A: It is a beautiful, cloudy, medium-amber with a small amount of obvious carbonation. The head starts quite fluffy, at about two fingers, subsiding to one-finger after a minute or two, then to a constant, thin foam, with very nice lacing.

S: It has a very hoppy and fruity smell and, I'm embarrassed to say, maybe a little soy sauce or something; it has a very rich smell overall.

T: It has a beautiful, bitter, herbal hoppy flavor with the perfect balance of bitter to smooth for an American IPA.

M: It has medium-bodied, zesty, carbonated hop flavor that sticks to the back of the tongue.

D: I could drink quite a bit of this beer; It leaves its flavor in your mouth, reminding you of what you're missing if you don't have another.

A- A beautiful, cloudy, coppery orange with a nice white head and good retention.

S- Pine, orange rind, grapefruit and carmely malt. Sweet and aromatic with some depth to it.

T- Sweeter than most IPA's. Flavors are the same as the aroma with some noticeable alcohol.

M- Creamy and dry with the bitterness being very noticeable.

D- A very good American IPA. Highly recommended.
