Great hop aroma and hop flavor. Danky but balanced with great malt flavors and balanced bitterness.

Great IPA. So much hop flavor and aroma with a great balance of bitterness and malt backbone.

As of this review, I have reviewed every single beer from Kelsen. Fan much? Poured from a bomber into a standard glass.

A- Caramel/bronze, off-white two-finger head. Glass has some nice lacing. (4)

S- Big citrus hops start off the party. A crisp, sweet caramel scent follows with malts taking a backseat. This is good so far (4).

T- Big citrus hops, grapefruit, some pine in there, bitter aftertaste. I am getting some malt sweetness, some caramel, but mainly hops. I also get a roasted flavor at the finish, not sure if it's from the hops or the malts (4.25).

M- Crisp, not cloying like some other IPA's I've had. Nice light to medium body (4).

O- A nice way to finish off the Kelsen cannon. This is a great IPA, nicely balanced, a good one to start off with if you're just getting into IPA's (4.07).
