A: Hazy copper with decently large off-white head. Retention is good with some lacing.Some bubbling going on.

S:Piney, grapefruit, pineapple, and resin hops. Caramel malt.

T: Touch of caramel sweetness. Tangerines with a grapefruit and peach aftertaste. Graininess towards the end. Decent bitter hop bite. Touch of alcohol in the middle.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Prickly and slightly dry.

O: Tasty, fresh, and cheap IPA. No dates on bottle, could've easily been old.

Serving type: bottle
