12 oz. bottle poured into an unbranded cervoise glass

Pours a deep golden with abundant amber highlights and a bit of orangish hues. Huge, fluffy bright white head. Exceptional retention and a large amount of lacing. Fantastic nose, citrus blossoms, pineapple, light grapefruit rind accents, and just a touch of pine. Pineapple and mango, herbal notes, balanced perfectly by slightly sweet bready malt, and finishes with gentle and pleasant grapefruit rind bitterness. Heavy light bodied, to very light medium bodied, smooth and sliky and moderately carbonated. This brew is exceptionally balanced in almost every aspect. A nearly flawless west coast-style IPA.

Bitter but not a lot of complexity. Would be great with steak. Smells smoky. Appearance is dark amber but a little cloudy. Is a beer I could enjoy watching football or on date night with my wife. Enjoyed this beer at a bar but have never seen it at the grocery store. Great entry level beer.

Serving type: on-tap
