Poured into a mason jar. Why? Because it was clean.

A- gorgeous. When poured it leaves an off-white head upon a perfect orange body. As you drink the lace sticks to the glass like a sheet of ice and refuses to withdrawl.

S- different. The piney/citrus notes are there like any other ipa, but with a twist of caramel, bread & butter. It simply drops the "drink me" bomb. Obviously, I submit.

T- once again, bread and citrus; with a heavy touch of pine. The caramel cuts nicely against the hops, but doesn't hinder the resins from asserting their roles.

M- full and refined. Silky yet sparkling.

O- much better than I expected. I was assuming it to be just another ipa, but was pleasantly surprised.
