A: Big white head sits on the semi-clear orange beer. The head shows very good retention and excellent lace.

S: Aromas start with a big hoppy nose of citrus and floral hops. Also has some tropical fruit smells.

T: Starts with a sharp hop bitterness, with citrus fruit like grapefruit and oranges. Other flavors include tropical fruits and some malt sweetness in the background.

M: High carbonation on the feel, with a medium body. The beer finishes fairly bitter from the hops, but has some malts as well for balance.

O: Excellent example of an American IPA!
