Solid and smooth ipa. Hides the abv well with very little bitterness. Pours a golden dark orange. Smells of hops and citrus. Little bitterness but not too much. You could drink more than one.

On tap, re-reviewed 8/2014 pours a translucent towards clear red-orange, with a sustaining film of head. The smell is of a mild sweetness and a dose of fresh cut grass.

The taste starts out a bit like a sweet amber ale, with a British pale ale copper undertone. This is quickly followed by a honey-golden raisin sweetness combined with the pine hops that do take over the taste. The sweetness lays low in the background, not letting the hops completely grab the tongue.

Some might find the sweetness interferes with the hops, others may find the hops a bit strong, I think it's a good balance. The beer's balance does come smoothly, but in the end it's a good beer.
