, any IPA lover should try this guy to get a sense of what straight up citra hopping tastes like.

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanx Chris!
(A)- Pours a slightly hazed amber orange color. Some good white froth and lacing.
(S)- Good citrus meets subtle floral notes meets a good caramel malt base.
(T)- Similar to the smell. Great floral citrus and caramel malt.
(M)- A good carbonation level meets a nice balance of hop, malt, and bitterness.
(O)- Its a solid single hopped beer, just nothing all that exciting; quite straightforward.
