Drank at cellar temperature in a mug.

A three-finger, white puffy head here. Lasts quite a long time. This IPA is a clear amber color.

The smell isn't all that strong, but I do get some nice hops, honey, and pine.

Now the taste is a whole different story. First comes a wonderfully tangy and refreshing citrus sensation, and the rest of the plot entertains waves upon waves of thoroughly resinous, herbal bitterness. We have here some heavy hop flavor, I might add. A profoundly pleasureable experience.

The carbonation feels right on.

A great IPA. Doesn't mess around much with aromatics, though, instead cutting to the chase with upfront flavor.
