I had this in a pint glass many times.
Today, once again I had it in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some nice speckled spider web lacing sticking and then sliding into the beer.
The smell had a sharp bittersweet citrus arranging itself into a nice crisp light piney - ness.
The taste offered a crisp bittersweet citrus and sharp pine and then as it warmed there was a decent caramel malt that combined nicely.
The mouthfeel was slightly harsh but good for the style and for me as it carried a nice crisp rolling outlay of delicious citrus over my palate.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that makes a great budget beer.
