Pours a clear dark orange with little flecks floating around. Nice persistent thick head. Fresh floraly hop aromas, and flavors for that matter. Nicely balanced, solid IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pleasant translucent amber to copper color on the pour, with a purposeful head and oodles of lace to cover the glass. Hints of hops in the nose, citrus crisp, fresh light malt aromas also present. The start is sweet with a nice malt presence and the top middling in feel. Finish is masterfully hopped, pleasingly acidic with an apropos dryness in the aftertaste. Clipper City Brewery makes some good drinkable beers that I wish were more readily available here.
