12 oz bottle poured in to a tulip glass.

A- Pours an absolutely magnificent 2.5 finger rocky tan head with an opaque orange/ amber body. Tons of lacing all the way down the glass.

S- Hops, hops, and more hops. Lemon, wet fresh-cut grass, and a little bit of pine. Subtle sweetness.

T- Piney hops and not as much citrus as expected. A slight nutiness peaks through towards the end. Solid.

M- Light to medium bodied brew with no oily feel as with most. Definitely different.

O- Great take on the American IPA. Will not disappoint. A must try for hop heads.
