Bone white head over a slightly hazy sunburst color body.
This beer smells great, very tropical and fruity, with the typical citrus present but not talking a front seat. Tropical is a major aspect of IPAs i search out, and these Nelson Sauvin hops have delievered. Taste is not as bitter as i was expecting which is a welcome change from a cali brewery and i am digging this, in fact dare i say with the rye aspect of this being involved there is a certain balance? However i would appreciate more dryness on the finish and more specifically and importantly more carbination, i think it is lacking a bit there, and would allow the great hop profile to pop out a bit more. Solid IPA i really am enjoying.
