A: Pours a light slightly hazy amber, with a large amount of dense white foam. The head retains well and leaves thick clumps of lacing.

S: Fresh pine hops, with a floral note.

T: Sweet upfront leading into full hops from the middle through the finish. It's heavy on the hops as you'd expect an IPA to be, but given the style it's pretty well balanced.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, this is a very solid execution of the American IPA style. It doesn't do anything unique or new, but it does what it's supposed to do well.
