12oz brown bottle with a bottled on date on the label.
Perfect clarity, dense froth sticks well. Hoppy aroma smells if cilantro, hemp seed oil and grapefruit. Smoothness is there and pretty deep at that, slightly chewy malt body. Hops are amped-up with a quick sharp sting of bitterness and a whole lot of lingering flavor; fresh cut grass, grapefruit, lime leaf and mint. Malt base many not be able to flaunt much but it does a great job to hold this beer together, hint of breadiness towards the end. Kiss of alcohol in the dry-ish hoppy finish.
All in all a very solid IPA, talkin the talk and walkin the walk now.
