Pours slightly hazed amber with a lasting creamy head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of a robust citric aroma from plenty of amarillo hops.

The taste is of bitter citrus and some peach balanced by a firm caramel malty sweetness. A bit of alcohol shows in the finish.

It is creamy and smooth despite a bitter, spicy bite.

This showcases the amarillo hops well while keeping enough balance to it to be smooth and very drinkable. Alcohol shows a bit, but is well-integrated. An excellent IPA!
