Pours with a dense white head and an amber color. Awesome hoppy aroma. Head dies down to amber light cover that laces well. Not too bitter. A very good IPA

A: pours a nice clear orange with a slightly off white head. excellent lacing.

S: wonderfully citursy, fruity nose oranges, slightly pine.

T: again, big fruity citrus with grassy / piney flavor mixed in. excellent. Finishes with a trace of hop on the palate. very easy drinking. slight malt backbone balances nicely on the finish.

M: crisp and appropriately carbonated.

O: excellent beer. I understand they'll be distributing to TX in the summer...I'll be buying some of this.
