12 oz can poured into shaker pint

A: Light Amber color nice fluffy head dissipates to a small film good retention on the glass nice lacing as you proceed to the bottom

S: Resiny very biscuity malts too a little sweetness too

T: Very subtly hops a little resin a little floral/herbal than sweet malts that level out the hops in the end making for a very balanced finish

M: Medium bodied not too clingy did not notice palate fatigue

O: This is a pretty damn well balanced IPA is it earth shattering no probably not but I drank 7 of these back to back with almost no palate fatigue that is impressive in of its self. You really can't go wrong if you are out in an area with a shitty selection you will be fairly pleased. I like this MUCH better than the ubiquitous Lagunitas IPA.

Pours a deep slightly hazy amber gold. Fine off-white head retains well at about an eighth of an inch.

Smells of honey, orange citrus, and fresh floral hops.

Tastes of honey and biscuit malt and fruity and floral hops, very fresh.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

This is a very good stronger IPA and certainly worth trying if you find it. Very tasty and thirst-quenching.

Very good IPA. I've been drinking a lot of Hopnosh and I actually prefer this!
