16 oz can poured into a Belgian Ale glass.

A - Pours a rather light (for an IPA) amber. Fair head, average amount of lacing.

S - Citrus. Lemon, slight hint of mango. Some pine cone and earth, too.

T - Rather light for an IPA, but still has a tasty malt backbone. Slightly sweet. Citra hops are certainly noticeable. Mango, citrus (especially lime) in good amounts. Bit of pine and an almost perfect level of hoppy bitterness for an IPA.

F - Incredibly drinkable. Dangerous, actually. Crisp, but still enough kick from the malt where it doesn't venture into IPL territory. Not that IPL's are a bad thing, but it's certainly IPA feel.

O - An outstanding beer by The Alchemist (would we expect anything different? Hell no). Not Heady quality, but you can't expect that. An outstanding beer, loved it.
