Bottled March 30, 2011

A - Bright and clear orange body, hints of brown and pink. Decently large offwhite head. Nice lace

S - Excellent crisp hops, pine, citrus, fresh cut grass. Mostly fruity aromas, not too biting or bitter.

T - Creamy and bitter hops, citrus and other fruits. Nice hop profile, and well backed by malt.

M - Nice and big, very smooth. Great feel

O (D) - A fantastic beer, a great, affordable, readily available IPA. No complaints.
