On tap in a pint glass.
Appearance: copper with thick lace
Nose: flowers, hops, spicy
Taste: smooth with a crisp finish, heavy hop in the end with a spicy part
Mouthfeel: smooth start and crisp finish
Drinkability: This is a beer that you can spend an evening with. It would pair well with spicy Asian food or rich and thick foods as well. The high quantity of hops has the ability to cut through spicy and decadent foods well.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.
Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.
Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol
Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.
Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
