What a beautiful brew, thick and delicious with tasty residue visible in the glass. Malty and fruity in its own unique way. A real treat.

Wow I am loving this IPA. It's a beautiful hazy golden color, and laces the glass nicely.
Wonderfully flavorful and Bursting with that floral, citrusy, hoppy taste I crave. Now among my top beer choices.
