A cloudy amber/orange pour with an attractive but quickly dissipating head. A fresh scent of tangerine and lemon. A light and drinkable beer with a nice combination of tangerine (following the nose) and grapefruit. An excellent IPA which I will seek out again and hope to try on tap someday. Thanks Monty in AZ for this one.
