Poured into a pint, no freshness date.

A: Very cloudy, hazy dark orange amber color. Finger of off white, creamy head which retains to the bottom and leaves webby lace. Darker color than I expected.

S: Grapefruit, sweet bready/toasty malt, a slight earthy/piney herbal quality as well.

T: Grapefruit and subtle pine, caramel and bready malt sweetness, the malts are a bit stronger than the hops here, but its very well balanced and easily drinkable.

M: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, nice creamy feel. Very enjoyable. Drinks like 4 or 5%

O: Very good, locally brewed IPA, nicely done. If you can find, its worth a try. Definitely recommended.
