A - Golden orange color, two finger head, medium lacing.
S - Very earthy, floral and herbal hops, spices, lots of pine, malts
T - You get the bitterness right off the bat, some of the spice and more earthy flavors, definitely has a strong malt backbone as well, but there's plenty of hop punch to go around.
M - Moderate, a fuller feeling IPA, with the IBU's tingling the mouth.
O - As much as I do like most SN brews, I really never could love this beer, its a decent IPA, nothing worth calling "extra" about though. For a run of the mill IPA, there's better out there, but its by no means bad.
