A very smooth IPA. Love the use of fresh hops. It really adds to the flavor of the beer. Definitely a step above heavy handed. Taste is very smooth and good. Not even abhint that it is over 8 percent. Another great Two Brothers brew! Color is bout perfect! Great beer!

A - Not much head to this just a 1/4 inch that settles to a mild lace ring. It's ok.
S - Smell is good for a DIPA not too hoppy mostly malts so it might be old. Smells actually nice.
T - Taste is great balanced taste of citrus and herbal hops, crystal malts and crackers about. Super easy to drink but not great.
M - Light to medium is this 8%

Overall it is good but I found it too lacking. It was 8.99 for the bottle its for sure not worth another purchase but it is one of the smoothest DIPA's I drank. Would love to try this fresh.
