Upon opening, little smoke comes out. Upon pouring a two to three finger head forms that is of a creamy off whit color that is fluffly and retains and laces very well. The body is a brownish orange color but not as orange as lots of IPA's are. Its more of a brown color. You can see some bubbles rise to the top which is a good sign.

The smell is of hops, citrus, and grassy tones. It seems to have herbal aromas in it as well as the citrus and hops. Smells great.

taste is what of I would call herbal aromas and hops with some citrus taste. Liking it a lot. I normally love the overaloaded hoppy bitterness in IPA's but this one being a bit different is still really hoppy in a different way but still really nice.

Its carbonated a good amount. Its a bit thick and nice.

Give this one a try. I like it a lot. Citrus and herby aromas are nice in IPA's.
