A- poured a deep golden color with thick white frothy head that left a nice ring of lacing throughout. I don't see it as being hazy, I see it as ALMOST clear. Very nice looking beer.

S- citrus and hops that's what I smell. Citrus and hops.

T- fairly sweet in the begining like malt and grapefruit? Not real sure but I taste some citrus followed by slight bitterness of hops. Good for an IPA but not my favorite style. Well balanced for IPA

M- very smooth medium bodied beer. Excellent. Only complaint is the dryness.

O- well brewed Well balanced IPA. One of my favorites in this style of beers.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden color with a slight haziness. Thick, frothy, off white head that dissipates to a lacing that lasts throughout. Looks great.

Smell: Smells sweet at first, then comes with floral hoppiness.

Taste: Floral and citrus at first, then the hops pick up, not overly bitter like some IPAs, a little sweet.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, medium body, get a nice sting of alcohol that is not overbearing.

Overall: A nice IPA, it looks great and is easily drinkable. Recommended.
