Appearance: golden to orange color. pretty good clarity. two fingers of a white head that fades slowly and leaves a fairly strong lacing behind

Smell: grassy, resiny, and slightly earthy hops. fairly strong and sweet crystal malts.

Taste: some bready to sweet crystal malts upfront. opens up with hops. lots of resin. some pine and even less earthiness.

Mouthfeel: lots of bitterness. low sweetness compared to the hops.

Overall: a fairly dull flavored IIPA. the hops don't focus on the flavor but rather the bitterness. malts are overly crystally and don't quite balance the hops.
