Pours a murky orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, herbal hop, and slight nail polish remover aromas. Taste is much the same with pine, herbal hop, and slight floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and floral bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an odd nail polish remover aroma, but the flavors are solid.

Serving type: bottle.

When fresh, this stuff kicks butt. If after three months, my recommendation, don't drink.
Okay, well here's the rest.
I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light simple speckled lacing.
The smell had a nice sweet spicy citrus hops with a light burnt - ness to the hops.
The taste was mainly sweet with a crafted spicy to roasty / is that burnt hops?
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the palate. It does have a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good sessionable AIPA that I could have again.
