Poured into a tulip. This one pours a golden straw color with about a finger of white head. A little bit of soapy lace on this one.

Lots of citrus in this with candied orange zest and pineapple in the aroma. Hints of caramel linger in the background. The flavor gives off a big bitter profile throughout the pallet. Hints of oranges but this one is bitter as heck on the tongue. Really no nonsense here with some herbal tones finishing this off.

Medium bodied with good carbonation. A bit dry on the finish. Overall this one is a rock solid IPA. Glad to see one fall into my lap again.

A- Very crystal clear, strong presence of bubbles. Almost lager like in appearance lacking the haze of most IPAs. 1/2 head dissipates into thin white layer that hangs on throughout. Minimal lacing.

S- Warm hops, not so piney or citrusy, a little drier more a dry hop smell. Very pleasant. The smell and appearance definitely deceive you on what you are about to taste.

T- Awesome. Just great. People who say it's better than Pliny are delusional but with the pleasure one gets from this it's almost an excusable delusion. Warm hops, chewy citrus peel, and some malt in there.

M- Strong carbonation, crisp as can be, definitely one I would drink all day errrday. Nice bitter finish.

O- A great beer. My second RR and damn they know their stuff. Not disappointed, thanks Dad.
