The beer pours a hybrid of a creamy and foamy white head that dissipates rather quickly, The beer itself is a clear orange and brown that borders on amber. The smell has a strong hoppy smell. The hops notes come off as orange with a bit of pine but is balanced by a light malt smell. The taste is similar to the smell. The hop taste comes off as a strong orange with a slight honey and bready taste to balance it out. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth and medium bodied. The mouthfeel also has an interesting fluffy feel to it because of the carbonation. Overall, a very good IPA and one I highly recommend getting, This beer is definitely one of their better offerings.

A: The beer is hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some small particulates near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high beige head that has good retention properties and took a long time to die down, consistently leaving a quarter finger high head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy and piney hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are stronger than the malts—flavors of grapefruit stand out in particular—and contribute a light to moderate amount of carbonation. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is easy to drink and has a good balance between the malts and hops.
