A-Orange with golden tinge at the edges. Clear. Good foam. Good carbonation.
S-doesn't smell as hoppy as most IPAs. in fact i can easily detect the malt characteristic from the aroma.
T-Delicious. Definitely spicy and bitter from good amount of hops but there is not particular bitter note that stands out. Maybe from not using west coast hop varieties, i don't get any grapefruit/citrus i instead get a bitter that to me is more pleasant.
i probably wouldn't enjoy having more than one of these in a session but just one goes down easy. after west coasters this could be categorized as a pale ale instead, though i know saranac does one of those too. still, i enjoyed it. cheers
