A - A promising head that will not leave easily. Cloudy and amber.

S - Very up front, in a good way. You can certainly smell the hops, but there's something much more there.

T - Huh... that's beyond belief. Never have I had an IPA so smooth, so perfectly balanced between hops, malt and alcohol. It's a beautiful thing... it really is.

M - Fantastic. An absolutely awesome feeling.

O - BEST. IPA. EVER. Well best one that I've had, but I must say, it'll be hard to beat this one out.

Await trying it on tap some day...

Pours a nice darker color for an IPA. Only got a small head built up but great lacing down the glass. Smell is piney with a hint of malt sweetness. Great hop taste with this one. For a hop centered beer they keep everything in check. It's hop dominated but very well rounded. I like a beer that goes overboard with hops but I know a great balance as well. Great beer and for sure one to put on your list of beers to try.
