Notes/Commercial Description:
Your first experience with this IPA is the citrus bouquet from its rocky white head. The initial taste is subdued but gradually becomes intense without any harsh bitterness. The Heartier the Better.

Nice artwork.

Decent beer. Prevalent hop spice thing going on. Thicker malt body than I would hope for. Mildly leans towards pine. Not really enough though. Could stand some more punch. Nice enough drinker, though.

Poured from a single mix a sixer into a pint glass.

Pours medium colored orange copper with heady layer of white foam. Bready nose, malty. Really strong bitter pops out and eases into citrussy lemon light flavor. Chewy pine bitter holds afterwards. Overall a good flavored IPA with a nice hop kick.

Pours a hazy golden honey colored body with a small white head with decent retention. Aromas are very citrusy with strong whiffs of pineapple and caramel. Tastes great! Bright zesty hops up front with a nicely sweetening malts with caramel flavors come through on the mid-palate before a zesty, piney, resinous finish.Nice balance, This is everything you look for in an IPA.

A - two finger white foamy head, really nice lacing, carbonation bubbles, color is between ruby and orange

S - hops, pine, citrus, malt

T - big citrus hops, piney like the smell, very mild bitterness, alcohol is masked fairly well

M - medium bodied, not too dry but not too sweet, light carbonation

O - Tasty IPA here, citrus hops but really mild overall. Drinkable and very nice from start to finish.

Nice ruby color, light head that doesn't stick around. The smell is light maltiness, taste is similar, with very little hop presence. Smooth and pleasant to drink, little to complain about, other than the lack of hops. Good enough, but if I were, say, being slowly built into a wall as an act of fatal revenge, I'd prefer something with a bit more flavor.
