My go to American IPA. Very enjoyable. Good malt and hop balance. Nice lacing, a bit sticky.

Dark copper body with pure white head. Lacing is wonderful. Smell is the worst part of the beer. Smells like pine and citrus hops but it’s barely there if you’re looking for it. Tastes like American hops, grapefruit, and pine. Smoother and crisp dry finish. Top 5 ipa personally

Smooth, semi-dark amber-reddish/brown color. Distinct pine nose, Hoppy bitterness hits high as citrus and pine notes take over. Great AIPA!
