Beer poured into a "pint" glass from a 12oz bottle. Pours black with an off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of flowery hops with a touch of pine. Tastes of darker malt with nice hop bite, citrus notes coming forward. Beer is light bodied with good carbonation, finishes great. Overall a very good beer.

From notes on 11/9/13

Pours brownish black. Tan head. Earthy hop taste. Flowery smell. Interesting twist on an IPA.
