It's nice and clear. Light orange.

The taste is hoppy, but not medicine

It has a very clean, even smell. I can't place it, though.

This is the first IPA that I've ever liked. I can't believe

The mouthfeel is very creamy and even. I really like it.

Although I liked it, it's still slightly too bitter for my tastes.

Pours a orange/amber/tan color, the hues slightly remind me of the look of a marzen. The head is about 3/4 of an inch an has pretty good retention. Carbonation is visible. This is truly a visually appealing beer. Smell is of toffee, grainy malts, and citrus hops. The taste emphasizes the malts, but it still doesn't seem disproportionally flavored to me. The taste starts with a caramel sweetness them gets a mottled more toasty. A slight bitterness is imparted by the citric hops. Mouthfeel is good, feels satisfyingly thick, often other pale ales feel a little weak in this dept to me. I really enjoyed this, I'd love to get my hands on more of it to drink as an everyday sort of beer.
