A: Poured from a bottle into a standard ale glass. A thick, white head lingered throughout and left tons of lacing. The beer itself was a crystal clear light amber color.

S: Lots of piney notes up front followed by citrus peel and maybe a bit of tobacco. The malt was detectable but played a decidedly supporting role.

T: Unlike in the nose, the malt is present here and I don't mind that a bit. Too many IPA's are nothing but unbalanced hop bombs. Anyone can add a ton of hops to a pale ale. Balance is missing from too many of them. The hops are still the dominant player in this beer but the malt balances it nicely enough to prevent them from being overwhelming.

M: Fairly creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O: I like this IPA. It's not an over the top IPA and it's certainly not a DIPA. Rather, it's a balanced beer in which the hops play the most important but not the only role. Nice beer to kick back and enjoy and you could actually drink more than one.
