Golden with a generous head that slowly dissipated. Smells of hops - piney, citrus, and spicy hops. This is a bitter brew, tasting principally of hops as indicated by the nose. This is an IPA, so i expect bitter, and thankfully the piney, citrus, and spicy flavors are there too. Still very drinkable, ending dry and bitter. Makes me want some more.

Pours an amber brown color, orange tinted brown head.

Smells of fruity floral hops and some mild brown sugar malt.

Tastes of bitter piney and floral hops with some bready malt character.

Medium body with tingles of carbonation throughout.

A really good pale ale, great flavor mix and balance. Would definitely have again, probably one of the better American IPAs I've had, hands down.
