Extremely easy to drink. Perfect balance, clean taste, no heaviness. Poured from a bottle into a tall glass -- medium head, nice, light amber appearance, not too fizzy. No distinctive aroma. The bitterness is just right, refreshing and stimulating. It's just lacking some heft or intensity -- the aftertaste is a bit watery .

bottle to goblet

A: clear, light orange/copper. very little head, retreats quickly to edge the glass and slight lacing.

S: almost no smell. very faint citrus and pine

T: moderate hit of piney hops accompanied by a fizzy carbonation. not followed by much of anything except lingering bitterness and more pine. the alcohol is right there in your throat at the end.

M: quite a lot of carbonation, low - medium body. goes down smooth and the lingering feel in your mouth is good

O: I prefer a bit more complexity, taste and balance but it packs a good hit of decent tasting hops. not my favorite but drinkable.

This beer has a nice one finger amber color head. Although it didn't hang around long. It did leave some nice lacing though.

I was a little disappointed with the smell. There wasn't much to speak of. Was expecting a nice hoppy, IPA type smell but nothing much at all.

Despite the lack of smell it has a very good flavor. Some bitterness but no overpowering.

This is a very good IPA, not the best I've ever had but very good none the less.
