Nice clear amber color with a nice light tan frothy 1 finger head. Pretty good retention and ok lacing.
Floral hops on the nose are most prevalent, kind of like potpourri and an almost soapiness there. Faint caramel malt trying to show up.
Flavor is good with pretty good balance. Floral and mild pine hops notes with solid hop bitterness are the defining characteristics with an underlining mild caramel malt body.
Medium bodied mouthfeel due to the bitterness. Fairy fresh and crisp with med-high carbonation.
Overall it's a good, pretty highly drinkable IPA. Nothing mind blowing by any means. I think it's a little heavy on the buttering hops and could use a little more flavorful finishing hops. But it's a solid IPA.

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.
