Served on tap into a pint glass. You mean it, a whole pint for me?!

A- pours a clear shade of orange with a one finger white head. Looks great

S- mild citrus aroma. Not very pungent

T- juicy, strong hop flavor. Lots of citrus. Bitterness is very mild

M- medium bodied

O- liked this slightly more than the Southern Hem. Very good beer

24 oz.

Pours a mostly clear amber gold, half inch head basically white, dissipates slow and retains as a lacing.

Smells of floral and pine resin hops and a hint of citrus.

Tastes of flavorful floral hops and again some pine hops, surprisingly not too bitter. Some citrus and grassy malts round it out.

Medium to full body with a tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Fantastic IPA, possibly one of the best I've had, at least in a while. Definitely would have again, and worth seeking out.
