Surprising taste not overpowering. It does have a lingering after taste that hurts the beer however, this is def. top two IPAs i have tasted. Appearance is a very crisp brown barely see through; it's amber like. Smell is very spicy I won't ruin it for you.

Bottle into mug

A...pretty clear orange/amber color with three finger head and great lacing.

S...pine, grass,earth and a slight citrus.

T...excellent balance. nice malty backbone with just the right amount of hops for a good finish. Not an extreme Ipa. No specific flavors stand above the others, just a great balance.

M...feels thick and sticky. maybe could go for a little more carbonation.

O...this is the beer that got me started on ipa's. I like the balance and nice hop kick at the end. This is an absolute must try.
