A - Fairly dark and hazy copper color with a large, thick, creamy, foamy, and sticky head. Pretty good retention with a nice sticky layer of lace left over.
S - Citrus grapefruit and orange pops out along with a lot of pine, floral, and herbal hops. Some pale malt in the background. Some caramel malt as well. Very strong hop hop aroma.
T - Much less fruit hop flavors than in the aroma. Good amount of pine and floral and some herbal hop flavors. Some pale malt in the background. A good amount of bitterness with just a touch of malty sweetness. Definitely more bitter, but not unbalanced. Slight citrus flavor lingers.
M - Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. A bit smooth and a touch of a drying finish.
D - Fairly drinkable beer with a good amount of hop flavors and bitterness. Not totally unbalanced, but a little unbalanced. Pretty refreshing drink though.
Notes: Pretty good beer, but not outstanding. Just seems like a basic IPA. Aroma is pretty strong and fruity while the taste is a bit more bitter and pine/floral taste.
