Orange amber color with a thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Delicious aroma of pine, grapefruits, fresh oranges, slightly toasted malts, flowers and caramels. Lasts through the whole degustation.
Hops, hops, hops! Bold and bitter flavor of spices, citric hops, American yeast, pine resin, lemon, tobacco, caramel and toasted malts, saffron and lemongrass. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness that won’t go away.
Medium body with carbonation of tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 7.3% abv is hardly noticeable.
World class IPA, perfectly executed. Bold with an insistent bitterness. This one is hard to improve. Still so balanced, that my wife who does not like beers, found it nice, despite of its 95 IBUs and 7.3% abv.

Poured form a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Orangeish apperance with a nice white head that takes it time to disapate. Smells…Pine, Hops, lots of hops some citrus notes are prevalent as well. Taste is what I've come to expect from these West Coast styles, the first thing that my tounge noticed was the hoppy, piney taste that I love. Real nice mouthfeel, bitter but also some malts in there to balance it out. Awesome. The ABV is disguised well here so tread carefully but Enjoy!
