22 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A - Cloudy orange and gold color with a haze of head. Spotty lacing litters the glass along with a light head and a small filmy retention of foam.
S - Nice bouquet of citrus, hops, malt, caramel, and assorted tropical fruits.
T - Begins with a wave of hoppy citrus which carries from beginning to end. Bitter juicy hops explode from the inital sip, and eventually emitting pineapple and grapefruit. A slightly sweet malt backbone balances everything out but still allows the hops to cry out. The booze is masked well with a dry, yet bitter finish.
M/D - Medium body, bubbly, dry with hops, but still goes down incredibly easy considering the style.
Awesome IPA. Dont sleep on this beer, especially since youre probably wasting money on something far less tasty.
