Appearance:
Clear amber body with plenty of carbonation at first, but then settles down. The head is light and foamy with gap here and there, but it does stick around for a bit. There is a thin lacing around the glass.

Smell:
Strong hops and floral aromas come through, grapefruit zest and caramel all smell good.

Taste:
Strong hops up front and bitter through out, the malts come in mid tongue and then a slight alcohol flavor in the aftertaste along with some mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied and lots of carbonation and very smooth.

Overall:
It looks really inviting upon first sight, the aromas really make you thirsty and its smoother than expected. This is a great IPA and you shouldn't skip out on this one.

One if my favorite IPA's huge hop aroma and flavor but beautifully complimented by a strong malt backbone. Love the balance of this beer and the way the hop aroma hits your nose before every sip. Very enjoyable beer but watch out...a few of these will bite ya. Salute.
