12 oz bottle

A- pours a nice white head, that slowly dissipates into a film that creates sticky lacing.
A deep honey color with a slightly hazy body.

S- fresh citrus hops, tones of lemongrass, light tabacco, hints of apricot and peach, a very sweet earthiness. Maybe a slight biscuit malt smell but mostly dominated by hops.

T- sweet lemongrass, and a Perfect amount of alcohol to start. Finishes dry with a earthy finish. Slight bitterness at the end, with the sweet lemongrass biscuit aftertaste lingering.

M- light to medium carbonation, a bit thicker than most but finishes nice and dry. Full bodied and refreshing. In one word, smooth.

O- spectacular balance in all elements. This brew should be double the price for its quality and complexity. Perfect amount of alcohol is the strong point. Most IPA's drown out the alcohol with harsh bitterness. This brew lets you taste it and complements it with sweet biscuit and hop flavors. Truly a gem in the ipa market.

Pours a firey orange golden with a white head. Aroma was biscuit and orange, lot of rind and some of the fruity sugars. Flavor was bright orange, again lots of rind with some of the fruit sugars thrown in, all on top of a biscuit malt underbelly. Active, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, an alright brew. Easy to to drink but not one I plan on drinking again.
