A. Golden amber , more reddish than gold,full head that hangs out while you admire the smell. Plenty of lacing.
S. breads malts citrus and little raisin with a slight spice.
T. Heavy bitterness, malty goodness and more distinct hop, magnum, citra and crystal to be exact, the combination of these hops make a great tasting burp
M. Full mouthfeel, sticky resin flow, cotton mouth
O. Awesome beer for hop heads, and wannabes like myself. A simple IPA with an impressive taste
