From 12 oz bottle, packed on 10/05/17. Pours amber with the nice white head. Good lacing. Nice aroma of hops. that quickly disappears after a bottle is opened. Medium body, well carbonated. Average pale ale.

This beer is true to the style of IPAs. It's not too hoppy like a lot of other American IPAs.. Poured into a standard pint glass, I got a finger of head with moderate carbonation. The smell is beautiful with cascade hoppes being the most prominent. When you drink it, you immediately notice the hop profile along with a good balance of malt backbone. The finish is a light bitterness from the cascade hoppes that leaves fuji wanting another sip. If someone were to ask me what is an IPA Style Beer this is what I would show them! All around fantastic go to beer year around.

Outstanding beer. Extremely well balanced--all components of the flavor come together and form a smooth synergy, nothing in particular stands out. The mouthfeel is full and creamy (simply taking swigs from a bottle generates a thick head inside of the bottle) while the beer still manages to be refreshing. Maybe the most easy drinking beer I've ever had.
