Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden amber color, thin white head very little lacing.

Smell: Citrus, hops, and pine notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Strong bitter pine taste with a good hint of hops and citrus.

Overall: Good IPA. Would buy this one again.

On tap in 16 oz pint glass

A- golden yellow in color with a 1/2" head that had decent stability. lacing was average.

S- for the hop character there is hardly any strong aroma. picking up a bit of vanilla and grassiness but much lighter than anticipated.

T- hops much more evident than on the nose, but pretty well balanced with the malt. after a few sips though you. Know you are drinking a IIPA.

M-nicely balanced and pretty drinkable. decent hop profile and carbonation is about right.

O - nice example of a IIPA. not in the top tier but enjoyable none the less.
