This one of the best IPA's out there hands down!

A - nice deep gold to orange

S - Full of delicious hops, pine and citrus

T - Big bold flavor full of hops and grapefruit notes, with a piney aftertaste that is quite nice

M - Really creamy, coats the mouth, medium in body

D - I could drink this beer all night long. So good on many levels!

poured from a 12oz. bottle into a snifter glass

A: A delicious looking honeyed-orange copper color with a one-finger off-white foamy head. It goes away quickly yet leaves some nice thick lacing.

S: A superb-smelling beer, with lots of varied, complex hop aromas coupled with nice warm toasted caramel maltiness.

T: While the bready malted backbone of this beer is not to be ignored, this beer derives nearly all its flavor from the multitudes of hops, hops, and more hops! Zesty citrus hops blast your tongue to start, and fruity, juicy grapefruit & pine notes take over from there. The maltiness finishes everything up and keeps the beer from being overly bitter.

M: Oily, fizzy carbonation makes up the majority of this beer's feel.

D: Could easily drink these all day, this might be a new summer brew for me.
