Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into an IPAD glass (marked "enjoy by 12/15/14").

Appearance: Clear, bright gold with frothy white head. Recedes to spare lacing.

Smell: Sweetish malts and grassy, floral hops.

Taste: Round, caramel malty body balanced by herbal hops and some earthy minerality. Bitter, but only enough to balance the malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Full hop and malt flavors, well balanced throughout.

Nice hoppy nose. Medium bitter finish. Easily on par with Odell IPA.

My favorite IPA - this is what I compare all of my other IPA tastings to. Perfect hop aroma with crisp tangy citrus flavor. Yummy!
