Notes/Commercial Description:
Hopheads Unite! This India Pale Ale has enough hop assertiveness to stand up to the IPAs of the Pacific Northwest. The Warrior and Amarillo hops are a one-two punch to the senses and provide a pleasant, spicy, citricy hop bitterness and flavor across the palate and deep into the finish.

Cloudy dirty orange color, I thought the server brought me a hefe at first glance.
Smells nice and citrus fruity. Definately not a hefe. A+
Rich juicy mouthfeel, tastes like it looks and smells... really good hop juice. Amarillo in here for sure. Mostly late addition, low bitterness.
Looks weird, tastes great.

Served in a cold ale glass.

Two fingers head, bartender overflowed the head to deliver a full serving. Color was medium amber, slightly clouded.

Aroma was citrus and hops, not overly strong.

Mouth-feel had a hint of grit, went to the rear of the throat and remained. Flavor was citrus and hops with some bitterness. Excellent blend of hops.

Lacing was great with very fine bubbles.

I have had very few better IPAs. This one just kept on giving and made it difficult to follow with a different beer. Next time it will be the closer.

On tap in a shaker pint glass.

Look: Slightly hazy orangish amber color with an light cream colored head. The head recedes to a wisp and thick bands of lacing line the glass.

Aroma: Nice floral hops, and sweet subtle apricot and fruit notes.

Taste: A nice bitter pine beginning with a coating of sweet fruits. The finish is hoppy as well. It's like a hop sandwich with an apricot center.

Mouthfeel: Slightly sticky, with medium body.

Overall: Excellent flavor. This IPA is delicious.
